10 Best Eichholtz Dining Chairs and Why We Love Them

We all know that no dining room can be complete without dining chairs. According to our designers, after the dining table, you should allocate the maximum possible amount of your budget to your dining chairs because these are products you will be physically using - so it's important to choose the right ones for a comfortable and truly enjoyable dining experience. 

We've been furnishing dining spaces for more than four decades now so we consider ourselves to be experts when it comes to choosing the right dining chairs. If you're on the hunt, here are some factors that we recommend for you to consider:

  • Comfort: One of the most critical aspects to look for is comfort. Consider factors like seat height, backrest design, and the presence of armrests. You'll spend a fair amount of time in these chairs, so they must be comfortable.
  • Size: Measure your dining table and room before you start shopping. The chairs should fit comfortably around the table with enough room for people to move around easily. Make sure that you consider the seat height in comparison to your table's height.
  • Style: Your dining chairs should complement your dining room decor and the style of your dining table. Consider the design, colour, and material that best matches your decor.
  • Durability: Look for chairs made of high-quality, durable materials that can withstand daily use. The chair's construction is also important; it should be sturdy enough not to wobble.
  • Easy to Clean: Dining chairs can get dirty quickly, so they should be easy to clean. Look for wood, metal, or leather materials, or opt for stain-resistant fabric chairs with removable, washable covers.
  • Versatility: Chairs that can serve multiple purposes are a great investment. If your chairs can also work as extra seating in the living room or a home office, you'll get more bang for your buck.
  • Budget: Determine your budget before you start shopping. Remember that while you don't want to skimp on quality, great options are available at various price points.
  • Sustainability: If this is important, consider the materials and manufacturing process used to create the dining chairs. Look for sustainably sourced materials, low-impact manufacturing processes, and companies with good labour practices.

If you ask us to recommend one brand for dining chairs, Eichholtz will surely be at the top of the list as their dining chairs check all of the above boxes. 

Eichholtz is a well-known Dutch brand that is renowned for its luxurious and elegant furniture, including a wide range of dining chairs. 

The Eichholtz dining chair collection encompasses a range of styles, from modern to classic, and materials like velvet, leather, and linen. The chairs often feature unique design elements like tufted backs, nailhead trim, or unique metal work on the legs and frame. The colour palette tends to be neutral, including shades of black, white, grey, and beige, but you can also find some more vibrant options.

It's important to note that Eichholtz furniture, including their dining chairs, is positioned at the higher end of the market, reflecting the brand's commitment to quality, design, and luxury.

While the brand offers more than 100 different dining chairs, below we've made a list of some of the most popular ones, including those that our designers love using in their projects. 

1 - Cooper (Set of 2 Savona Nude Velvet Chairs)

Available as a set of 2 dining chairs, these are perfect for modern Mid-century style spaces. The defining feature of these chairs is the black piping that runs around the back and seat fabric, giving it a very comic-inspired look. The tapered black legs are finished off with brass caps for an opulent style. 

These chairs are available in multiple colours and while Savona nude velvet is our favourite, we also love mixing up different shades for a truly unique dining space. 

2 - Cliff (Set of 2 Savona Blue Velvet Chairs)

Transform your dining area into the most stunning space with the Cliff Dining Chair, available in a set of two.

Each chair features tapered black legs that angle outwards and have gold-capped ends, paired with an elegant Savona Blue velvet upholstery.

The chairs are designed with armless backs that open towards the base, just above the seat. If you're buying the chairs for an open-plan dining space that also has a bar or kitchen island, then we highly recommend pairing these with the Cliff bar stools. Here are some more of our favourite matching dining chair and bar stool sets.

3 - Grenada Grey Velvet Swivel Dining Chair

This stunning vintage-inspired chair showcases sleek black legs that narrow down to gold-tipped ends and a swivel seat adorned in Savona grey velvet. With its nod to Mid-Century Modern aesthetics, this dining chair will infuse a charming, old-world allure into your dining space or kitchen.

4 - Filmore - Wine Red Chairs

Another stunning dining chair by Eichholtz that too is hugely inspired by vintage design elements. Filmore comes in a range of colours but Wine Red is a favourite at our showroom as it instantly catches the eye and elevates any space where it is placed. 

5 - Clubhouse (Brushed Brass Finish)

The brushed brass finish and bouclé cream upholstery work together with the clean-lined design to give this chair a grand and luxurious look. A standout feature of this chair is how the backrest seamlessly blends into the armrests - this is not just a visual treat but also makes this chair incredibly comfortable. 

6 - Cardinale (Clarck Sand Dining Chair with Arms)

Cardinale features a generously sized seat, curved back and armrests - all of which make it incredibly comfortable for long meals and conversations. The chair is completely upholstered in fabric, making it ideal for both Scandinavian and modern aesthetics. 

7 - Dexter

This dining chair's light and airy structure makes it best suited for smaller dining areas where it creates the illusion of a larger space. Another reason many interior designers love this chair is because of its versatility - it looks as elegant next to a home office table as it does in the dining space.

8 - Colony

While you might find many different cane dining chairs in the market, we're sure none would be as durable and good-looking as the Colony dining chair. Handcrafted by skilled European artisans, this is a chair that will be with you for many decades.

Despite being made in cane, Colony does not compromise on comfort in any way and it even comes in a version with armrests. 

9 - Bristol (Pistache Green Velvet)

This chair is a prime example of 'aesthetics meet functionality' as it offers plenty of comfortable seating space and an eye-catching design. 

If you have a neutral-coloured space, the green velvet version of these chairs would be perfect to add a pop of colour to it without going overboard.

The sculpted back is the defining feature of this chair, making it one of our top picks when it comes to unique dining chairs. 

10 - Bermuda Black Blend Dining Chair

The traditional, classic dining chair design gets an upgrade with Bermuda, which features a curved back and polished nickel studs around the edging. Our designers love this chair because of how easily it pairs with any dining table and interior style. 

When you start your hunt for luxury dining chairs, you might feel overwhelmed by the various options, many of which will be too tempting to resist. But there are two things that you must remember - firstly, your dining chairs will contribute the most towards the comfort and warmth of your dining area and secondly, you don't buy new dining chairs too often so you must go for strong, durable and well-made chairs from a reputable, trustworthy brand.

Eichholtz dining chairs are used and recommended by all our interior designers because of their high quality materials, contemporary designs, luxurious upholstery and finishes, and unmatched comfort. If you're interested in buying any of the above chairs at an unbeatable price or if you want to consider other options, just book an appointment and one of our expert designers will be in touch with you.
