Gorgeous industrial style dining chairs

Oozing with style and highly functional. These are the criteria for making our industrial dining chairs collection. Browse your way through wow-worthy pieces made from beautiful teak, mahogany, elm and pine in this carefully selected range. If metal’s more your thing, look for styles in aluminium, chrome and steel, or choose mixed material seating combining glass, vinyl and plastic.

An industrial design history

When the disused factories of the USA and England were repurposed into living spaces in the 1940s, the industrial design trend was born. It quickly exploded into one of the most sought-after styles for creating modern living and working spaces that combined true function with unpretentious beauty. Furniture makers found beauty in simplicity, exploring stripped-back, minimalist and edgy styles – with the simple chair lending itself perfectly to experimentation with this form.

A plethora of styles in our industrial dining chairs

Our industrial style dining chairs range from sturdy wooden styles that wouldn’t look out of place in a 1930s schoolroom to minimalist metallic chairs in statement-making shapes. Our easy-to-navigate website helps you find exactly what you’re after, be it a set of lavish walnut art deco inspired dinner chairs or some mixed-material school canteen chairs. Pair these chairs with industrial tables and wall art from our collection to complete the look for your dining or working space.

The raw materials

Inspired by the factories and warehouse of the late 1700s – when simplicity meant safety and high productivity – industrial style furniture is characterised by untreated materials and functional shapes. Cue plenty of wood and metal, with other materials like soft furnishings and plastic later adopted as part of the trend. In our collection, pick from styles in natural browns and metallic greys for an understated look. Or if you’re looking to make your industrial dining chairs more of a feature, go for seating in brightly painted wood and eye-catching upholstery.

Industrial dining chair designers

Since the advent of industrial style for interiors in the 1950s, countless architects and design trailblazers have given it their own spin. Be it the industrial leather dining chairs by French visionary Charlotte Perriand or ultra-minimalist stacking chairs by Dutchman Wim Rietveld. You’ll find a full gamut of styles among our industrial style dining chairs. Simplistic mixed material seating sound like your thing? Try Dutch design icon Friso Kramer. Or pick from more stylised chairs by Danish designer Arne Jacobs and German Adam Stegner, featuring cut-out sections and curvier shapes.
