Whether cosied up to create an impromptu reading nook, hard at work at your desk, or pulling overtime as a relaxed nightstand, your dining chairs are primed and ready to become your home’s ultimate furniture multi-taskers. We take a look at just a few of the creative uses for some of our favourite dining chair designs.
The “Lose Yourself In A Book”: Feather Dining Chair
Avid readers rejoice. The ability to explore different worlds from inside the pages of a book is one of life’s great pleasures. But, in order to experience that full immersion, one must first be without distraction – meaning completely comfortable. Enter our story’s main protagonist: the Feather Dining Chair. Offering deliciously airy comfort from which to enjoy your evening meal, we think that Feather rather comes into its own when teamed with a stylish reading lamp, a well-positioned footstool, and a fully-stocked bookcase, forming a reading nook to delight any devoted bibliophile.
The understated design of Feather’s simple timber frame belies its lavish cushioning, which comes courtesy of the feather-filled pillows at its seat and back. Although attached, both cushions give the appearance of sitting separately to the frame, underscoring Feather’s casual good looks. Not one to brag about its many attributes, Feather comes finished in coolly classic linen, subtle tones of velvet or invitingly weathered hides. Curl up with a leather-bound classic and let the day pass you by.
The Bedtime Companion: Mimi Chair
A truly restful bedroom requires décor that is both tasteful and practical, with muted tones and subtle lighting setting the tone for a good night’s sleep. Modelled on a classic 1940s French dining chair design, the Mimi range of wooden dining chairs offer a full range of classic seating that work perfectly for your home, whether you’re dishing up at the table, or snuggling down in bed.
An elegant spot to rest your book, bedside lamp or (whisper it) alarm clock, Mimi’s gently tapering legs come in tasteful black or subtle weathered oak finish, while her gracefully supportive flared back and comfortably padded seat are beautifully upholstered to suit your decorative style. Choose the understated simplicity of linen, the durable luxury of leather, or velvet’s tactile softness; whatever your choice, we can guarantee that the Mimi Chair wears it well.
The Glamorous Assistant: Mimi Quilt With Arms
Meet Mimi’s grown-up, and, dare we say it, glitzier big sister. The Mimi Quilt comes with or without arms, but to create high glamour in the dressing room, we say the arms have it. The plushest perch from which to paint your face, style your hair or spritz your signature scent, Mimi Quilt With Arms is as tastefully groomed as its owner.
Sharing the original Mimi’s chic French DNA, this version – with its shapely tapering legs, brass stud detailing, and sumptuous quilted seat cushioning – benefits from the addition of open, gently curved arms that sit at just the right height to support, without ever feeling hemmed in. From our expertly crafted range of oak dining chairs, Mimi Quilt is also available in a classic black finish, with a whole host of upholstery choices that includes the ever-stylish, vintage-inspired Buck’dN Brok’n leather. It’s time to vamp it up.
The Office Essential: Lannister Dining Chair
When it comes to choosing a chair that will see you comfortably right through the nine-to-five and beyond, it can be tricky to find the right candidate for the role. Happily, we think that our Lannister Dining Chair’s executive credentials ensure that it is more than qualified to take you from dining table to desk. Another branch of our family of oak dining chairs, Lannister’s stylishly subtle tuck arms offer outstanding support, while its compact dimensions ensure that it is an excellent team player.
The hardest choice for any decorative decision-maker will be choosing from Lannister’s extensive upholstery menu. Crisp linen adds a touch of softness to your home office, while rich velvet makes filing reports feel just a little fancier. Alternatively, add value with a full spectrum of leathers from polished to weathered. Hard at work, or hardly working – you’re always comfortably appointed.
The Music Lover: Retro Dining Chair
From spinning plates to spinning tunes, Retro is the dining chair that loves to entertain. With its clean masculine lines, our Retro Dining Chair is a refined nook from which to appreciate a well-honed tune, whether from your collection of classic vinyl, or a digital music library.
One of our most handsome leather dining chairs, Retro’s curved seat is liberally padded, while its contemporary linear shape immediately brings to mind the sports-chic styling that was so ubiquitous throughout the 1970s. Whether finished in fine fabric or black-leather-clad for a timeless appeal, this casual yet sophisticated chair favours enduring style over fleeting fashion. It’s time to get those cans on, turn up the amp and kick back.
