If your dining room has one main color that dominates the space, instead of matching your dining chairs to that color, you may want to go the opposite route and opt for black and white. The idea is to throw in touches of contrast. If you pick just any color, then there is the danger of clashing. But since black and white are neutral, you know that this will not be a problem.

Outdoor wicker furniture adds a contemporary style to your backyard deck or patio. To keep your wicker furniture looking like new, take a little time to schedule a regular clean-up time. Wicker furniture can be cleaned by using the soft brush of a vacuum along with a damp cloth slightly dipped into detergent and water. Make sure though that your wicker is reed or resin wicker and not paper wicker which can be damaged if wet. Of course, if it’s solely used for outdoor furniture, then it needs to be reed wicker.

If the chairs are very light, there is a possibility that they could blow over on a windy day.

The simple elegance of a country or cottage style black wood dining room chair is a classic look that can be both traditional and contemporary given the dining room table design. These chairs can also fit nicely in a small kitchen area or breakfast nook. For added comfort, you may want to add a set of chair cushions if you plan on sitting down at the table for long periods of time.

Some people simply don’t like to use black in their decor because it is too somber.
Adding contemporary wood chairs to your dining room may be just what you need to give new life to an old look. Modern dining room chairs are sleek, durable, functional, comfortable and come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and materials. Some contemporary chairs take into account a certain traditional quality that could fit nicely at your dining room table or at grandma’s, while other designs look like they belong in a museum of modern art rather than at the dinner table.
