We believe home design should be stylish and distinctive. The spindle back of a Windsor-style oak dining chair or the velvet upholstery on a streamlined frame are elements that help elevate a space, making it personalized to you. Our well-designed and thoughtfully-curated dining room chairs collection at Lulu and Georgia is perfect for your dining room, offering elevated style and individual personality.
Seating is usually one of the last elements you choose to furnish your dining room, but it is essential in defining the space's look, style, and comfort. Dining chairs can be used as accent pieces that exhibit contrasting looks and textures or blend seamlessly into the surrounding decor. You can even mix and match the styles of the chairs for a signature look.
Not sure where to start when shopping for kitchen and dining room chairs for your home? Don't worry; we have you covered. Check out a few tips below.
Shopping for Dining Room Chairs
Dining rooms and kitchens come in many sizes, shapes, and styles. You may be working with a cozy breakfast nook, an open-concept living and dining space, or a grand dining room—featuring a statement-making dining table—used only for special occasions. Having a home with a dining room reserved for entertaining and gathered meals allows you to play with decor and create a distinct ambiance in that space. A chic dinette offers the opportunity to style a versatile dining set that folds functionally into your everyday routines.
When shopping for dining room chairs, it can be helpful to begin by thinking about the space as a whole, picturing it in use. Will these chairs be used regularly, or are they saved for special occasions? Do you want a dining room chair to be fully upholstered for a modern touch or display its wooden frame for its rustic, practical quality? We're here to help with tips and inspiration so that you can purchase dining chairs that effortlessly fit your style.
Define Your Look with Dining Room Chairs
Selecting a dining chair set is essential for balancing and defining your dining area. Kitchen and dining room chairs often serve as the finishing touch, complementing other décor elements in the room with their style, color, and design details. Modern dining chair designs offer almost endless ways to mix, match, and elevate. Whether you choose to go luxe or keep it laid-back, here are a few ideas to inspire you.
Black and White Dining Chairs
Nothing sets off a modern tone like a set of black or white dining chairs. Whether your look is bright and edited or moody and full of organic texture, high-tone finishes can complete the look. We love a space that pairs black dining chairs with a light-finished table or sideboard to create visual impact. For a softer approach, white dining chairs in a neutral aesthetic can add to its clean, airy feel. Or pairing light and black finishes for an extra bold note of contrast.
Neutral Dining Chairs
Wood and woven dining chairs offer timeless quality with a lasting, natural style. Whether you are looking for the always fresh appeal of rattan dining chairs or the versatile elegance of wood dining chairs, organic materials can inspire a warm, grounded tone. Our Lawnie Dining Chair pairs a beautiful natural grain with a sleek design in an oak dining chair ready for transitional appeal.
Upholstered Dining Chairs
The easiest way to bring a touch of sophistication to your dining room is to add upholstered dining chairs. Chic upholstery layers in color and texture can complement or contrast the table and surrounding furniture in the room. Neutral fabrics add warmth and allow other details to be the focal point—like a woven cane back or the stylish wood grain of a chair's legs. Or you can breathe life and add a vibrant pop by layering in dining seats in rich color palettes, like the Pomona Dining Chair in either earthy terracotta or moody navy blue.
Mixing and Matching Dining Room Chairs
For a more laid-back approach, try mixing and matching styles. Think upholstered dining arm chairs paired with streamlined side chairs. Try to find a unifying note that makes the pairing feel intentional. This common link can be anything from the color of the finish, leg design, or even the vintage style they are inspired by—like all black dining chairs with different silhouettes or an assortment of rattan dining chairs for collected warmth. Integrating different styles gives your dining table an eclectic look and adds a signature touch.
Style Kitchen Chairs for Dynamic Appeal
Creating a beautiful atmosphere in your kitchen can be greatly enhanced by selecting the right kitchen chairs. We love performance fabric in the kitchen and dining room because it lets you bring in unique texture while offering an easy-care appeal. Wood dining chairs provide the same easy-care appeal and often come in lightweight, airy designs perfect for a dynamic space. Since our kitchens act as the heart of the house and see a lot of traffic throughout the day, we recommend choosing a design and materiality that can withstand daily use.
Create an Alfresco Space with Outdoor Dining Chairs
If you enjoy gazing up at the stars while eating dinner outside, you want dining chairs that can withstand the elements. But just because you're choosing chairs for outdoor performance doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice comfort and style. As with indoor designs, your outdoor dining chairs should strike a balance that is eye-catching yet practical.
Outdoor chairs can highlight the beauty of nature with organic constructions or bring a modern look to a rustic setting by strikingly contrasting the environment. Our Manila Indoor / Outdoor Dining Chair offers a sculptural woven dining chair design with a cozy scoop seat wrapped in a richly-textured wicker weave for a fresh and airy piece to partner with an outdoor dining table. View and shop our outdoor furniture collection to choose a fresh-air dining set that reflects your interior decor.
When you shop online at Lulu and Georgia, you'll find timeless and modern dining chairs to complement the style of your space while making it feel more elevated. Your dining chair set allows you to showcase your individuality with little touches of nuanced design. Whether you want to buy beautiful dining arm chairs to sit at either end of a large table or streamlined pieces for a small bistro set-up, we have a selection curated by material and color.
