Depending on the color scheme, era and overall theme of your dining room, a set of dining chairs in cherry may be the best option for you. Most cherry dining room chairs are made to last, so you should be prepared to drop more than a little cash on them.
This great department store carries the Monteray Wood Side Chair, which goes for $840. This chair is made out of pure cherry wood and comes with an optional espresso finish. The American made chair measures 16 inches deep by 18 inches tall.
For a more affordable cherry dining chair, pick out the Stakmore Queen Anne Style Folding Chair from Chefs. This one regularly costs $178, but you can buy it now for only $126. This foldable cherry chair offers a much classier alternative to your typical metal folding chair and makes for a great option for large dinner parties or banquets. The chair has a premium upholstered seat and a slim 7 1/4 inch depth when folded. Even if you never choose to fold it up, however, you'll still love it for its classic Queen Anne look and its durable feel.
The Vermont based furniture store Ethan Allen sells a solid and simple cherry chair in the American Artisan Payton Side Chair, which leaves the store for $299. The chair is in the Shaker style and has a spindle back with a contoured seat, which measures 18 1/2 inches tall, which is perfect for a lower dining table.
Design Within Reach
If you're more interested in a modern cherry dining chair, consider the Navy Armchair with Wood Seat from Design Within Reach. This $750 chair was designed by Emeco for the U.S. Navy and has a carved wood seat, a recycled aluminum body and a military grade construction designed to last 150 years.
