New Dining Room Chairs

 I said last week that I got a totally different chair style for our dining room than the first set I ordered. 

Here's the upholstered, tufted dining chairs that I ordered the first time around (and that are now back at overstock because the legs kept snapping in half). 



And here are the new dining chairs. Or one of them anyway. 



Very different from the first style, which were really traditional. I loved those and they were so pretty and comfortable (except for the fact that they couldn't keep their legs). But I'm really really loving how this more modern/retro style looks with the table. I also like that they are so much less bulky so the table doesn't feel crowded like it did with the other chairs. 

Rob is a little unsure of these chairs. I had to show him several photos like this one to prove to him that they are cool.


Can't wait to post photos of them around the table. I'm waiting till that's done though so you get the full effect. The glass for the top of the table is on it's way so hopefully in about a week the room should be done! {Fingers crossed}

  4. You know what, I have been thinking about getting these chairs from Overstock these past few days and boom, you got them before I do! I love the traditional ones as well but I am afraid of spills. Looking forward to see your new chairs in your dining room!

    By the way, did you get to see my son's finished room? Stop by and check it out if you haven't!

    1. You should get them! I am so happy with how they look. And like you said, I love that I don't have to worry about spills. I actually found mine at Amazon and they were a little cheaper than the ones at overstock so unless you have coupons you may want to check Amazon first.

    2. Thanks for the heads up, Brooke. When I am ready to take the plunge, I will check the ones at Amazon first! :)

  8. They are totally different, but I love them! I did the same thing with my husband about our dining room chairs, he had to see the choices and then make the decision. Glad yours worked out!! :)

    1. Thanks Sara! And yeah, that's what I usually have to do with Rob- I show him photos of how something will look and then I usually throw in something like "...and everybody who's anybody has these..." lol

  9. Hey Brooke! I just read your stripes on a bowl post and got a peek of your new dining chairs so I had to go back and see if I missed your dining room reveal! I'm actually looking at the exact same chairs for my dining room! I recently finished re-upholstering the louis chairs but now feel they are too formal for my space. I'm loving the laid-back, modern feel of these chairs and am thinking of going with black if we keep the white glass table or white if we switch to a wooden table. I'm so torn. I can't wait to see your reveal! Hopefully it will help me decide :)

    1. I think you will be so happy with that plan! I loved the upholstered chairs I originally got for in here, but they were really formal looking, just like you are feeling about your chairs. I seriously can't say enough how much I LOVE the look of these chairs. They look super stylish and trendy and at the same time relaxed and laid back. I am dying to post pictures!! I'm just waiting on the glass for the top of the table; the second that gets here it's going to be picture overload on here!
