DR chair suggestions

nhbaskets
February 10, 2019

Looking for suggestions of dining room chairs to use with my existing chairs when entertaining a crowd. My DR furniture is natural cherry. I have 8 chairs (6 side, 2 arm). I have another table that I add on when we have more than 8. This mostly happens on family holidays. Using card table chairs, I'm able to fit 14. So, I'm looking for recommendations for 6 chairs that would work with my existing chairs. Don't want to break the bank. These would only be used maybe 5 times per year. Looking for comfort, as we tend to sit for extended period.

My existing chairs:

This is how my DR has looked when set of 12:

The chairs at the end of the table I got from Wayfair. Not very comfortable and a pain to unfold.

    Just found these online for sale close by. Six Hitchcock chairs for $400. Thoughts? Good price?

    I like those Hitchcock chairs and think they look lovely -- what are you going to do with the chairs for most of the year? For some reason as picky as I can be, when it's a big family crowd at a holiday dinner, I don't mind card table chairs and onesies.

    Is there anyway that you can look for your current chairs and just add to? Ebay, Craigs list, etc.?

    I second checking Facebook marketplace, Craigslist sal army goodwill, etc.

    When not in use, excess chairs would be stored in the basement. Our DR chairs have a wide back, so if I were to get similar chairs, I certainly could not fit 6 extra chairs.

    Here you go. Then set up chairs every other one so they mix up.

    Another option. Great price too. Add seat cushion for additional comfort.

    36.66 ea for the Hitchcock chairs seems fairly reasonable. I like them very much. Perhaps the seller would reduce price a little.... Love your house.

    Actually, it's $66.66 each. Was thinking about offering $300.

    Measure the front edges and back top edges to see how they would fit with your existing chairs.
