Initial Concept

The concept for the Olivia dining chairs was family - beautiful statement pieces to accompany the Olivia dining table, creating a dining space to share a meal and stories of the day, a place to connect and relax. The design welcomes the entire family to pull up a seat, stay a while and simply be together. 

The initial idea for the Olivia dining chairs combines form and function, is true to the Scandi design IconByDesign is known for, while keeping up our proud tradition of valuing authenticity of materials to craft quality furniture, designed for living.

Sourcing of Materials

We work hard to ensure that we’re always producing sustainable furniture. For example, the solid American oak which makes up the bulk of the Olivia dining chairs is sourced from American forests which embrace sustainable principles - meaning the wood is sustainably harvested, works to restore the ecosystem, implements a replanting process, undertakes consistent environmental monitoring, and respects the land rights of indigenous peoples.

We also use oak because it's hardy and it lasts - it has a natural strength which makes it ideal for the interior home environment. Unlike veneered furniture, there's less damage from wear and tear so you don't have to throw it out to replace it with something equally replaceable.

Our solid wood furniture is a provider of carbon storage and therefore has a positive effect on the planet by containing carbon, and its regrowth in sustainable managed forests adds to the carbon emission reduction. 

By crafting our solid American oak furniture, such as the Olivia dining chairs, from wood we are doing the best we can on the planet - making pieces that last through the generations and rejecting the tread of flat-pack, cheap, disposable, replaceable veneer furniture.

What to Furnish With

Create your sanctuary: match your Olivia dining chairs with the Olivia dining table and the Olivia armchair for easy flow and the perfect space to relax in. Accessorize your Olivia dining combination of chairs and table with tablecloths and table runners in natural fibers, dinnerware in neutral tones, and candles to bring in warmth for a truly Scandi-inspired dining experience. 

Our Olivia dining table is constructed from solid American oak with strong, cylindrical legs neatly aligned to the curve of the table top. The Olivia table melds a playful, casual edge into her smooth, modern, Scandinavian-inspired design. Bring the soft, warm tones and smooth, velvety texture of the Olivia Table into the heart of your home and enjoy the effortless lifestyle Olivia creates. With the right care, the Olivia Table is long-lasting and will remain a fixture for years to come.
