    Each time I go into my doctor's office, I wonder why architects or decorators don't specify a nicely finished 1X4 board laid on the floor behind the chairs to keep the legs, and thus the back from going back and damaging the wall. The other solution would be a chair rail at back height.

    Why not take paint stir sticks (free!), paint them to match current baseboards and nail/glue them along 1/4 round/baseboards. They will keep chairs away from walls and no-one will ever notice.

  • In my house we just moved the table further out so that this would not happen. If that isn't possible, I would go with a chair rail, it would look very nice!

    You could swap the chairs against the wall for a padded bench,provided the bench's soft edge was the contact point with the wall.

    Lay a board on the floor next to the wall. LIke a 1 X 3 or 2 X 4. Paint or stain to closely match your flooring. It will act as a stop if the chair is pushed towards the wall and will not be very noticable.

    I'd suggest attaching a 1/2" x 4" piece of molding along that wall for protection. HD and Lowes have many decorative styles to choose from. Measure the length of your wall for the length of molding needed. Using a level mark a straight line on the wall where you want to attach the molding then position and attach the molding with a nail gun or finishing nails. Best of luck.
