A dining room does not need hard backed wooden chairs to evoke a strong, masculine feeling. These rooms below, by Ciao Interiors, all show a rustic look using upholstered dining chairs. All three rooms feature nailheads which are a great detail to add weight and strength to a chair. The leather with nailhead is a great look in a dining room that is going for a masculine look, as are the muted, deep paisley prints in the second two images. The interesting shapes and unique inset (on the first image) make the chairs statement pieces in the room.
