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.
These chairs are available at Overstock ($140) and Wayfair (closeout sale for $84!!).
Update! For sale on Amazon here. On Houzz here.
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).

hi, i love your table but when i click the link you provided, it will not work anymore. can you tell me where you got it ?
Please provide a link directly to the chairs? The link you provide only goes to wayfair’s main site and I can’t find these exact chairs anywhere!
LOVE your dining room, just designing my new one now. It looks like the vase is no longer available, do you know of a similar one?
Gorgeous space! Please can you give me the room dimensions of the kitchen and the island and the distance to the dining room table as well? We’re starting a renovation shortly and I’m trying to see if we can do something similar!
Where is your light fixture over your table from? I love it!
Where did you get your stools
Love it. Also love that blue/gray wall that we never get to see. What is that paint color? I know it’s not BM hazy skies ????. Love what you’ve done to the house and can’t wait for the cabin
Very nice, much less busy. Love the change.
Great suggestion !!!! I love this table and dining chair !!!!!
Love the blackchairs and that they’re plastic! We have white Panton S chair knockoffs at our black dining table which are also plastic. After living with white West Elm scoop chairs and benches, it is awesome to have something that wipes down and doesn’t show any wear or tear. We got our S chairs from Poly + Bark – they also have gorgeous black ones which might look amazing at the heads of your table.
I love, Love, love this!!! Your table is a dream, but the price is not ????. Have you ever found a cheaper knock off ????? The chairs I can do!!!
Definitely my inspiration table/chairs… as your entire house is for me! ????
Whoa, had no idea these were plastic! I have a question about that, and mostly about the plastic shell chairs too (since I’m considering something similar). Do you find that the plastic is staticky? I think that’s my only holdup! (We have upholstered chairs now, and ya, not going to keep them for long with kids!).
These look great. They help showcase the table and create a calm look. Love them!
Good choice, they do look a lot nicer than the previous… though I did not think previous looked poor. Sharing both, for sure the black!
Do they look plastic-y?? Really love them and am thinking about getting them in white. I just don’t want them to scream “I’m plastic!”. lol. Love that you can wipe them down with kids!!
I LOVE this table, but I have two questions/concerns. Do you feel like it is wide enough for meals with several people? Does it feel crowded? And, how is it to clean? I worry about my kiddos coloring on it and destroying it. ;(
Loving those back chairs!! This reminds me, i need to take a magic eraser to our white shell chairs ASAP!
Do they look like plastic in person? They look like wood in your pictures.
Are they really sturdy? Tippy? I bought similar spindle black chairs with a higher back that a wood (same or very similar to the end chairs you had previously) and they seem to tip easily with my kids, these seem like they may be a better option??
Like what I see!
Looks so much nicer!
Love the change! Completely agree with Melissa that the sightline is much prettier and visually cleaner.
Wow these really make the entire table and sightline much prettier!
I have been looking for chairs to go with our kitchen table forever. I love these – but darn it the black ones are sold out on both sites. Maybe they will re-stock? Sigh
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
