You really can’t go wrong with oak dining chairs. Thoughtfully designed and beautifully made, oak chairs make the most of the lovely wood they’re crafted from, emphasising the woods’ natural grain and smooth texture.
At Furniture Village, the majority of our oak dining room chairs tend toward the traditional in style, with ladder back and cross back chairs being especially popular. Based on traditional chair designs, these styles work well with a more formal dining table but, perhaps surprisingly, also look great around a modern table, especially if you like the contemporary eclectic look.
When you’re choosing chairs to pair with your oak dining table don’t forget to consider comfort as well as style. For a formal dining room where you’ll be hosting special occasion meals, you may want to look at chairs with upholstered seats, supportive backs and even armrests. Kitchens and kitchen diners look better with casual oak dining chairs, like our styles with simple curved or spindle backs. Easy-clean or wipeable leather-look fabrics can be a great choice for kitchen dining chair upholstery. And an oak bench makes a wonderful kitchen seating solution, especially if space is a little tight.
If you love the look of all oak furniture – not just oak dining chairs – you’ll be happy to hear that we stock a wide range of pieces in beautiful solid oak, from bed frames and wardrobes to sideboards and media cabinets.
Not sure? While oak is a great material for dining chairs and tables, there are plenty of other stylish options for dining sets including metal and glass as well as different types of wood with painted or lacquered finishes.
