Vermont is known for the quality, variety and style of it’s handmade solid wood dining chairs. As we fill our new Stonehurst showroom up with furniture, Douglas is trying to provide lots of different examples of chair styles and woods. We have 37 different dining chairs on our website and most of them are available in a couple different types of hardwood. The best sellers are available for you to sit in and check for comfort and style.
I snapped this photo because it shows the 4 most popular hardwoods for dining chairs and customers often ask for advice on how to choose the best one. From left, the chairs are the:
You can see that the cherry wood chair (far left) has a deep, rich reddish tone whereas the darker walnut chair (3rd from left) is chocolate brown in color. The oak chair (2nd from left) is a lighter wood but it still has lots of grain pattern in it. The maple chair (far right) is the lightest wood, with minimal grain variation.
So how to choose the right wood color for your kitchen or dining room? Well, of course you’re going to want to consider what your dining table is made of. And how the chairs will fit into the rest of your dining area. But don’t feel you have to match the chairs to the type of wood in your dining table or on your floor. Here’s an example of mixing woods that interior designer, Susan Jay put together with our Modern High Back Dining Chairs. Susan used 2 different woods (cherry and walnut) for her chairs and she customized them by sending us a bold, vibrant fabric to upholster them with.

Are you looking for a special color or stain for your wooden dining chairs? Well as a general rule, Vermont craftsman are going to try and persuade you to love and accept the unique beauty that Mother Nature has bestowed upon her different wood species. They (and we) will tend to recommend natural, clear wood finishes that allow the beauty of the wood to express itself. We do however, understand the need for custom stains and finishes and can often accommodate special requests. Try browsing through our dining chairs — many have a pull down menu of stain options. If you don’t find what you want, give Liz or Sean for help. They’re experts at helping customers get exactly what they’re looking for.

the recent cooler nights and the realization that Labor Day is less than 2
weeks away, we're beginning to feel that summer's end is near…well, at least
in Vermont. While we know that Labor Day doesn't technically signal
the end of summer, for many it's a symbolic end as minds begin shifting to the fall.
Before we know it, the feasting holidays will soon be here! If you're
like most, this can be the time of year where you might find yourself doing a
lot of hosting, especially in the dining room. So, perhaps it's time to think
about how to make your home feast-ready for the holidays, and it's also a good
time to consider other home improvement projects.
Since dining room furniture gets
the most use and attention during the feasting holidays, this room may be a
primary focus. In between choosing, crafting, and delivering fine wood
furniture, many weeks can slip by. Crafting fine furnishings takes time, so
planning for Thanksgiving at the end of August is actually the perfect amount
While your furniture is being
crafted perhaps there are other things that you would like to do to get your dining
room ready. For instance, painting, refinishing floors or replacing carpet,
makes sense to do before your new furniture arrives.
Longing for a new set of handmade dining room furniture for your family to enjoy during the Thanksgiving holidays? Now is the time to think about it, as there is still time to have solid wood furniture custom crafted for you in time for delivery before Thanksgiving.
