Dining Chair Styles

Traditional-style dining room chairs come in a variety of styles. Here's a look at six of the most common.

Windsor style is an early English style characterized by stick legs and spindles driven into the seat. Variations include bow back and hoop back.

Queen Anne-style is based on an 18th-century style. Chairs in this style are recognizable by the shaped crest rail at the top of the back and the urn-shape splat (center back support).

Regency or Empire style is also known as Duncan Phyfe. This 19th-century style features a scroll back, squared top, and saber legs. This basic chair has been copied often in the 20th century.

Midcentury style refers to mid-20th century designs for the modern houses of the period. This style includes wishbone chairs, Eames molded plastic chairs, Tolix chairs, and Ghost chairs. 

Chippendale style is based on an 18th-century British design. The chairs are noted for elaborate splats, and may also include ball-and-claw feet.

Ladder-back (or Shaker-style) chairs feature slat backs. They are often associated with country furniture. The seat may be woven from rush or tape.
