Following up on last week’s post on Shopping with Rex Kelly: Dining Tables, Part Deux, today we’re going shopping for dining room chairs. While most of the tables we found did have having chairs, I kind of think it’s a bit boring and quotidian.
On that note, let’s go shopping!
marais a chair
The classic cafe chair, perfect for those who want an industrial-chic chair that looks beautiful on their patios and their U-boats. The chair was designed in 1934 by metalworker Xavier Pauchard, whose talent with metal and design produced this lovely galvanized steel chair.
It’s available in lots of colors and in a perforated design as well, would look great in an indoor/outdoor kitchen or on the patio.

Available at Design within Reach in Mint, Plum, White or Gunmetal Grey. $250
moller arm chair 55
If you’re a fan of Danish Modern furniture, especially those who worked with wood like Hans Wegner and Jens Risom, you might enjoy the work of this designer as well. His name’s Niels Otto Moller and he designed this side chair in 1944. The full collection of arm chairs, side chairs and benches was just acquired last year by Design within Reach for production, so hopefully we’ll be seeing more of these beautiful chairs in the months of years to come.

emeco us navy chair
I just featured the Emeco US Navy Chair in this week’s Design Notebook, but I wanted to list it here, because it really is a classically-beautiful cafe chair. It’s also great for U-Boats…just sayin.

hans wegner wishbone chair
If there’s an iconic mid-century modern dining chair, Hans Wegner’s Wishbone Chair would definitely be a contender.

eames molded dining chair- dcm
I mention Eames all the time here, but I haven’t talked much about this particular chair, although it’s one of my favorite versions of Eames’ molded dining chairs. This one is the molded wood the wire base.
It’s a classic choice for dining room chairs and it’s easy to see why…
