The round chairs are very elegant and represent an indispensable piece of furniture to combine with circular tables. Nobody forbids you to use round chairs with rectangular or square tables, but the visual effect is certainly not the best. There are wooden tables of indefinite shapes that almost resemble the trunk or branch of a tree, but rounded enough to accommodate circular chairs. If you want to place cushions on this type of chair, you will find an almost infinite choice.
As we have already had the opportunity to suggest, in the kitchen it is always good to use removable. Or easily washable cushions (perhaps in the washing machine) in order to remedy any type of stain. Having said that, let’s see what kind of chair we can find in this environment.
There are the classic metal chairs which, like their more squared “sisters”, give a vintage atmosphere to the kitchen. Some models are very colorful, so you just need to find round chair cushions in the same shade or, better, in a complementary color to break up the chromatic monotony. If you like lace and designs such as flowers and fruit, take care to use cushions with these characteristics on chairs with more dull colors. And also pay attention to how you have furnished the rest of the kitchen, from the tablecloth to the curtains so as not to mix too many different subjects.
Some more modern chairs with a metal frame have the seat already padded. so you will have to opt for thinner round cushions that act more like a cover or avoid them. On the wooden or straw chairs, the round cushions will still have to follow the style and chromatic needs of the rest of the room. And you can also choose plain colors or simply quilted if you prefer not to be too daring.
IN THE LIVING ROOM
In the room where you welcome guests or watch television, round chairs can be more elegant, perhaps in Vienna straw: usually this type of chair is already beautiful as it is. But if you need to use round cushions it would be better to use models with soft colors such as those of shabby chic; on a decorative level. You can play on the richness of the ruffles or on the bows that you can create with the laces of the cushion itself so that your chair appears almost dressed in an elegant way. If you prefer a more sober style, choose round cushions without laces or with hidden elastic. In general, even if the round chairs in your living room are made of wood. It is never good to use too bright colors in a living room and the same goes for cushions.
IN THE EXTERNAL ENVIRONMENT
Do you have a nice big balcony or even a garden? Here, too, you can combine the right round chair cushions. For wrought iron chairs, very padded cushions will be needed to make the seat more comfortable (and, perhaps, the backrest too). If the chairs are very elaborate, simpler cushions with soft colors will be needed, perhaps recalling the green hues of the environment. In the case of even seats with rich mosaic-like decorations, using a cushion to cover everything is a real shame.
The situation changes for wicker and rattan chairs or armchairs. So fashionable today in the gardens: for this type of round chairs, you will not even need to stop the cushion with laces, as they will hold it perfectly without slipping. You can make a nice play of contrasts between the dark color of the seat and a nice light cushion, perhaps very simple and just quilted. If you have one of those egg-shaped swings that are on the cutting edge, a pillow is just the final cuddle to add.
The basic rule of garden chair cushions, round or not, is to use pastel colors that are in tune with the surrounding nature.
