Thread Starter 
Okay, so as to stop us totally hijacking SoCal's man-den thread, let's do dining room chairs here.

1st priority: comfort or design?

From that other thread, a few classics and a Rambo special

The construction of the Wegner Round Chair (aka "The Chair") is something that you could probably appreciate

It isn't furniture porn but at least you could sit in it for more than 20 minutes without your ass going numb.

I had these exact chairs 7 or 8 years ago when I furnished my first place in NYC. Got them 2nd hand with a whole bunch of other stuff people were selling for nothing.

In all seriousness, are you speaking from experience, i.e. have you sat in a Cherner or Wegner round chair? I'm curious. We have Cherners at home and comfort is just fine. For some reason, it seems like American asses have gotten used to delicately padded areas only. A chair is not a couch.

Brushed, no arms.

We have 2 Cherners as well but that's at more of a kitchen nook table though we have no nook.

I've sat in a Cherner and some similarly styled knockoffs of the Wegner chairs. I found them all to be uncomfortable for extended periods of sitting (over 30 - 45 minutes). I thought the Cherner's were way too light weight and flimsy "feeling". The Wegner style chairs have absolutely no support. Just my personal preference for something that I can sit back in and be comfortable. Upper back support and a cushioned seat are things that I'd look for in a chair. Obviously, there are more stylish examples of the L-style chair. That was the first image that came up in my Google search for "dining room chair".

I think I saw that light fixture in the DWR website. Over 60k!

We have a dozen of these: People say they are comfortable, and they are. Surprisingly so. They still annoy me.

I've never liked these, even though they do look like they'd be comfortable. Too much visual bulk.

We have some Eames (Modernica) fiberglass chairs for our dining table, but these are my ideal:

I find the Wegner chairs beautiful, but really uncomfortable, because the chair cuts into my back in a bad place. Same with the Cherners. The Wegner shell chair on the other hand is the bee's knees, but it isn't a dining chair.

Chairs are pretty personal things, so not everyone will find the same chair equally comfortable or uncomfortable. For example, tall people will like different chairs than short people.
