Modern dining pieces have become the latest trend in dining room furniture.  From a design perspective, working with low profile chairs opens up the room greatly.  Larger chairs can compete with decor, however, with low profile chairs, decor and light fixtures present a beautiful focal point.  In addition, low profile dining chairs create a more open space for both large and small dining spaces.  We have two projects right now that we felt that if we created a space with a chair that is low profile, we can create a focal point that would otherwise by covered up by a larger chair, such as an art piece in the room or an antique sideboard.  I think the overall look, creates a fresh and clean space.
