If you are looking to give your home an instant update, one of the quickest and easiest ways is by introducing a new chair or chairs.
Maybe you have a tired corner of one room lacking a focal point, or in need of a pop of colour? A trendy chair could be the answer. Or maybe your old dining table could benefit from an update? Instead of splurging on a completely new dining set, consider simply swapping your chairs for new ones to give your dining area a whole new look.
That’s exactly what we did recently in collaboration with Lakeland Furniture. A leading online destination for chair furniture, they offer a fantastic array of chair designs and styles at affordable prices.
Now our oak dining table has seen better days – it is about ten years old and a bit battered around the edges – but I have happy memories of the kids growing up around it; painting and drawing on it, building Lego and our younger two learning to feed themselves at this table! By getting rid of the original high backed chairs with faux brown leather seats and replacing them with some snazzy new Bergen Chairs from Lakeland Furniture has really given the dining space in our conservatory a different look and feel. We opted for a mix and match theme, with two black and two biscuit chairs to give a more informal look. But as well as neutral seat colours, you can opt for bright and bold ones.
Part of their Nordic range, which comes in a wide variety of colours and leg styles (choose from 12 seat colours, 2 seat styles and 8 leg styles), these versatile Bergen chairs are a brand new design, only introduced in January this year. Reminiscent of the Eames style classic dining chairs, but with a twist thanks to those stylish black frames attached to mid-century modern style legs, you can choose a beech leg finish (like ours) or walnut.
At a comfortable fixed height, the chairs do need a little bit of assembly as they arrive boxed with their seats unattached from the legs and frames, but it really is a quick job to screw them together – simples.
Great value for money, they can be mixed and matched around any style dining table and with a sleekly contoured ABS plastic seat they are strong, supportive and comfy – and of course, easy to wipe clean.
Now, what’s really great is that Lakeland Furniture are giving away a pair of Bergen chairs to a #tidylife reader in a choice of colours (subject to availability).
