Browse Dining Chairs for Your Kitchen or Formal Dining Room

Enjoying a meal with family is a daily occurrence for a lot of people. Even if you can't get the whole gang together every day - which so many of us can't due to busy schedules and lifestyles - it's essential to have a dining area that will seat all of your friends and family with ease.

At Pottery Barn, you can find a huge assortment of dining chairs to fit every different style of home and seating area. Shop our collection to find contemporary styles, comfortable looks and traditional chairs to help you get your dining space ready for festive celebrations, dinner parties and weeknight meals.

Choosing Dining Chairs

Chairs placed around your kitchen or dining table serve an important purpose. Whether you're hosting a big dinner party or preparing a quick weeknight meal featuring your favorite takeout dishes, you need chairs that fit your lifestyle and your home's style. Here are some of the most popular options you can find at Pottery Barn:

  • Slipcovered chairs. Ideal for casual dining spaces, coastal designs and transitional looks, slipcovered chairs provide a clean appearance that's great for often-used spaces. Most slipcovers can go right in the wash too, making them exceptionally smart in high-use, family-friendly spaces.
  • Upholstered chairs. Add neutral color or a bold, vibrant pattern to your dining room or kitchen with upholstered chairs. You can find everything from easy-to-care-for fabric to top-tier leather for formal dining rooms.
  • Natural wood chairs. Add a timeless touch to your dining room or kitchen with natural wood chairs. Need a little more style in your space? Go for a painted wood chair or a wood chair with a seagrass, rope or upholstered back. You can even find mixed wood and metal chairs to bring an industrial-chic vibe to your dining space.
  • Modern metal chairs. Go contemporary with steel, black and colorful metal chairs for your kitchen or dining room. These will work especially well in mid-century and retro-inspired spaces.

Available Styles

Every kitchen and dining room is different. That's why shopping for the perfect chair, or set of chairs, is personal and unique to your room and tastes. Whatever look you're going for, you'll find a few common chair types that'll work in any space.

  • Armchairs. Perfect for the head of your table, armchairs provide a ton of visual interest to your dining room and add weight to your space. Pair them with armless chairs to go around your table for a tried and true look that's classic and clean.
  • Armless chairs. Great for saving space or placing around the sides of your table, armless chairs can be mixed in with more formal options or used to create a casual look.
  • Oversized chairs. Got a big dining table that needs some serious seating? Look for oversized chairs with simple style, or ornate features like exposed nail head trim and leather welting.

Ways to Buy Dining Chairs

Gourmet chefs, takeout aficionados and everyday home cooks all need a place to eat and enjoy their favorite meals. Here are a few ways to shop for dining chairs and get your table outfitted in style:

  • Shop for a set of chairs to go with your kitchen table. Get a cohesive look in your casual space with a set of matching chairs for the whole family. Natural wood, upholstered chairs and mixed material chairs give you options to match your table and existing room decor.
  • Mix-and-match styles that you love for an eclectic look. Sets can give your dining room a refined style, but pairing different chairs together can create a unique look in your space that you just won't see anywhere else.
  • Look to add dining benches to your table. Dining benches bring a unique look to your room when paired with standard chairs at the head of the table. They also provide ample seating for tight spaces where chairs might look and feel a bit bulky.
