I’m having a moment with skirted dining chairs. I just think they are the perfect companion with a chunky wood table. I adore that they are both casual and tailored. Since they have a softer, feminine edge to them, I really like them mixed in with more masculine elements. Wood, metal, and modern chairs are great companions.
Slipcovered versions can be removed and washed. Doesn’t get much more practical than that!
I really like this look: Skirted arm chairs on the end of the table, and different chairs used in the middle. The skirt is a great application here, because you don’t have two different leg types competing. (Three if you count the table legs!)
