There was no dining chair in the house when we moved in. Only one folding chair and a bench we recovered from the pile of old stuff belong to the previous tenant.
We take turn to eat at the dining table OR we just eat together on the floor. Being Malaysian, we prefer the latter.
Until I place a bid on a set of IKEA dining chairs on eBay. I won the whole set for GBP10 after intense bidding at the final minutes! We collected the dining chairs the next day in Bury, after I came back from my class.
