The Best Cane Dining Chairs In Every Design, Style and Trend

Lifestyle expert, journalist and interior design blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on 21 of the best cane dining chairs in a variety of top design styles and trends.

 

My obsession with cane furniture started in my youth! It was a staple in my grandparents’ home and is still beloved by my mother to this day. Over the last year, I have marveled at just how popular cane furniture has become, especially cane chairs! I am head over heels in love with this style armchair and can’t get enough of gorgeous cane dining chairs, especially black-framed chairs with natural cane panels. This style has my heart and is beloved by many. In fact, it’s been so popular that it’s been hard to come by. That’s no surprise though, everything is hard to come by this year not just due to popularity but shortages. We live in a climate where if something is on your wish list, it’s not wise to wait for a sale, you should grab it while you can as you don’t know if it will be restocked.

Cane dining chairs are perfect for every home! They come in a wide array of styles – from modern black to French Louis XVI inspired. With the holidays quickly approaching, now is a great time to shop for the perfect set of dining chairs or a couple of chairs for your bistro table! Beautiful cane dining chairs will make a statement in any home and are sure to garner compliments from family and friends. They’ll look great around an inviting rectangular dining table or a beautiful round pedestal dining table! There are so many options.

Today, I’m excited to share 21 of the best cane dining chairs in a wide array of styles, colors, and price ranges. I hope you love them as much as I do!

 

Black Cane Dining Chairs

My obsession with black cane dining chairs is strong! I can’t get enough of the extremely popular and absolutely gorgeous square back Pottery Barn Lisbon Dining Chair! It is available in “brushed ebony” and “toasted nettlewood.” I adore them both! I love that they’re stackable, making them easy to store when not in use.
