Give your dining room a refined edge with these sleek, steel-framed chairs

It might not be the first thing you think of when designing your dining room, but choosing the right chairs to sit around a dining table can really make or break the space. If you opt for something too bulky, it will be all that anyone notices. A flimsy style, on the other hand, will almost certainly lead to a lot of uncomfortable shifting.

In pursuit of the perfect balance, we have found some of the best dining chairs around. With their refined, tubular legs and sculptural construction, these steel-framed chairs are not only sophisticated in a subtle, understated way but will prove practical and comfortable for any drawn-out dinners or long lunches.
