The holiday season and all the frenzy and the festivity of large family dinners is now firmly behind us. But the dining table and the kitchen still continue to be the hotspots that see families gather around each evening and share a few light moments. While trendy bar and counter stools in the kitchen allow you to create a wonderful breakfast nook, nothing can still replace the traditional dining table and the unique ambiance that it brings.
With modern homes adopting open floor plans that do away with walls, the line between the dining area and the kitchen might be blurred. But it still means you need a fabulous table along with a few sizzling chairs to truly complete that picture-perfect setting. There are always some perpetually popular chair options for the dining table like the classic Cherner Chair and the inimitable Tulip chairs from Eero Saarinen.
But today we turn our focus towards a trio of modern icons that are quickly becoming undeniable timeless classics. Elegant, exquisite and glamorous, they hold their own in pretty much any setting even while blending in effortlessly…
Enduring Design of the Anziano Chair
The Anziano Chair has roots that date back to the Greeks, who called them the Klismos chairs. With time and changing trends, the initial design has undergone several changes. Inheriting some of the futuristic style from the Mid-Century modern revolution in furniture design and embracing the diverse textures and finishes of modern decor, the current Anziano chair is indeed a classic that has withstood the test of time.

Sculptural in its form, the gentle curves of the back are coupled with a square silhouette to deliver a chair that looks great at pretty much any dining table. It can also be easily tucked away when not in use, making it an ergonomic addition to small homes.

Gorgeous Globus Chair
Desgined by Jesús Gasca in 1994, the curvy delight that is the Globus Chair is a perfect addition to sleek, contemporary dining rooms that exude sophistication and elegance. Available in molded beech, plywood or plastic, the chair adds a hint of visual contrast to modern homes dominated by clean and well-defined lines. The cut out in the back is another cool visual element that draws your attention, and you can always easily move one of these chairs from the dining room to the bedroom office to quickly fashion a home office nook.

Vanishing Act of the Ghost Chair!
You must have stumbled upon the exceptional Louis Ghost Chair several times before. And often, you would have simply looked beyond it, as you were too busy drooling about some other stunning decor piece in the room. That is precisely what makes the Ghost Chair such an exceptional piece that merges effortlessly with any theme or color scheme that you already have going in your house. Another great advantage of having these acrylic chairs is the visual spaciousness that they lend to a room.

Their transparent form ensures that your line of sight is unhindered, and you can pretty much choose a dining table in any material or finish to go along with these versatile chairs. Obviously a glass table with acrylic chairs is the most obvious choice, but the Ghost Chairs from Phillipe Starck work well even with a rustic table crafted from reclaimed wood!
