Six of the best white dining chairs
March 19, 2010 at 10:12 am 1
We don't play favourites at Danetti. We love all our furniture equally, and every piece is selected for its style and usefulness. But because we're sliding towards the warmer months and want to lighten and brighten our homes, we're especially keen on white dining chairs right now. They are great for using in a contemporary dining room or kitchen diner and can look just as good in a minimalist, monochrome interior as they can in a funky, bright interior. We've selected six white dining chairs that we think you'll like. Which is your favourite? Ours is ... no, we can't pick one.
Danetti white leather dining chair, Akia

Danetti white leather dining chair, Akia

1. The Akia is a really elegant contemporary dining chair from Italy. It comes with either a chrome or aluminium frame and upholstery in faux or genuine split leather in a range of colours, including white. The subtle cushioning and relatively high back rest make it comfortable, and the horizontal stitching on the leather-work adds a nice bit of detail to this otherwise simple design. The chair is stackable, which means you can neatly store these chairs away when you don't have guests, which we know is always handy. We think it'd work well in most home dining rooms, but especially those which are modern but not too minimalist. A stunning choice, we think! VIEW FULL DETAILS

2. Looking for some funky curved seating to make an impact in your dining space, then look no further than the Annes dining chair. With a well cushioned seat and back rest the Annes chair is not only comfortable for sitting, but also looks fabulous, especially with the thin chrome frame that wraps round the entire piece. Choose from a range of faux leather and genuine leather finishes to complement the highly polished chrome frame. VIEW FULL DETAILS

Danetti white dining chair, Delilah

3. The Delilah is a stylish and super-funky geometric leather dining chair, made in Italy. It comes with a choice of chrome or lacquered aluminium finish frame and with a wide modern seat back and arms finished in a soft split leather or faux leather, which comes in a variety of colours. This contemporary piece of seating would look most at home in a contemporary living environment, probably teamed with a glass table. Because of the clean cut lines of this piece, we think it would work especially well in a kitchen diner. VIEW FULL DETAILS

4. This seriously stylish dining chair comes in a milky white or several other eye-popping colours like orange and fuchsia. We think it's a real design statement, which makes it all the more amazing that it's reasonably priced. It's made from polypropylene and is even suitable for outdoor use. Multi-purpose furniture, that's what we like! VIEW FULL DETAILS

Danetti white dining chair, Emo

5. The ultimate in simplicity this one. Great for those on a budget or people who just want a minimalist and unfussy dining chair. The Emo is an all-polymer chair, which means there are no screws, joints or stress points. It's ergonomic with superior comfort and lumbar support, and can be stacked up to 10 high. It's ideal for both interior and exterior use. VIEW FULL DETAILS

Danetti white leather dining chair, Magi

Danetti white leather dining chair, Magi

6. We love the Magi dining chair because it confuses us. It's traditional in form yet modern in materials and design. The Magi armchair looks stunning both with the Magi dining table or as a single statement chair. The chair comes with a satin-finish stainless steel, black or white lacquered metal frame, and with a seat in leather, eco-leather or fabric. Very few chairs have the poise and elegance that perfectly marries the traditional with the modern and this one does. A great investment buy. VIEW FULL DETAILS

Buying Guides, Dining Chairs
Choosing a dining room chair: the Danetti guide
March 15, 2010 at 2:22 pm 0
Choosing dining room chairs can be a tricky business. Here at Danetti, we want to help you find something that is both stylish and functional. You need dining chairs which are comfortable, hard-wearing, attractive, and that co-ordinate with the rest of your furniture and your interior style. If you have a small home then you may also want your dining chairs to be stackable. To make sure you don't make a purchasing faux pas, follow our 10 point guide to choosing the best chairs for your dining space: 1. Think about the style. If you have a contemporary home interior then you need chairs that are going to fit in. Plain, minimalist designs, perhaps with chrome and leather, will work well in a contemporary setting. Cutting edge design will make your home seem more expensive.

2. Think about the material. Just in case the red wine bottle spills, it is best to have dining chairs that are serviceable. Wooden or plastic dining chairs are great because they can simply be wiped clean and will not mark. Leather or faux leather dining chairs are also very hard-wearing, and can be cleaned with special products. 3. How many chairs do you need? If you have a small dining room table then you may just want two or four dining chairs to go around it. In this case, you can afford to make a bit of a statement with bold design and striking colour. However, if you have a very large dining room table then you will need to buy perhaps 10 or 12 dining room chairs, and you may want to keep the look simple and uncluttered by choosing a minimalist style of chair. 4. Who will be using them? If you are a young couple and you want dining chairs for your friends when they come for dinner parties, then the dining chairs can be very design-led and your decision mainly based on how the chairs look. If you expect to have older guests who need a comfortable seat, then you may want to buy chairs with arm rests and high back, which are great for support.

5. What dining table do you have? Mis-matching tables and chairs can really ruin the look of your dining area. You need to make sure that the seats are a good height for sitting at the table, and that the materials are matching or complimentary. A glass and chrome table, for example, can look very harmonious with a leather and chrome dining chair. Ask Danetti if you want advice and suggestions about which chairs go well with which tables. We'll be happy to help. 6. Are you planning on open-plan living? If you're creating a kitchen-dining or a living-room-dining space, then you will need to take into account the furniture you have in the other parts of the room. What colour and style is your kitchen? What material is your sofa made from, what is the flooring like? At Danetti we have such a huge range of dining chairs that you're sure to find something that will fit in. 7. Plan your budget. Quality dining chairs can be a good investment - the last thing you want is for the chairs to become wobbly or unstable for people to sit on. We normally recommend that you spend at least £50 per chair, and often the more you pay, the more you get, in terms of design and quality. Remember at Danetti there is a 2-year guarantee on all products so  you know you are buying furniture that will last, whatever your budget. 8. Do you need more space? Stackable dining chairs are a great option for people living in small homes, because the chairs can be neatly stacked in the dining room, or in another room, until you have guests to stay. For many people only 2, 3 or 4 chairs are needed regularly and the others only now and then.

Danetti's dining chairs come in many colours

9. What colour do you fancy? Danetti's dining chairs come in a huge variety of colours - many styles are available in red, green, blue, purple, orange, and tens of other colours, plus the popular black, white and brown. You can pick your dining chair colour to co-ordinate with your soft furnishings, or even to provide a 'pop' of accent colour in a very plain and minimalist scheme. 10. Do you need the chairs to be multi-purpose? If you buy dining chairs in neutral colours, or colours that tone in with the rest of your home, then you can easily use them in hallways, bedrooms, even studies, when you're not using them at the table. This can both save you money and mean that you don't have an excess of furniture clogging up your home.

We hope this guide has been helpful. Now you have your checklist, take a look at Danetti's full range of dining chairs ...
