20 Best Chippendale Dining Chairs You’ll Love

Lifestyle expert, journalist and interior design blogger Candie Anderson of candieanderson.com has the scoop on 20 of the best Chinoiserie Chippendale dining chairs in white, gray, blue and black! They are perfect for any dining room regardless of style.

 

 

The timeless Chippendale chair was created by acclaimed London cabinet designer, Thomas Chippendale in the 18th century, and is beloved to this day. While I adore the classic style, my obsession with the Chinoiserie-inspired Chippendale Chair, (or the “chinoiserie style” in general) has been going strong for decades. Like many of you, I love watching “The Golden Girls” reruns. Not only do Blanche, Dorothy, Rose, and Sophia bring me joy, but their Palm Beach home and those fabulous white Chippendale dining chairs (around their glass kitchen table) do too!

In 2008 I started my first blog when the recession started and many were looking to DIY vintage furniture. Chinoiserie-inspired Chippendale chairs (and Chippendale dining chairs) were all the rage and were taking social media and lifestyle publications by storm. I searched high and low for the perfect white bamboo Chippendale chair on Craigslist, estate sales, and yard sales, but had no luck! Thankfully today Chinoiserie-inspired Chippendale dining chairs are available online at your favorite retailers!

Over the last year or so, I’ve followed many entertainers and event planners on social media, and excited to see that Chippendale dining chairs are making a comeback, come in a variety of colors and are better than ever! They really make a statement around a round or rectangular dining table and are the perfect addition to any tablescape! While Chippendale dining chairs are perfect for the Palm Beach inspired abode, they’re also a must for the coastal, classic, tropical, and contemporary coastal lover! With the “coastal grandmother” interior design trend more popular than ever now is a great time to invest in a set of Chippendale dining chairs that you and your family will adore for years to come.

Without further ado, here are 22 of the best and most gorgeous Chinoiserie-inspired Chippendale dining chairs in a variety of styles, colors, and price ranges!
