Eight Regency Set Chairs For Sale on 1stDibs

There is a range of eight regency set chairs for sale on 1stDibs. The range of distinct eight regency set chairs — often made from wood, mahogany and fabric — can elevate any home. Eight regency set chairs have been made for many years, and versions that date back to the 18th Century alongside those produced as recently as the 20th Century. Eight regency set chairs made by Hollywood Regency designers — as well as those associated with Regency — are very popular at 1stDibs. Chesterfield, Mastercraft and Brown Jordan each produced beautiful eight regency set chairs that are worth considering.

How Much are Eight Regency Set Chairs?

Eight regency set chairs can differ in price owing to various characteristics — the average selling price at 1stDibs is $8,750, while the lowest priced sells for $850 and the highest can go for as much as $33,000.

Finding the Right Dining Room Chairs for You

No matter what your dream dining experience looks like, 1stDibs has upholstered dining-room chairs, wood dining-room chairs and more to outfit any space designated for a good meal, be it in your home or in the great outdoors.

In the early 18th century, most dining-room furniture was designed to look masculine. In America, dining rooms weren’t even much of a concept until the late 1700s, when a space set aside specifically for dining became a part of the construction of homes for the wealthy. Dining-room chairs of the era were likely made of walnut or oak. In Europe, neoclassical dining chairs emerged during the 1750s owing to nostalgia for classical antiquity, while the curving chair crests of Queen Anne furniture in the United States preceded the artistically bold seat backs that characterized the Chippendale chairs that followed. If there weren't enough dining chairs at suppertime in the American colonies, men were prioritized and women stood.

Dining rooms of today, however, allow space for people of any gender to have a seat at the table. Modern styles introduce innovative design choices that play with shape and style. Icons of mid-century modern dining-room chairs are plentiful: With its distinctive bentwood back, there is the DCW dining chair by Charles and Ray Eames, while Hans Wegner's timeless classic, the Wishbone chair, remains relevant and elegant decades after its debut. Stefano Giovannoni's White Rabbit dining chairs, in their lovable polyethylene biomorphism, reinvent what dining can look like.

Today's wide range of dining-room chairs also means that they can now be styled in different ways, bringing functionality and fun to any dining space. No longer do tables have to be accompanied by a matching set of seats. Skillfully mixing and matching colors and designs allows you to showcase your personality without sacrificing the cohesion of a given space.

By furnishing your dining room with cozy chairs — vintage, antique or otherwise — family time can extend far beyond mealtime. The plush upholstery of Victorian-style dining-room chairs is perfect for game nights that stretch from dinner to midnight snack. Outdoor tables and dining chairs can also present an excellent opportunity for bonding and eating — what goes better with a delicious meal than fresh air, anyway?

Whether you prefer your chairs streamlined and stackable or ornate and one of a kind, the offerings on 1stDibs will elevate your mealtime and beyond.
