Do you know how the term "diner chair" was born?

You've probably heard of diner chairs and diner furniture (yes, with one n) instead of dining furniture. These are two distinct terminologies that find their origin in the different styles and uses given to each furniture type. When we talk about dining chairs, we automatically think of any variety and chairs that can match classic furniture set in the dining room of a house or a restaurant. But diner chairs evoke a specific era and style, different from the described scenario.

The term "diner" applied to furniture refers to the style of the 1950s, a decade in which the chrome plating technique was very present on chairs, tables, and stools, which typically had their seats and backrests made of leather painted white, blue, or red. Thus, little by little, the term "diner" was used to refer to certain types of restaurants in which this decoration was typically found on the furniture. Originally, this type of restaurant was found on Route 66 in the United States. Still, later, the style of decoration was extended to informal restaurants and lunchrooms throughout the country. Today, the term "diner" is used for casual restaurants with these types of furnishings or cafeterias reminiscent of 1950s New York. New retro style furniture pieces and designs are produced and adapted to the antique and classic look that characterizes this type of decoration.
