Polypropylene plastic dining chairs prove to be more popular with businesses or individuals that value durability and endurance in furnishings. Polypropylene plastic is typically used in microwavable plastics. This is because it has a high melting point and therefor proves to stand the test of time. This material is also easy to clean and abstains from easily staining or scratching, suitable for frequent use. The Replica Macey Dining chair is another great example of use of Polypropylene plastic, alike the Replica Form Chair.

Selecting the Ideal Dining Chair Quantity & Measurements

When considering purchasing your next dining chair, knowing the correct quantity for your space is essential. The standard dining table will usually seat 4-6 people, however depends on the chair size itself and the spatial limits. Additionally, nowadays we see oval and circular dining tables making a comeback which again effect the dining chair considerations one must take.

Knowing the dimensions of your intended tabletop will allow a rough idea of how many seats may fit in the space. However, knowing the space held between the dining tables legs is the essential and key preference. Having this information will certify the correct quantity of chairs that will comfortably fit around your chosen table. This is a determining factor, yet often overlooked, especially for chairs that obtain full or half arm rests. After knowing the space held between the tables legs, one may begin determining the ideal dining chair for their space.

The depth, width, total height and seat height are all equally vital considerations when purchasing your next dining chair. It is important to know, the measurements come from the widest, lengthiest, and tallest points of the chair. This ensures that there will be no room for error in your calculations, especially when considering chairs with arm rests. For example, the ever-popular Replica Wishbone Chair measures a seat width smaller than the full structured width (which includes the arm rests). Dividing the width measurements of your selected chair to the space held between your table’s legs will give you a more accurate idea of how many chairs can fit comfortably around your table.
