If you’re going for an airy, lighter space, simple wooden dining chairs with clean lines and open backs might suit, and this would also work beautifully for rooms that are smaller.
On the other hand, if you plan to use your dining room for socialising, or even to work, then upholstered dining chairs may be more comfortable to sit in for longer periods of time.
Fabric chairs: cosy and allows you to play with texture and print, but cleaning stains and such may be a concern. Great for adding warmth to your dining room.
Leather chairs: sleek classics, durable and easy to clean. Can be used to bring a formal look, especially designs with higher backs.
Chrome or metal chairs: very modern and typically more lightweight, in case you need to stow them away. Contemporary and chic, they help to bounce light around for an airy feel.

The average dining chair is about 18 - 20 inches across, though that changes if the chairs have arms. When assessing how many chairs can fit around a table, leave six inches between each chair. Also leave 36 inches between the chair and the wall or any other furniture in the dining room, so people can easily push their chair back.
