Your new favourite dining chairs made by top brands

Dining room chairs need to look the part to help tie the room together. Everyone has their idea of what a dining chair should look like, especially if you have pet peeves with specific design elements. At Hampton & McMurray, we handpick every chair you see here, working exclusively with designer names we know to make some of the best chairs you can buy online.

For anyone new to the world of dining room chairs, some great brands to check out would include Ercol, Iain James, Nathan, Skovby & Venjakob. They all create unique designs which can match the look and feel of a dining room without issue.

Knowing when you've found the right dining chair

Dining chairs aren't an item you buy frequently, so what should you be keeping an eye out for when purchasing one? To avoid easy mistakes, we suggest you take the time to think about:

Fabric
You would be surprised by the difference fabric can make on a chair. When opting for a chair with a fabric back and cushion, it helps to lean on softer tones that complement the table's wood/colour. Some customers find that a bold colour like yellow or red helps when choosing a dining chair that is all fabric. Take fabric into account, especially if your table has fabric, plastic, or leather design features.

Arms
Some people love them. Some people hate them. Dining chairs with arms are something you'll want to think about. Customers who would see their dining room as a space to entertain or even work often remark that chairs with arms can feel more comfortable when sitting for long periods.

The Table
How do you want your chairs to match your table? Would you like them to blend in or stand out? Some of the chairs in this section are primarily used as part of a set, and you'll be able to see those sets when checking out the product page.

Whether you even want a chair
We are seeing greater demand amongst customers for dining room benches, especially in family homes and apartments. They are fantastic space savers and look very trendy. We would note that benches tend to look better with contemporary table designs.

When your dining room is your office

Has working from home seen your dining room become the de-facto office for the day? If so, we suggest looking at our range of home office furniture, where you can find items that look great in dining rooms. And to avoid paperwork piling up, some of our dining room cabinets & display units can help keep the place tidy.

Pull up a stool

Have you been making changes at home to give yourself a space to entertain? If you have a home bar or games room and feel that a dining chair might not look the part, we have the answer. Customers love our range of bar stools from brands like Ercol and Peressini.
