Which type of dining chair do you like?
Depending on your lifestyle, at vidaXL you’ll find a variety of models for dining chairs. Some focus on comfort, others bring some fanciness into your home. We have dining chairs suitable for bigger families or some that help in designing a super modern space.
Dining chairs with armrest
This option of dining chairs is the most comfortable. Especially when you go for upholstered dining chairs with armrests. You ensure a comfortable seating position, while getting a nice dining look. The upholstery is soft to touch, made from quality fabrics.
The wooden version of the dining chair with armrests is another great option. They brighten up the space and make a great addition to a rustic dining room. Add some colourful cushions for extra cosiness.
Stackable dining chairs
At vidaXL we provide solutions for every type of room. When dealing with limited space but enjoying social gatherings, we recommend stackable dining chairs. Great for saving up space, these chairs are constructed from solid wood or metal. The wooden ones sometimes feature armrests, which adds to their comfort. Opt for wooden stackable dining chairs for both interior and outdoor use.
The metal stackable dining chairs resemble bar stools but have the proper height for standard dining tables. They come in different colours and shapes and are the perfect seating idea for when you’re having people over.
Swivel dining chairs
For a modern dining look, choose swivel dining chairs. They’re good-looking, easy to maintain, and sturdy. The height-adjustable base is perfect when you have kids. Seats are made of polypropylene, such a durable and easy to clean material. Plus, they’re available in a variety of colours. This allows you to determine the look of your dining room. You can even mix and match different shades, for a bright dining space.
Cantilever dining chairs
Cantilever chairs are the best choice for a modern or even industrial looking dining room. Sturdy and comfortable, the vidaXL cantilever chairs are upholstered in durable fabric. What makes a cantilever chair so special is the clean design of its legs. The powder-coated metal legs promise stability, while adding some minimalist style to their design.
What’s your ideal dining chair style?
When choosing dining chairs, comfort and durability are two important details to think of. Style is on the list too. Try to picture the ideal dining room. What does it look like? Get inspired with all those amazing vidaXL choices. We have dining chairs that fit an array of interior styles.
A modern design features fine lines, minimalist shapes, and neutral colours. At vidaXL you can find beautiful dining chairs that fit into your modern dining room. From our cantilever chairs to swivel dining chairs, there are plenty of options.
We have faux leather chairs in soft shades, with metal or wooden legs. For a warmer mood, check out our rubberwood dining chairs. It’s a simple design that adds grace to your dining area. If you like a more futuristic mood, take a look at our zigzag shaped dining chairs in bold colours.
A Scandi dining area is a light and classic space to use daily. The organic shapes of the Scandinavian dining chairs provide comfort and style. See our dining chairs with armrests and upholstered in soft fabric. Or you can go for a set of dining chairs in brighter colours, without armrests and with beech wood legs.
Those who appreciate a rustic interior design will love our white solid rubberwood or solid oak dining chairs. Their beautiful look comes from the dense grains of the wood. At the same time, the intricate design of the backrest reminds us of the lovely cottage atmosphere. For a powerful farmhouse interior, we recommend our wooden Batavia chairs in white. They’re so stylish, matching your dream décor!
If you’re into the 60s nostalgia, we’ve got you covered. Find plenty of retro models of dining chairs at vidaXL. From rattan, with simple lines that follow natural shapes, retro dining chairs really stand out. If you go for the right colour scheme, our plastic dining chairs easily fit a retro décor. Their organic shape and wooden legs create the right interior vibe.
Which materials are better for your dining chairs?
We know how important the material of your ideal dining chairs is. That’s why we have plenty of options to choose from. Take a look at the most popular materials used for building the amazing vidaXL dining chairs.
Wooden dining chairs
Most furniture is made from wood because this is such a timeless choice and design. vidaXL’s wooden dining chairs will open up the space in your dining area. They will bring light and warmth, while being durable. Sturdy and durable, wooden dining chairs come in various shades, depending on the material.
