I have no idea how to pick out dining chairs. This I have discovered over the past two weeks. Back in Wisconsin we had a secondhand dining set, meaning that I have never, not even once, bought dining chairs. Therefore, I had no idea there were 87,475 different chairs out there to choose from.
(I also couldn’t pick out a table to save my life, as everything is made from MDF these days and I wanted something solid. Something solid that didn’t cost $1,000. Therefore, the husband is making the table.)
Very mid-century. Perhaps too mid-century, and not appropriate for an old farmhouse. Either way, the reviews went back and forth between these are so sturdy! to these are flimsy! and I decided to pass.
Here are the chairs I really wanted to buy, but did not.
Same dilemma. Too modern. But awesome. I might buy one and use it as as accent chair.
Definitely not mid-century. Kohl’s was having one of those sales where they let you stack 40 coupons and I almost bought these, but the dark walnut seat threw me. Couldn’t do it. Wrong color.
Metal. Bronze. Farmhouse-ish. I have never had metal dining chairs before, so this may turn out to be a mistake. If it does turn out to be a mistake I can always throw them outside and use them as patio chairs.
That’s me, always thinking ahead.
Sometimes. Not really.
See you later!
