Traditional style evokes a sense of timelessness, often featuring intricate designs, wood carvings, and rich, warm colours. Consistency is key in traditional design - there's a sense of symmetry and order, seeking to create a calm, orderly space where everything just goes together.
Shape: Opt for chairs with classic designs, often featuring intricate carvings and details. Avoid overly modern or simplistic shapes.
Material: Hardwoods like oak, mahogany, or cherry are often used in traditional furniture. Consider chairs with detailed woodwork to match your traditional dining table.
Upholstery: Rich, warm tones are preferred. Fabrics like brocade, velvet, or chenille can add a touch of luxury and tradition.
Functionality: While traditional design values aesthetics, ensure that the chairs are also comfortable for prolonged seating and are built to last.
The traditional chairs often feature intrinsic designs and a more robust appearance, but you can also keep your dining chairs more minimal and opt for a more colourful fabric instead. While we don’t offer those online yet, there is a huge level of customisation on all of our Warwick fabrics - get in touch with us or come for a free design consultation in store.
Naco’s Choice: The Coorah Dining Chair with its blend of Australian Oak and classic Warwick fabrics, resonates with traditional charm. Depending on your interior, you can opt for fabric or leather (the latter creating a more luxurious feel to your space).
The Colba is also a classic that wins again and again because of its blend of Australian Oak and classic fabrics, and the fact that it pairs well with solid wood tables.
