Delightful Dining Chairs

January 7, 2022

When many people first visit our Design Warehouse showroom in Parnell, they are immediately struck by the sheer volume of dining chairs we have available. Crafted from everything from Grade-A teak wood to outdoor wicker, rope and aluminium, we really do have something for every outdoor dining setting – and they are built to last.

We suggest starting by deciding on what feel or style you want your outdoor dining space to have — moody and luxe, airy and coastal, colourful and contemporary – and then read on for some of our most popular suggestions…


Terrific Teak Dining Chairs

Emily Chair With Cushion

Emily Reclaimed Teak Wood Dining Chair

We love Grade-A teak and reclaimed teak for our outdoor dining chairs, both of which never fail to add a gentle luxury that lasts to any space. The Emily Reclaimed Teak Dining Arm Chair is a beautiful piece, with a silhouette that encourages you to pause and admire the craftsmanship and nuanced details. Rounded edges paired with fluid lines offer a timeless approach to design, while the warmth of reclaimed teak wood allows for a feel that is soft and engaging.

Our Peanut Grade-A Teak Dining Chair is another classic design that is casual, cool and perfect for summer outdoor dining. The rounded back and tub style make it inviting and relaxed, while vertical slats give it a nautical vibe which is immediately timeless. This premium Grade-A teak dining chair is perfect for residential and commercial use too, due its sturdy design and solid weight. Create the ultimate teak dining set with several Peanut Chairs and one of our robust and grand teak dining tables.

If you’re looking for wooden dining chairs that can be easily packed away when necessary, our stackable and foldable options are first class. The elegant Horizon stacking chair in Grade-A teak can be stacked for easy storage, and is extremely comfortable with a modern contemporary look. Also incredibly comfortable, the Como Folding Side Chair has a gentle curve in the back and seat for lower back support and is compatible with a variety of our Grade-A Teak dining tables. So convenient and perfect for when unexpected guests arrive, place eight of these beauties along the sides of the Large Hampton Table, with the Como Arm Chair at each head for a statement in style. Even better? Como chairs can be easily stored when not needed, opening up smaller al fresco spaces with ease.

Wonderful Woven Dining Chairs

A study in European chic, our Nairobi Woven Dining Armchair is incredibly chic and delivers a truly zen-like feel. With its gorgeously wide, low profile, this dining chair is a great choice for any table you may love, indoors or out. Made with Ecolene polypropylene weaves in the colour black, with black powder-coated steel framing, it is strong and durable plus easy to clean with just a wash of water and mild soap and a rinse.

If contemporary chic is part of your design brief, you can’t go past a date with the Panama Dining Arm Chair. A brilliantly stylish and confident dining chair that mixes modern and contemporary with the highest quality premium materials, it is completely unique and a style icon in its own right. Crafted from powder-coated aluminium in a darkened bronze shade, it features a taupe Sunbrella® cushioned seat and back, which seems to be crafted as a single piece. Slim in silhouette but built to withstand the elements, it is also incredibly comfortable and the perfect height for dining tables. For those who love contemporary or modern, or just want a cool, comfortable and lightweight outdoor dining chair, the Panama Dining Arm Chair is the dream solution.

Lastly, our plastic outdoor dining chairs are anything but ordinary.
