Eames and Others - The Black Dining Chair!


I'm a big fan of all things black when it comes to accenting a space, especially a dining space.  As such, I'm here today to share with you some of my favourites!



One of the benefits of using a black dining chair is the versatility.  The striking contrast of a molded Eames chair and rustic or rough hewn table fits into a number of styles and decor.  The above are great illustrations of this.  From the very slick modern to a blending of mid-century and industrial.  In all three of these the chair, (and this may simply be the case whenever you are putting an Eames chair in a space!) are the highlight.



They can blend as well, and very well at that.  The chrome legs add a splash of shine to these otherwise understated spaces, and some much needed contrast.  Here though, they don't steal the show, they merge into it.  They become part of the overall, and that's a very good thing.   




Black warmth?  It seems counter to general thoughts, but a less formal chair painted out in black really does warm a space.  Or at the least,  breaks the formality of a space, and makes it more accessible to your guests and families.


 Lastly, and really just because I love this dining area, a blend of all the others above.  Minimal and with strong contrast, but the round table speaks to informality, and warm chair cushions to comfort and east.  This space is well designed, but it's somewhere I want to eat and drink with friends.  

And would you look at those black chairs!
