Kitchen Chairs & Benches

Add a touch of sophisticated elegance to your home with a myriad of different styles of dining chairs and benches. Enhance the rustic feel of an older home with lush, finished woods, or make every chair in your dining room shine with glossy black leather. Build a dining room set piece by piece to completely style your room to your personal taste, or opt for a set of chairs that matches the theme of your dining table. Possibilities are endless when you have a large selection of chairs, materials and styles to choose from. Benches and banquettes also offer a nice touch, depending on the scope of the room.

When deciding on dining chairs for your space, think about how you will use the chairs the most, and also the occupants in your house. If you have small children and animals, it’s a good idea to stray away from more formal, upholstered dining chairs, where tears and stains may easily show. To still add flair to your formal dining room without sacrificing style, you may appreciate fine wooden chairs that are still elegant, but easier to clean. Pottery Barn offers a large selection of everyday chairs that always make great choices for those with young children and pets.

For those with a relatively formal dining room, non-tufted and leather dining chairs are a good choice. Let the conversation linger at the table with deep, luxurious chairs, never feeling rushed to move into the den or living room because the chairs are too uncomfortable. Depending on the level of comfort your desire, tufted chairs are another good choice for a formal dining room. If your preference is to build a complete formal dining room, choosing a complete dining collection allows you the complete look, without having to assemble the idea yourself piece-by-piece. Popular collections include such styles as Linden, Bowry and Toscana, ranging from modern to contemporary styles and everything in between. Dining collections include much more than simply tables and chairs, as you are easily able to find a collection with a buffet, cabinet, hutch or other piece of furniture that perfectly complements your dining room.

Those building an informal dining room or require chairs for an eat-in kitchen may want to opt for a more casual look. Casual, contemporary styles are also good choices for young families or for families with pets. Benches are a terrific idea for a rustic, fun style without compromising your sense of decor. Benches easily seat several members of your family, or are a perfect choice for having friends over, for family game night or to simply gather around the dining room table. Mix and match benches and chairs together for an interesting, eclectic style. Banquette sets also lend a casual air with the functionality of having extra storage space. These are a terrific idea for eat-in kitchens or dining rooms without a lot of extra space. Simply store your extra items within the banquette, but still have enough seating room for all of your guests.

Depending on the type of dining room you have, you may also enjoy side chairs within your dining room or your kitchen. Side chairs, along with extras such as bar and counter stools, add some extra seating when you need it the most. Side chairs and stools are great ideas for holiday dinner overflow, the children’s table at Thanksgiving or extra seating during dinner and cocktail parties. Choose from elegant wooden chairs that match your existing dining set’s decor, or opt for leather or tufted chairs to complement the colors instead. When using wooden chairs, it’s also ideal to have chair covers and pads for guests who may be seated at the dinner table for long periods of time. Never compromise style or comfort with this exquisite selection of dining room dining room tables and chairs.
