Dining Chairs

1940s Dining Chairs

Embrace the modernist design of the flourishing 1940s. Post-war Britain saw an emergence of cleaner lines, more utilitarian furniture, and less ornate detailing. Chairs were no different. Our collection of 1940s dining chairs ranges from the achingly cool tubular steel framed sets to gorgeous rustic quaker-style chairs.

The 1940s was a decade of variety and eclecticism. Brands such as Ercol, Ton, and G Plan took their influences from art nouveau curves, bentwood craftsmanship, and the yearning of a post-war generation for something crisp, fresh, and renewed optimism. Capture this revolutionary decade with a set of 2, 4, 8 or even 16 1940s dining chairs to sit all of your nearest and dearest for gastronomic extravaganzas.

Whether you simply want to refresh your dining room with a smattering of period charm or you’re on the hunt for an elusive piece for a commercial client, we’ve got you covered. Shun the sameness and opt for something different. With over a hundred 1940s dining chairs in our collection, you’re sure to find you’re one-of-a-kind.
