So step away from the mass-market flat-pack options and take a closer look at our vintage and contemporary Danish dining chairs.

Why choose Danish dining chairs?

Danish designers tend to favour certain woods, and most common amongst these are teak and rosewood. Whatever your colour scheme, you will find something to suit from the creamy honeyed hue of rich teak to the dark moody opulence of rosewood. Danish dining chairs can come in a variety of different upholstery options, depending on the designer and the period in which they were manufactured. While leather is a popular material, of course, you will also find chairs in a range of fabrics and even a cane seat.

The simple lines of these dining chairs have a beautiful regularity, which is both pleasingly uniform but soft and mellow. Often described as being sleek without creeping into minimalism, Scandinavian design is at once stylish and utilitarian. And nowhere is this more apparent than in the slender legs, curved backs and angled seat of many Danish dining chairs, particularly those from the mid-20th century.

For a large dining space, why not opt for a set of vintage retro teak dining chairs by Erik Buch. These will look ideal teamed with a teak dining table and would also work in a small funky office space thanks to the 60s vibe. Alternatively, Danish chairs work well when mixed and matched to create an eclectic and informal dining space. After all, your dinner guests are all different personalities, so why not make your seating reflective of this.

Antique Danish Style Furniture

If you are trying to marry vintage Danish furniture with a more traditional or perhaps antique style, a set of light rosewood chairs with an oatmeal seat will complement a strongly decorative backdrop nicely. Calm and unobtrusive, these chairs nevertheless add sophistication with subtlety.
