Before you start your search for the perfect dining chair on our website, it’s smart to identify exactly what it is that you expect from your new chairs. For example, do you want your chair to be partially made of wood or steel? Do you prefer a soft dining chair or one with a slightly harder seating? And what about the colour? Dark or light? If you've already answered these and other questions about your chair's features, then you've come a long way!


Step 1: the design

Your new dining chair has to match well with both your dining table and the rest of the interior and, of course, you also have to like it! So it can be quite difficult to choose a dining chair in a short time span. Fortunately, we have dozens of chairs in store for you, each with its own design and many options when it comes to upholstery.


During orientation, try to find out what it is that you expect from a new chair. For example, do you want an armrest or not? Do you prefer a steel or wooden frame? Wheels under your chair or normal legs? These are the kind of questions you need to ask yourself if you’re considering a new chair. Check out our dining chairs to see our full product arrangement. After you have selected your seat, you’ll get the opportunity to determine all the details. To do so, click on the “Configure yourself” button. Tip: do you have a new dining table and don’t know how many chairs will fit? Read our blog about the number of seats at the table.


Step 2: the material
We have many different materials in store for you. Are you going for a slightly rougher fabric or do you prefer a soft one? It’s good to know that the pictured chairs merely give an indication of the possibilities. The design itself is set, but the rest is entirely up to you! Regarding the upholstery of your new dining chair, you have dozens of options. That means there’s always a combination available that suits your interior! Tip: we also have different types of leather to cover the chairs with. A number of materials are collected on our materials chart, with which you can see what suits you from the comfort of your own home.

Step 3: the colour

Your chosen material forms the basis of your new dining chair. But did you know that your material is available in many different colours? That means you still have to make an important decision in terms of upholstery. When choosing a colour, keep in mind that there must be a match with the rest of your interior. In addition, it is advised to take a close look at the lighting in your house. Will you place your chairs in a room where sunlight has free play, or is it relatively dark? Sunlight plays a big role in how colours appear. For instance, a dark variant of grey can look very light in a well-lit kitchen.


Step 4: the legs

After you've chosen the upholstery, it's time to get to grips with the legs. Here, too, you’re free to add nuances that match your taste. Think, for example, of the material of the legs and/or the colour. What you can adjust/what the options are differs per chair. Let all of them pass in review, so you get a good idea of ​​what’s possible and which chair meets your list of demands!

Step 5: possible assembly

Some seats need to be assembled. If this is the case, we offer to do this for you. Of course, you can decide to do it yourself if you want to. The Ikata dining chair is an example of a chair that you can have assembled.


Just be patient and sit down!
Once you've placed your order, we'll get to work immediately. You’ll find the relevant current delivery times on the page of your specific dining chair. These delivery times are adjusted daily so you always know what exactly to expect. Also looking for other seating furniture? Then it's good to know that we have those for you, too. Take a look at our lounge chairs, barstools and garden chairs.
