Chairs to go with rustic table

strayerdarbMarch 2, 2014

Hi! For our kitchen table we have a large rustic pine plank table with trestle base that we love, but we don't love the matching pine chairs with rush seating.

We're going to sell or give away the chairs and I'd like to put more contemporary (but not too out there) chairs with the table.

Does anyone have this kind of set up and maybe could share a picture? I don't have a picture of my table right now, but I will try to get one soon.

Going out of town for a couple of days and I'll check here for responses when I get back.

Thanks!!

Maybe you could post a picture of your table. I like this combo but not sure if its the direction you are thinking.

Yes, just what zeitgast suggests - painted white or colored windsor chairs are a great look with a distressed pine table. In our summer house, we have a pine table and these chairs - a little more formal.

I'm out of town right now so I don't have a picture. It's a very large table with 6 chairs. I wax it rather than have a poly finish on it. Painted chairs would look really nice with some pretty cushions. I'm tired of rush seating because it gets torn up too easily. I'll start looking. Thanks!

Canuckplayer - thanks so much! They are from Ethan Allen. The club chairs are in blue leather and the other chairs are upholstered in fabric. They are really comfortable!

Great advice. I think a windsor style chair or some version of that kind of a style, painted, will look nice. When I post my reveal they should be in place.

Target. $80 for a set of 2. And the stack for any extras to get out of the way.

I Love/like my Pottery barn chairs. They come painted too. They have ladder-back and other styles.

My g/f asked when I am replacing my very old kitchen table, now that kitchen is more modern. I guess I'm just attached to it.

These might be a little more modern than you'd like, but I think they go nicely with all kinds of tables. My table looks modern in this shot, but the top is a distressed chestnut, and the chairs look great with it.
