Project Process: This Old House Dining Room, Chair Thoughts

June 30th, 2016

I find dining chairs are always one of the hardest items to source and settle on. So many options, such a variation in comfort and and even bigger variation in price! On this This Old House North Shore Farmhouse project we talked early on about farmhouse or industrial, about which direction was right for the house. I love this inspiration image below of how graphic the backs of the black chairs are. We also were looking to see if we could find something that was vintage or antique, ideally sourcing locally.

Since finding something vintage that works and has the quantity locally can be so hard without endless hours of design time scouring I thought about mixing it up. I love these images below that shows mixing and matching of dining chairs can work really well.

Mixing is totally an option. The idea of the farmhouse chair started percolating as the right look for the space, really driving that farmhouse feel forward. I have an obsession with the ones below. I love the graphic visual of the traditional Windsor chair!

I found these guys on Chairish and they totally have that modern farmhouse look!
