    HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT SEATING FOR YOUR DINING TABLE 

    Transform your dining space with our simple tips to help you choose the perfect seating to complement your dining table. We’ve covered all of the essentials so that you can shop with confidence and elevate your dining space with ease.

    SIZE & SHAPE 

    Make sure that everyone is able to sit comfortably at your dining table by taking the proper measurements ahead of time before you decide on your seating. The first thing to check is that you will be able to place each chair under your table without touching the table legs, or the base of the tabletop. Then you will want to make sure that there is at least two inches of space between each chair so that there is plenty of room for everyone to sit comfortably at the table.

    TIMELESS DESIGN 

    By choosing statement furniture pieces with a timeless design you will have the freedom to evolve your style over the years without having to completely redecorate your space. When it comes to choosing timeless dining furniture it’s important to consider the materials, aesthetic and colour palette that you already have throughout your home. While also considering your lifestyle needs and how you use your dining space. For example, if you often have extra guests join for dinner parties at home, then a bench seat would be a great seating option to allow you to seat more guests comfortably.

    QUALITY CRAFTSMANSHIP 

    One of the key elements behind choosing timeless furniture is quality craftsmanship. At Totem Road each of our authentic furniture pieces are made consciously and sustainably, using only ethically-sourced materials with the highest quality craftsmanship. All of our dining tables can be styled effortlessly with the range of Thonet bentwood chairs which are made from European beech using traditional steam-bending methods. Every Thonet piece is chosen for its comfort, design excellence and sustainability, which has made their range synonymous with quality dining which blends form and functionality.
