How to choose the perfect chairs?

size and space

You should make sure that the chairs you choose are proportional to the size of the table and the space available in the room. Sometimes we choose a very large table and there is no room to put the chairs, so we end up choosing chairs that are too small. You must choose a table taking the chairs into account. In the previous Post: How to choose a dining table? We teach you how to choose a table correctly. We suggest you review it and then continue with this one.

As we were saying, people must be able to sit and stand comfortably without hindrance. The chairs need a free distanceand in their lateral approximately 50cm, and in the rear unos 60cm without obstacles so that the diner can get up from the table easily.

La most important measure What you should take into account in the armrest height, if the measurement from the floor to the bottom of the table is less than the measurement from the floor to the top of the armrest, the chair cannot be inserted under the table so the chair will be flush with the table without possibility more approximation. Keep this in mind because not all chairs are suitable for all tables and vice versa.

Comfort and maintenance

An upholstered chair is much spongier than a wooden one, most of us agree on that. But for some people, comfort may not only translate into comfort when sitting but also in the maintenance and cleaning of the chair in question. The choice of chair material is essential, the leatherette fabric  It is waterproof so cleaning is not complicated, however it is a cold fabric to the touch and less comfortable than a velvet for example. 

Color is also an influential factor. A polypie fabricl in white is easy to clean, however choosing a natural fabric such as cotton in white can be risky if we have children or animals at home.
The shape of the chair also influences. The armrests will provide you with extra comfort but also an added difficulty when taking measurements, as we mentioned in the previous point.
High chairs provide elegance but not necessarily comfort, since if the back of the chair covers up to the middle of the back it is more than enough.

Design and Versatility

The last thing to take into account is the design of the chairs, which must be in aesthetic harmony in both style, shape and color with the interior design of our dining room. We recommend that you take a look at the designs we have in our Kairo Catalog , so you can soak up inspiration. 
If you choose the aesthetics of your chairs correctly, you will be able to move them around in your dining room or living room without the overall decoration losing its aesthetics. In this way we find the versatility. Being able to place your chairs in other rooms of your house without fear of falling into disorganization, having the different elements of your decoration "speak to each other" is the key that we aim to achieve. Although you may need the advice of an experienced interior designer to achieve this. At Franco Furniture we can advise you on whatever you need. 
We cannot fail to mention that the quality of the chairs is almost more important than their appearance, since directly influences in this last. What's the point of choosing an incredible design if your chairs feel flimsy at first glance? Always invest in quality, trust the best manufacturers, in the short term you will get high-quality objects that everyone will appreciate, and in the long run they will last you a long time.
