The leather is a material that is an ideal choice for the rustic dining room as it goes so well with reclaimed wood furniture. As a natural material, it exudes warmth as well as more than a hint of the practical, something we know our customers look for. With this in mind, we take a look at three rustic dining room landscapes and how leather dining chairs make the perfect partners to a reclaimed wood dining table.
Rustic charm with the Beam Collection
If you love the boxiness of the rustic style, an extendable rustic dining table must surely hold all the charm it needs. The temptation is to match the chunkiness of the table with dining chairs with equally generous proportions and statement.
But this rustic landscape can become too boxy which is why choosing a more streamlined leather dining chair is the perfect foil. Sometimes, doing the opposite gets the best results and so the slightly bucket-style of the Cerato leather dining chairs with turned, spindle leg is the perfect fusion of refinement and the rustic.
Retain the rustic look by opting for the Beam sideboard, an item from the same range as the beautiful dining table. It will bring symmetry to the dining room without the ‘show home’ characterless look.
Rustic elegance with a hint of the industrial style
If ever there were two styles that effortlessly fused together it is rustic and industrial. In many ways, both are similar, taking the natural and basic components of their landscapes – the rural and the industrial – and using them in their best light within the home.
A beautiful rustic dining table, complete with dining bench and leather dining chairs bordering on the industrial look is a brilliant piece for the dining room. This table from the Chelwood Collection would look stunning with the Chelwood reclaimed sideboard and dresser, giving a refined appearance to the rustic dining room.
Extendable rustic dining table for ample dining space
There is a balance that needs striking between giving diners plenty of space at the table but also not swapping the dining room floor space. When you need to ‘go large’ with the dining table, an extendable one is a perfect choice.
A bit like the extendable Kensal table, a roomy 6-seater dining table that offers plenty of elbow room whether you have six or more people crammed around it. Again, we opted for leather dining chairs with a clear industrial style twist to them, but you could go for faux leather dining chairs – both are a great way not to swamp the space with more chair than elbow room.
Balancing the dining room, we used the slimline console table as an open shelving unit for some well-chosen accessories, as well as beautifully detailed and versatile cabinet dresser from the same range. This just pulls the space together, connecting the dots between the table and supporting furniture.
The rustic furniture style does have an edge to it that essential means being overly ‘matchy-matchy’ isn’t necessary but you do want cohesion within the room. Leather dining chairs bring the note of change to the room’s tempo. To do this, you need items that have purpose and style, both of which you get with leather dining chairs. Which would be your choice?
