Choosing Dining & Kitchen Chairs

As a gathering spot, your dining room or kitchen can take on all types of functions — so the chairs around your table need to work for your lifestyle. Consider the factors below to help you find the dining chair that best suits you.


For long meals, an upholstered chair is the ultimate in comfort. Our performance fabric and leather chairs keep you comfortable, while minimizing the worry of spills or stains. Wood chairs offer support with contoured seats and angled backs and bring the beauty of natural materials into your home. Having trouble deciding between the two? We also offer wood chairs with upholstered seats.


Consider the distance between the legs of your table when selecting a chair. When possible, allow for six inches of space between each chair and the table legs. If space is not a concern, smaller chairs or chairs without arms allow you to fit more people around a table, while wide chairs with arms typically provide the most comfort.


Dining chairs don't always live at the table. For a versatile seating solution, consider a chair that would work equally well as occasional extra seating in the living room. Stackable chairs allow you to easily store your seating. Some of our dining chairs are made from materials that can live outdoors as well, so you can bring great design and comfort outside - all in one chair.

Dining Benches

Dining benches provide maximum seating in a minimal space. Consider a dining bench for a cost-effective option to seat as many people as possible at your table. You'll love the unique versatility and functionality benches bring to your kitchen or dining room. Choose a backless bench to keep a small dining space looking open and airy.
