We got new dining chairs! We had our last beige eiffel chairs (I put a picture near the bottom of the post for you!) for three years and still loved them for how easy they are to wipe down, but were itching for a change. Over Thanksgiving, we hosted 30 Marcums and had to pull out all of the chairs under our roof. Among them, was one of these low back Windsor-style chairs that I used as an office chair for some time. I forgot how comfortable it was! And it looked so good with our dining table.
It sparked an idea, and on Black Friday, I noticed they were on closeout on Wayfair (still are!!) and I snatched up 7 more. It was nice to order a chair that we had lived with for so long and knew we liked.
They are molded plastic and all one piece, which means they don’t knick like black wood does (our taller back windsor chairs had light scratches all over the seat!) and aren’t going to come loose at any joints.
I love the modern lower curved backs that are really supportive, the slightly tapered legs, that we can fit 8 easily at our table and they can stack when we don’t want that many!
Here’s a reminder of our previous chairs:
I think both are really good options, but I’m loving the sophistication of the black ones now and the contrast they bring. For a long time, I worried that black chairs would blend into our kitchen cabinets, but in reality, they make the dining table more distinct and the whole set-up feel less cluttered.
We’re brining the old shell chairs up to the cabin for now, so we don’t have to sit on patio chairs while we’re there (haha), but if you’re interested in those, they are still available here (on Amazon) or here (on Target) or here (on Overstock).
