When furnishing your dining room, it’s easy to pay all your attention to a beautiful dining table where you can all enjoy a meal and a drink. But don't forget the dining chairs! With matching dining chairs, you really dot the i's and cross the t's, finally completing that dream picture.

But what should you pay attention to when you’re going to buy dining chairs? To help you, we’ve listed a handful of useful tips so you can fully focus on uniting your dining table with a set of beautiful dining chairs.

First of all, keep a close eye on the dimensions of the table and chairs of your interest. For example, a dining chair with armrests is often slightly wider than a simpler one without armrests. We advise you to reserve about 10 to 15 cm of space between the seats. Are you curious how many chairs will fit at your table? Read our extensive blog about the number of chairs at a dining table. This way you can make a targeted purchase, ensuring you don’t buy too few or too many chairs.


The colour of your new dining chairs largely determines the appearance of your dining room. If you decide to buy a dining chair at Table du Sud, then you have a lot of freedom when it comes to the colour. We have dozens of options in store for you, which means there’s always a colour that’s a perfect match.


Make sure that the colour matches the colour of your dining table and the rest of the interior. It's nice if your dining chairs stand out, but they must of course fit into your ensemble, as well as fit your living style. By the way, have you thought of choosing different colours? Dining chairs in all different colours or, for example, 3 grey and 3 blue chairs. The possibilities are endless!


In addition, light plays a major role in the world of colours. Will you place your dining chairs in a room where (a lot of) sunlight has free rein? Then you have the chance that relatively dark chairs suddenly look a lot lighter. Keep this in mind if you are going to cut the cord.



There’s a lot to choose from when it comes to the material of your dining chairs. Metal or wooden legs? And how about the upholstery? You have the option of opting for leather, fabric, or something in between. In short, there are a lot of options!


When choosing the material for your upholstery, be sure to consider who’s regularly using the chairs. Do you have children and/or a dog or cat that regularly jumps on one without being asked? Then it might be smart to choose material that is easy to clean!

Seat depth

Most chairs have the same seat depth, which is about 40 cm. However, it’s still smart to check this before buying your chairs, especially if your dining table has a deviant height. We advise you to ensure your new chairs match well with your table, as this prevents you from sitting too low or too high. 

Dining chairs from Table du Sud

At Table du Sud we focus on providing customisation, which goes for our dining chairs as well. They are available in different materials, which leaves you with a ton of options. Why not visit one of our showrooms to get some advice? With the help of some colour samples, our employees will show you all the possibilities! Tip: did you know that we also sell dining sofas? Beautiful, too!
