For a dining room that adds a touch of French country flair, a little shabby chic or a dollop of Rococo, there are a number of different dining room chairs that you can choose from. Your home should feel special and represent your personality. When you are revamping your dining room, think about which design best suits you, your family and its needs. Is your dining room simply for looks or are you after functionality?


The French country style includes a lot of natural woods with checked fabrics of mostly blue and green and maybe yellow. These colours are a great way to bring the French provincial feel inside your home. The wood will have a natural distressed and antique look. Add some fresh flowers for the final touch and a few tin antiques and your dining room will be the epitome of French country.

Shabby chic has a way of looking old and antique without having to put much effort into it. For a brighter, airier room, shabby chic will lighten up this space with just a few touches. Shabby chic is all about whites and distressed furniture. If you’ve opted for this style of dining room, choose a bright colour scheme of whites and ivories and pair them with flowery tones such as light blues and greens. With linen curtains and a white distressed table, you’ll want to add a white-framed chair with a floral print fabric. For your room of mostly white, the floral fabric will add a stunning accent to complement the entire design.

French Rococo incorporates fine pieces of furniture that exemplify luxury with gold finishings and intricately embroidered fabrics. A Louis antique style chair is the best way to represent this style of French design. For this look, decorate your room with other ornate, gold touches and pastel blues, pinks and yellows. With your theme of luxury and effortless elegance, an antique style chair will liven up your dining room whether you are using it or just gazing at it.

If you aren’t sure about which theme to go with, you could mix match your French style dining chairs and create a whole new look altogether. If you want something that is tasteful and traditional with something extra, mix your designs and get creative.
