What furniture works best for your dining room? Get inspiration from these beautiful beach house spaces. Choosing smart seating is a key design decision in a gathering space like a dining room. The chairs and benches you select can help define the room’s color scheme and style. Choosing uniform pieces in a neutral finish, like these modern wooden chairs, can spotlight statement lighting or a rich wall color. The reverse is also effective: use seating to bring color to a neutral space. These modern green dining chairs shine brightly against the natural materials in the room, like stone and wood. Tailored slipcovered chairs add formality, particularly when paired with a rustic table. Choose linen or sturdy cotton canvas to keep the vibe beachy. Here, a pair of woven host chairs add contrasting color and texture. Banquette seating is another fun option—choose a complementary upholstery pattern or hue for a cozy twist on traditional seating. Banquettes are a nice way to add warmth to a dining room, like this eclectic one paired with metallic wallpaper and a textured lighting pendant. Incorporating antique and vintage seating is another way to warm up a dining room—try mixing a 19th-century English bench with traditional upholstered chairs for variety and interest. New upholstery can turn salvaged chairs into a colorful focal point. Often, it’s simple touches, like these numbered pillows, that will make a big impact, and add personality to your dining room.
