From muted blush to vibrant cardinal, a red upholstered dining chair can be subtle or dramatic. A lovely mauve chair that has an exposed frame and plush fabric delivers a soft, romantic touch of color to a neutral beige or gray dining set, while scarlet, cinnabar and lipstick red upholstered dining chairs pop against dark or light walls and furniture.
When shopping for red upholstered dining chairs, keep place settings and seating in mind. When arranged with a round table, an armless red upholstered dining chair set gives guests more personal space. Rectangular surfaces give diners a bit more elbow room, so armchairs fit nicely in these layouts.
