What’s Trending in Dining Chairs & Stools

trending dining chairs and stools

Dedicated dining rooms, multipurpose kitchens and small-space dining nooks all have one thing in common: they need dining seating. And if your dining space is feeling uninspired, new dining chairs and stools are the perfect way to upgrade your space for everyday meals or hosting dinner parties. Whether your dining space is big or small, the latest trends in chairs and stools will have your mealtime more than ready for 2020.

Mismatched Chairs

One of our favourite new trends in dining seating, mismatched chairs let you flex your creative muscles. We usually see this executed with two of the same chair at each end of the dining table and another set along the sides, but you can also work with an eclectic mix of chairs. To keep things feeling like they belong together, choose a common theme that ties the chairs together. It could be a colour palette (like all black chairs keep the mismatch feeling sophisticated) or a similar design aesthetic.

Combining Styles

Another take on the mismatched trend is dining chairs that don’t exactly match the table they’re paired with. You can play with design styles, like pairing mid-century chairs with a more traditional style table or luxe upholstered dining chairs with a clean-lined table. To best pull it off, make sure your dining chairs and table are on a similar scale.

Vintage Silhouettes

Vintage inspired chairs and stools create a dining area that feels warm and approachable. Mid-century pieces like our Gleason Chairs and Stools pair nicely with tables from different design styles, and their small silhouettes are ideal for elevated dining in an apartment of smaller home.

Add Contrast

Make a statement in your beautiful all-white kitchen with contrasting counter stools. Made from black-painted wood with a lacquer finish, our Hershel Counter Stools pop against white or light grey counters, and the Windsor silhouette adds a vintage complement to modern kitchens.

Mixed Materials

All wood or upholstered dining chairs are classic choices, but new materials like black metal and faux leather add a sophisticated edge to the room. Best of all, these mixed material chairs and stools look good with tables in a variety of wood tones and even as extra living room seating. One of our favourite styles, the Emmory Dining Chair combines easy-to-clean polyurethane upholstery with slim, black metal legs for a casual industrial look.
