Chairs shouldn't be rickety or wobble. In case the chair has a padded seat, the corners should be reinforced with screwed-in (not glued) corner blocks. Padded seats should be removable so the cover can be changed. Fabric covered chairs may not be appealing if you have small children who are messy eaters. Leather is a great option for quick cleanup, as is stain resistant microfiber upholstery. Slip covers on Parson's chairs are another easily cleaned option for the dining area.
Dining room furniture is commonly bought from five piece sets. Occasionally retailers will run promotions including two arm chairs as well. You should purchase at least two more chairs than you think you will need. Holiday entertaining and family gatherings can send you scrambling for seating to accommodate everyone. If you choose the extra chairs first you can make certain that they can fit with the table. The extra chairs can always be used as accents chairs in other rooms when you are not entertaining.
