Whether you are designing for a commercial or home setting, it is especially important to have seating that complements the décor and reflects the character of each space.

In the past, social prominence determined what piece of furniture you sat upon in a sort of seating hierarchy. A stool was better than sitting on the floor, but a side chair had a back on it and was much more comfortable. The highest ranking in the room would sit in an arm chair since this type of chair had the comfort of both back and arm supports. This hierarchy continued in the design of the formal dining room where arm chairs are placed at each end of the table for the host and hostess, while side chairs were provided for the guests.
Now days, an arm chair is really a matter of personal preference. Arm chairs offer traditional classic elegance and are ideal when you want to create an atmosphere of reserved elegance. An arm chair also provides added comfort over conventional side chairs. Armed dining chairs can also be more convenient for the elderly, as they can use the arms to aid in raising or lowering themselves in the chair. These durable, wrought iron chairs also work with many styles of dining tables. Just be sure that if you decide on an armed dining chair, that the arms of the chairs are low enough to slide beneath the table without bumping into it.
