Contemporary chairs can be wild or mild. Mostly made of wood, plastic or metal, the designs can resemble something very stark and primitive, or something glitzy and high tech that looks like it just landed from outer space. Seats can be plump with lots of cushioning or flat with no padding at all. Legs can be curved shiny rods of chrome or straight, sculpted wood in a Parson`s mode.
Metals, cane or rattan, and plastics have their place, particularly for outdoor and patio furniture. However, none of these has the look of high quality solid wood furniture. For accent pieces, yes, metals and even ceramics and glass can look great. A smoked glass top on a coffee table can be very attractive in the correct setting, but for a main dining table you cannot beat solid wood.
