When it comes to the furniture in your dining room, chairs can sometimes end up being an afterthought, especially if you’ve already put so much thought into the perfect table, chandelier, and storage solutions. But the right dining chairs can have a major impact on the vibe of your entire space, adding the ideal complement or contrast to the rest of your furniture — especially when you go the custom route.
From upholstery color, pattern, and texture to leg style and finish, custom dining chairs offer a world of opportunity to stretch outside of your comfort zone and create a one-of-a-kind piece that’s tailored to your home. What’s more, bolder details — like a playful pattern or an unexpected material — can be less intimidating when presented in a smaller package, like a dining chair.
If you’re not sure where to start, Havenly’s team of interior designers is, as always, here to help. Keep scrolling to shop the six custom dining chairs we’re obsessing over this season, and remember: each product comes in hundreds of different fabrics, leg styles, and more.
