Got a ranch or farmhouse where you like spending your weekends and holidays? Or maybe you’re lucky enough to have your very own piece of countryside! Well, when you’re not out horse riding or just enjoying the view, the best part about owning a farmhouse is the family meals. Doesn’t matter if you’re few or many; nothing beats gathering friends and family around the table for a hearty dinner.
Of course, you’ll want some decent chairs to go with your table. Without them, your guests might start worrying about comfort and spoil an otherwise lovely get-together. You don’t even have to limit yourself to the table. Why not get chairs for the gazebo, deck, and fire pit while you’re at it?
If you’re here to find the best chairs for farmhouse table, then sit back and relax because you have arrived compadres.
I’ve already done all the legwork to find the top 6 chairs designed perfectly for your farmhouse. Let’s dive right into it shall we?
Top 6 Chairs For Farmhouse Table
1. Florence Dining Chairs
If you’re looking for mid-age classic chairs that blend in with modern decor, then look no further than these Florence Dining Chairs.
At 21” x 20” x 30”, a single chair weighs approximately 13 lbs (5.9 kg). Since they come in a set of two, that would make the final weight around 26 lbs. Overall, the chairs have a small height with small armrests. However, the seat is quite wide and spacious.
All design features considered, these Florence beauties promise to seamlessly blend in with your farm table. Their mid-century looks are bang on -right to the color. From behind, her crescent-shaped Windsor Back and slightly protruding armrests simply can’t be ignored.
Build-wise, they make quite a sage investment. That’s because it comprises of rubberwood which is known to withstand high pressures. The fact that rubberwood has great tenacity only adds to the comfort. The manufacturer really talks a big game when it comes to durability; now we know why.
But as is the case with all products, not everything is perfect. Sure, you can lean back considerably without worrying about tripping over. But if your chairs have poorly fitted screws, you may have one or two of the legs hovering slightly above the rest. That’s definitely a bummer. Fortunately, the chances of this are low, and it’s an easy peasy fix.
The next hiccup only applies to people with extremely low farm tables. Although the chairs are relatively small, the arms might put up a fight getting under low top farmhouse tables. They could have been a little lower and if you’re a DIY nut, fixing this should not be a problem. But please guys, don’t ever try to use force in sliding them under because you might chip off the paint.
All in all, these Florencian beauties seem to be a reasonable investment. But only if you can avoid the said shortcomings.
2. Solid Elm Wood Dining Side Chair
While the previous chairs had a post classic feel, the Solid Elm Wood Dining Side Chair will transport you straight to “the bustling streets of Old Vienna” as the manufacturer puts it. It’s among the best minimalists, antique looking options for farmhouse tables if you ask moi.
First off, it is super light at just 10 lbs. Add this to its 21” x 19.5” x 34.5” dimensions and you get a chair that it can be easily carried around. And since it doesn’t have any armrests, it slides smoothly under any height table. This aptly makes it suitable for other purposes too. For example, it can also work as your desk chair (occasionally).
Still on the design, its rustic looks bring quite a lot to the table (pun intended) if you’re aiming for an antique farmhouse theme. After all, a little off-browns and reds are what you need to spice up such interiors. Oh, did I forget to mention the French style – tres beau!
Alright, we’ve been transported to Vienna and back. But last time I was there, thing’s weren’t so red. It’s worth mentioning that the color of the chair is not exactly as shown in the picture. You may find it too reddish, almost too in-the-eyes red.
Steering towards the main aspect of this beauty (comfort) this chair does a fantastic job. The seat comes with a meshed cane which is padded underneath for even more cushioning. Sure it won’t exactly feel like a recliner, but it does pretty great for a dining chair.
According to the manufacturer, these solid elm wood chairs are super sturdy. That might be true, but only to a certain extent. Under light to medium use, your chairs will be fine. However, too much weight or rough housing on the seats might be asking too much of them.
One of the chair’s strongest selling points is definitely the price. For everything that it has to offer, I consider it one of the best chair for farmhouse table you can buy at this price point.
3. Winsome Wood 89999
Do you have a dine-in kitchen on your farm? If yes, then the Winson Wood 89999 should be in your cart right away. If no, then we finally got a dining seat built for some heavy lifting.
It might seem small at 17.25” x 16.5” x 37”, but this also makes it perfect for fitting a lot of them all around your table. However, unlike the other chairs I’ve so far discussed, this one is slightly heavier at 30.7 lbs. Of course, this doesn’t mean you have to call a crane to lift them.
The maximum weight this chair can handle is 100 kg i.e 220 lbs. If you are lower than that, you won’t have any issues. Any more than than and you can sit on two; another benefit of small, strong chairs.
The main thing in Winsome Wood chairs are the aesthetics (other than her materials). Simple beech woodcraft is all that meets the eyes. This simplicity and it’s ripe oak color promises to accentuate the looks of your farmhouse table.
