Meet the icons of retro dining chairs

Vintage dining chairs are among the most versatile pieces you could possibly find – and the archives of iconic designs provide a plethora of excellent choices. Designed by Hans J. Wegner for Carl Hansen & Søn, the Wishbone chair – also known as the CH24 chair – is an excellent example of the ingenuity characteristic to modern Danish design. 

Providing the comfort and support necessary for vintage dining chairs, the clever Y-shaped back gave Wegner’s Wishbone chair its characteristic name. Wegner’s decision to combine the back- and armrest into a single piece resulted in the distinctive form of the CH24 chair. The hand-woven seat alone is the result of truly skilled craftsmanship, which makes the Carl Hansen & Søn Wishbone chair a long-lasting design icon.

First introduced in 1859 and designed by Czech cabinetmaker Michael Thonet, the vintage TON Chair no. 14 has proven itself a timeless favourite when it comes to retro dining chairs. Due to its popularity in Viennese coffee houses, Chair no. 14 soon came to be known as the “café chair”. Resulting in a light yet strong wooden structure, the classic Chair no. 14 by TON consists of six beechwood rods that have been bent by hand. With 80 million units sold worldwide, Chair no. 14 might be just the thing when you’re looking for old dining chairs.

Make a statement with mix and match seating

There’s no doubt about it – you’re the number one expert when it comes to choosing vintage dining chairs that make you swoon. Keeping things simple and symmetrical may feel like a tempting option, but sometimes playful choices make all the difference – and gently used dining chairs are no exception.

We know what you’re thinking: what does it take to pull off the mix and match look successfully? Careful planning is key, as you’ve got an endless amount of combinations to choose from. Keep it calm and collected with a set of used dining chairs in a similar colour scheme, or opt for the same vintage chair in different tones. If you want to go all-in on bold vibes, mix things up with vintage dining chairs in contrasting materials, or recruit the help of retro dining chairs in an array of vibrant colours.
