Tip Of The Week: Think Beyond The Dining Chair

Interior Design Guide

Jenna Bush dining room

There’s a lot to think about when you’re creating the perfect dining area — there’s the rug, the lighting, not to mention, the table.  That’s a lot of moving pieces. But when it comes time to choose the chairs for your space, our designers suggest “thinking beyond the traditional dining chair and looking at an upholstered bench or settee.” Not only is it comfortable, but it’s the perfect way to elevate the look of your dining room to sophisticated heights. It’s also often the perfect solution for small spaces. For example, when we designed a small apartment in New York City, a banquette was the perfect way to stylishly squeeze in a little more seating. See below for some dinner room settee inspiration and some of our favorite finds. Pictured: the dining room in Jenna Bush Hager’s beach house.