Still on the material, beech is known for its long-lived sturdiness. This chair is relatively strong; but where the wood excels, the joints fail. They’re mainly stapled, screwed, and wedged together leaving room for weak points. Some customers have reported snapping at the joints with continued use.
Although this model does not pack all the ergonomic features you are looking for (it is just a dining chair after all), there are certain features to drool over. For one, she’s made of oak and slightly leans back making it a bit more comfortable. You don’t need any cushions here.
Beware, though. There are some customers that have reported uneven legs. Wobbling is the last thing you want.
At the current price, Winsome Wood 89999 is as good as its weakest joint. But you can’t expect a dining set to be perfect; not at this price. Still, it makes a very good chair for farmhouse table.
4. International Concepts C02-213 Windsor Chair
Here’s another arrowback chair famously known as the International Concepts C02-213 Windsor chair. Not only is it a good chair for a farm tables, but this one’s got my attention more than the previous one.
The dimensions of it are 21” x 19.5” x 38.1”, which ultimately makes it larger. However, it weighs (18 lbs) and has a stark white added to the natural oak color. That means you get to move it around just fine and still have your guests asking where you got the inspiring blend of white and brown.
Like the previous model, the chair comes assembled. And if you have to buy more than one, you’ll get separate packaging for them. A word of caution here: some of the customers have complained about broken spindles and legs – courtesy of the shipping. But if your chair wobbles, then it’s definitely a manufacturing fault, which again, some customers have reported. You should return it immediately if you notice similar issues.
Strength-wise, the chair is very sturdy – almost of the same group as maple seats. But here again, it is as sturdy as its weakest spindle and joint. For some, the chair gave away after a bit of rough housing by kids.
Overall, the chair is not too bad for the price. But it also won’t be winning any awards soon.
5. Christopher Knight Home 302241
Were I to put the Christopher Knight Home 302241 poetically, I’d say it’s an imperfect perfection. What on earth does this mean? Read on folks.
At 28.8 pounds and 19.7 x 17.9 x 36.2 inches, each chair in this set of two weighs in slightly heavy, but are relatively small. Heavy and small might not be your thing, but sometimes classic furniture items are built this way. Let’s not get carried away because there are some caveats. Not in the chair’s design, though.
A round spindle back goes perfectly with antique furniture – there’s no denying in that. You can easily use them with your farmhouse furniture and they’ll add up to your “in the woods” experience.
It’s the structure itself or the material rather that is at a certain flaw. For example, although the customers have applauded the comfort of the chairs because of the rubberwood, the same material has been crafted to contain manufacturing flaws. If you are one of the unlucky, you may have a flawed piece with unfitting screws and chipped paint.
Nobody wants that.
Assembling the chairs is a fairly easy process, although there’s little mentioned about it. Just a few screws and your work will be done.
When it comes to relying on its strength while leaning, you can have that liberty to some extent. However, don’t expect it to carry over 200 pounds because it isn’t simply built for that.
The pair is definitely worth your money if you can overlook some slight flaws that this chair comes with.
6. Hesperia Windsor Dining Side Chairs
Windsor has many country styled arrowbacks – and this one is one of them. The Hesperia dining side chairs are a decent lot built just for the farmhouse table. We’ve already checked out a few of them above, and there isn’t really much difference with these Windsors’.
The slight difference here is the weight and dimensions. The Hesperia’s are incredibly heavy (50.7 lbs) and quite small (18 x 18 x 36 inches). This makes them the heaviest chairs on our entire list today.
You won’t find any discrepancy in the design though. A bucolic look is what these chairs render to your table and the surroundings. So no matter where you put them, in your farmhouse, around the table, doesn’t matter. They will add a raw look which indeed a farmhouse is worth.
The legs are angled to give users a more stable base. I like this aspect and its two-toned color. However, the quality of both of these is somewhat lacking.
For some customers, they wobbled and came loose after just first use. But again, that could be because of the transportation aspect. This does however give us a window into the toughness of the chairs.
Next is the comfort level. For petite chair like these, comfort is hardly a top proirity. Surprisingly, Windsor did just fine with these beauties.
But beware, comfortable does not mean it can take extra weight. Although the weight limit is 250 lbs, some customers have reported that it can’t even take 5 pounds over that limit.
This set of 4 chairs would do great for your farmhouse table, but somewhere at the guests reception area where they won’t see much action.
That about wraps up this piece on the Best chairs for Farmhouse table. I hope my research, content and recommendations have served their purpose of helping you make a decision. But even with their limitations, the chairs listed above are the best in their respective classes.
What you need to remember is that there isn’t any dining chair out there that wouldn’t have any shortcomings. If you have any questions or suggestions for me, let me know via comments.
