How to choose your dining chairs

The wooden and woven collection

Overwhelmed by choosing a chair? Sit down, settle in, and let us guide you through our simple and natural wooden & woven rattan chair collection for how to choose your dining chairs. Especially with little ones or pets around, these chairs are an easy choice for everyday living. They are also an easy interior style to work with at home.

MEASURE UP YOUR CHAIRS & TABLES

Before buying your dining chairs, measure your dining table, so you know how much room you have and work out how many chairs can fit around your table. If you need help, you can visit our stores.

1. The length and width of your table (or circumference if it is round) – each guest will need about 60-80cm as a place setting. This gives enough space but still close enough to talk.

2. The height of the table top (from the floor to underneath the table top) – to help you work out how much leg space you have. This means you and your guests don’t feel too cramped. 

3. The seat height – measure from the floor to the chosen chair seat so you have ample leg space for guests, ideally 30cm.

DINING DESIGNS

Deauville-Hamptons-Chair-White

Think of the colours at home and how you’d like to pair these. Match pale timber chairs with pale timber tables, and dark with dark. We have mid-tone oak that can be paired with darker or lighter tables, if you don’t want anything too matchy-matchy. Each chair is designed with simplicity in mind. The rattan options can be teamed with any of our tables

ALL RATTAN DINING CHAIRS

RAFFLES-ARMCHAIR-FRONT-WITH-CUSHION-1

A carver chair or chair with armrests: the woven Hamptons Raffles Chair can work twice as hard, as either a dining chair, or equally as an occasional chair. These obviously add to the comfort level at your dining table, but are a wider option, so be mindful of your space and also whether you want the arms to tuck in under the table top or not. 

SOLID TIMBER DINING CHAIRS

CHATEAU-DINING-CHAIR-SIDE

The high-back design of the Chateau timber chair is a solid, heavy piece crafted from our signature mango wood.

NEWPORT-DINING-CHAIR-SIDE

The other high-back design is the Newport timber chair, which can be pre-ordered. It is also a heavy choice, crafted from mango wood.
