Contrary to general belief, dining rooms don’t always look boring. A great way to avoid that look is by introducing color into the design. An easy option is to complement a simple table with a set of eye-catching dining chairs.

The Quo chair is a great example. It has a very sculptural and slender design but it remains comfortable thanks to its wide seat and supportive back. The metal base is slender but sturdy and the shell comes in many exciting colors that you can mix and match as you please. What a fun way to add character to this room!

An exposed metal frame gives the Bombom chair a really cool and modern look while the super-soft cushions make it extra cozy and comfortable. The contrast between the base and the shell is a strong one, one being slender while the other is bulky.

They compliment each other nicely and they’re in turn complemented by a series of beautiful colors that bring out the beauty in the design as a whole. This would make a nice accent chair for areas like the bedroom or living room but can also be used in other configurations.