Solid teak and acacia dining chairs have a lighter shade. Solid mango wood is a more exotic option, with its grainy texture. Then there’s solid, sanded rubberwood. For a truly unique set of dining chairs, see those made from solid reclaimed wood that has been sourced from old fishing boats.
Fabric dining chairs
As mentioned before, dining chairs upholstered in fabric are super comfy. The materials used are high-quality and easy to clean. With a variety of colours, you can choose a colour scheme that suits your preferred style. We always use durable fabric that’s also soft to touch.
Artificial leather dining chairs
An eco-friendly material, faux leather is super popular among fabrics used for building fancy dining chairs. Faux leather looks and feels amazing, providing the comfort needed for enjoying a lovely dinner.
Easy to clean and maintain, faux leather dining chairs fit in most interior styles, from modern to industrial. Opt for strong colours to make a statement or go for lighter shades or a combination of two colours. If you like a more masculine vibe, pick dining chairs made of faux suede leather in dark brown.
Plastic dining chairs
Plastic is a wonderful choice for dining chairs. Both modern and cheerful, vidaXL plastic dining chairs will change your dining mood. Made of polypropylene, these chairs are durable and sturdy, and super easy to clean. The variety of colours available allows you to mix and match different shades for a bright dining décor.
How to choose the right size for your dining chairs?
Looking into the ideal size for your dining chairs is something you need to do before purchase. Follow our tips and tricks for the right size:
Seat height. For comfortable seating, the height of your chair must match the height of your dining table. Most dining chairs have a standard seat height from the ground of about 45 cm. Bar chairs are of course the exception to this rule.
Width. To get it right, you need to measure the size of your dining table and decide on the number of chairs you want to have. With a standard 40 to 50 cm width, your chair should have a minimum of 15 cm around, for elbow room.
Armrest dimensions. If you choose dining chairs with armrests, make sure you keep 18 cm from the armrest to the tabletop. For a beautiful visual effect, your chairs should fit under the tabletop.

Tips for cleaning your dining chairs
No matter which type of dining chair you choose from vidaXL, we’re sure you’ll enjoy them for a long time. To make this happen, we only offer high-quality materials that are also easy to maintain.
Plastic chairs and those made of faux leather take only simple routine cleaning. Dust them off with a damp cloth on occasions. In case of a spill, make sure to use the damp cloth to wipe the spill off.
Dining chairs upholstered in fabric need the same kind of care. Dust them off with a dry cloth to keep the fabric looking fresh. We recommend doing the same for wooden chairs. Your fabric chairs need a bit more care when you spill something. All you need is a damp cloth and a mild cleaning solution. Remember to blow-dry to help it return to its initial look.
The coolest colours for dining chairs
If we look at some of the most popular colours for dining chairs, the colour scheme follows some of this year’s trends. Based on our customers’ preferences, these are some options to think about.
Grey dining chairs. Such a versatile colour, grey comes in various shades. People love grey dining chairs because they perfectly match every interior style. Plus, you can pair grey chairs with any other colour, and they’ll stand out.
Black chairs. Black’s a classic. It’s bold and timeless. Black dining chairs are perfect for modern dining décor. They work very well in an industrial setup too. Combined with metal legs or faux leather upholstery, vidaXL’s black dining chairs are gorgeous.
White dining chairs. Can you already picture them in a cottage inspired dining room? Of course! But white dining chairs are so stylish, they’re perfect for many other styles too. From modern to farmhouse, your white chairs will brighten up the space.
Coloured dining chairs. We have so many models of dining chairs in various colours. From lime green to wine red or happy yellow. Go for an eclectic dining room combining different colours with neutrals.
Tips for styling your dining chairs
Use cushions to make your dining chairs stand out. Go for colourful ones for your wooden chairs or pick some floral patterns if you want a farmhouse look.
Mix and match different shapes or colours. Or even materials. Wooden dining chairs in white go great with rattan chairs. Brown faux leather chairs will pair nicely with dining chairs upholstered in fabric, in neutral shades.
Be creative! Add a dining bench on one side of the table in a different style than your dining chairs. This way, you’ll create a beautiful focal point in your dining area.
