When it comes to the debate of dining chairs with or without arms, Swee argues that while dining chairs with arms will make more of a statement in a large dining space, there are alternatives for achieving a similar look within a smaller space. “If space is restrictive, then consider using dining chairs without arms but having the two end chairs with arms as a point of interest,” Swee says.
As a designer, Swee says that the most important part of styling your home is having fun, being creative, and not being scared to play around. “It’s important that a house works on a functional and aesthetic level while reflecting the personality of its owners,” Swee says. “ At the end of the day, your home is your sanctuary, so it needs to be a nurturing space that captures who you are,” she adds.
