Marcel Breuer Chairs

Often combining rattan seats with tubular steel frames, for a chrome chair look, these distinctive chairs are stylish and comfortable and easy to match with many different décor types. The neutral colors of the natural rattan and the classic, contemporary chrome mean that this style of Marcel Breuer chairs remains popular and in demand today.

A Thing of Beauty

Some of your chosen furniture and indeed your dining chairs can be so stylish in their design, that they could double up as pieces of modern art.

Whether you choose Cesca chairs, any other Marcel Breuer chairs, or a different style altogether, make sure your dining or lounge chairs are comfortable enough to sit in for several hours at a time.

Modern-day dining chairs often double up as occasion chairs or lounge chairs. Comfort and quality is therefore important to ensure that you get good value for money. The right chair goes beyond being somewhere to sit - it needs to be comfortable, but also beautiful. Design is important to many of us, and so chairs - like any other piece of furniture - needs to fit in with the rest of your style choice. These principles are often followed in offices and hospitality spaces.

Before choosing a chair, it is advisable to consider what you would want or need from your chair. How often will you use it? This might seem like a strange question, but not everyone uses their dining room every day. Sometimes it is only used for special occasions or seasonal holidays. Where will you use it? Often dining chairs are doubled up and used in other areas of your living space as extra seating. Does it fit and suit that space?

Many people see the kitchen as the heart of a home. However, the dining table could well have a bigger claim on that title; especially if is used every day. If you don’t want to cut your time at the table short, make sure you choose a comfortable, well-made chair to recline on.

Although you can get lots of furniture inspiration online, it may be worth taking some time to try out various chairs and styles in a showroom, even if you then decide to buy online.
