Nothing beats the smooth finish of a classic wood restaurant chair when you want a timeless look. And nothing beats the durability and elegance of beech, oak, or walnut when you want class sans the stuffiness.
From a dark Kona finish, to a brightly upholstered seat, we love modern wood chairs for the warmth and comfort they can bring to any room. To celebrate a style that never dies, these are our favorite wood pieces, straight from Grand Rapids Chair.
