Chairs are of many different types, shapes, sizes, styles, materials and colors and each has its own set of special characteristics that make it stand out from the rest. Leather dining room chairs form an interesting category. Furniture with leather upholstery is generally perceived as elegant and more formal compared to the fabric kind. Similarly, wood dining chairs are generally less casual-looking than those made of plastic. In this article we’re focusing on classic and contemporary dining chairs that use leather to look elegant and stylish.
