    As others said  chair rail is the molding to prevent chair dings on your walls. If you want moulding under the chair rail, in square or rectangle shales  that is picture frame molding.

    Baseboard or skirting boards.

    Chair rails or dado rails

    If they are fully panelled between it is called wainscoting.

    In the middle it's called chair rail. At the bottom it's called baseboard.

    The wooden piece of molding used to keep chairs off the wall is called a "chair rail" in the US and a "dado rail" in the UK, or more rarely a "surbase" but most people haven't got a scooby what that last one means.

    The "panels" on the lower half of the wall are an illusion if they're repeating rectangles unless your house is genuinely from the 1700s.  They made from frames of strips of beading cut to size and adhered to the wall between the chair rail and the baseboard (the molding running horizontally directly above the floor).  This makes it easy to make the rectangles fit the dimensions of the room.

    Baseboards or skirting boards may be composed of several strips of beading, one above the other to give a more elaborate profile from just a few basic shapes, or they can be wide, pre-molded pvc or other materials.
