Concierge Request

We're looking for counter-height dining chairs. We'd prefer them to be partially upholstered or fully upholstered. Grey is the preferred color with some light walnut accents or finish. Not too bulky in size. The seat back should be the normal height (no mini/small backs). No arms on the chair. Would be open to a matching bench for one side of the table as well.

Top pick - Modern and Minimal

Love these chairs! My fiancé and I were searching for something modern, yet comfortable enough to sit on for every meal and not become uncomfortable. Look great in our home.

Nice bar stools, hold up well- they don’t pill. Great modern look.The only negative reviews we could found were around assembly.  They might be challenging to put together.

  • Reviews: Avg. 4.8 stars (82 reviews)

Amazing quality and craftsmanship! They are exactly what we had hoped for.

Excellent quality chair. Fabric is nice and tight and swivel is smooth. Only minor issue is the swivel does not return to center, so you have to straighten out the chairs all the time. No big deal, I would buy them anyways.
