For simple modification look into pairing a narrow chair rail with two interesting moldings, one top and one at the bottom. By implementing three pieces of pre-shaped wood you can actually come up with complex chair rail without having to do your own routing.
Likewise a selection of a subtle, pale tint, tone or shade of the primary color of the wall may produce a beautiful impression when the same color is picked up by accents in the room. Thus a medium blue wall might have a smooth, soft gray-blue chair rail, with corresponding gray-blue cushions on the sofa and runners on the incidental table.
These fun-loving chairs are quite popular and easy to make. If you enjoy sewing, this is a 'business idea' that might appeal to you. The profits are quite good too; these chairs are just a big bag full of stuffing or beans. The popular filling these days is polystyrene pellets because they are lightweight. So there isn't a lot of sewing required, you don't even need to put a zipper on it, unless you want to.
Color and design could bring yet an additional dimension to ones own chair molding. Chair molding is frequently painted white against a contrasting background, or are colored a light shade against a white or ecru colored background. In some examples, though, a deep, bold color can easily spark up the individuality of a room.
Here are a couple chair ideas. Go exploring your own town and see where you can find discarded wooden window blinds. Cut them to about three feet wide stain and generously clear-coat them. You'll need to cut out a support form which you should find easily enough on the web by searching for 'window blind chair'. Cheap plywood will do the job. Cut the two support forms and glue/nail it all in place. After a few cracks at it you'll end up being able to build wonderfully cool chairs that cost next to nothing and can easily be sold for $100.00. The second is simply an old steel drum. These can be found anywhere for free and only need a good cleaning and some clear coat finish. Take a look at the photo. You only need to make a good cut, cover the edge with rubber edging and add a cheap cushion and some $10.00 legs. Again - this should sell for $100.00 easy.
The first thing that you will notice when you own one of these chairs is that they tend to collect dust and dirt. The wicker just being the nature of the material has a lot of little cracks and surface areas that dirt and dust can collect. This can become a large problem because even inside these chairs can start to look dirty and grimy really quickly with normal usage. Especially on everyone's country style favorite color that has been a number one seller; white. It is just not a good idea to have wicker dining room chairs. Along with this fact, leads directly into another problem with maintenance of these chairs. If they are close or in the kitchen or nook off of the kitchen they tend to collect any grease that may splatter up in the air from cooking. This mixed with dust and grime really can cause this kind of furniture to be hard to clean.
