What type of fabric is best for dining chairs?
To pick a fabric for dining room chairs, one should consider durable, easy to maintain or stain-resistant materials. While choosing a fabric is a personal choice, the most commonly preferred upholstery materials include cotton and linen — both are prone to staining, however — as well as leather and synthetic fabrics such as polyester.
