Create Ambience with Solid Wood Mid-Century Scandinavian Dining Chairs

There are few objects that can create an ambience the same way natural wood furniture can. Solid wood dining chairs have a unique aesthetic, feel, and even smell. If you wish to add a timeless element to your kitchen or dining room, wooden Mid-Century Modern Scandinavian dining chairs should be your first choice.

However, even when you know you want solid wood dining chairs in your home, you still need to find the type that perfectly complements your style. Do you prefer dark American walnut or light American oak? Wood dining chairs with leather or organic fabric upholstery? All of our dining room furniture is artisan-made from solid wood and natural materials, so it is up to you to choose the aesthetic and we will provide the quality.

The Characteristics of Solid Wood Dining Chairs

Each solid wood dining chair is unique because it embodies the specific tree it was made from, including the natural wood grain, color, and tone variance. That is why solid wood is so sought after - every piece of furniture is made from wood acquired directly from felled trees, allowing it to have the same structure all the way through, in turn giving it its durability.

This is in opposition to furniture made from engineered wood - a derivative product made by binding or fixing wood particles, fibers, strands, or veneers to get the composite material out of which the furniture is made. And because the difference between engineered and solid wood is so vast, the Federal Trade Commission prohibits the advertising of furniture as made of ‘solid wood’ unless all exposed surfaces are made from it.

In part due to being made from solid wood and in part due to the attention paid to the crafting of each piece, our solid wood dining room chairs are extremely durable and distinctive. Additionally, as solid wood is a natural material, it prevents the accumulation of electrostatic dust charges and has antiallergenic and antibacterial properties. In short, Scandinavian solid wood dining chairs are the perfect blend of style, longevity, and practicality.

Maintaining Wooden Dining Chairs

One of the best characteristics of solid wood dining chairs is that they are easy to maintain. They are made to last and can be passed down from generation to generation. Yet, that does not mean you should invest no energy into their care. Make sure to:

  • Regularly clean them with clean cotton or microfiber cloth to avoid dust build-up, which can trap moisture and accelerate the aging process.
  • Liquid can cause the finish to lift off and cause white or foggy spots. If you spill water or other liquids, do not let it soak through the wood finish but simply wipe it off.
  • Avoid exposing your wooden dining chairs to direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time, as direct sunlight can darken furniture and even lead to small cracks.
  • Try to keep a consistent level of humidity in your dining room or kitchen; solid wood is a natural material so it will expand in a humid environment and contract in a dry one. Some degree of expansion and contraction is normal, but extreme variances can cause permanent damage.

The Design Elements of Scandinavian and Mid-Century Modern Dining Chairs

Scandinavian design incorporates minimalist elements and intends to combine functionality with beauty. The focus of Scandinavian design is on using natural materials to create durable, comfortable, and purposeful pieces of furniture, typically in neutral colors. It originated in the 1930s in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Iceland and rose to prominence in the 1950s.

Mid-Century Modern usually refers to the style that emerged in the USA during the 1930s and 1940s; it is characterized by an elegant design with clean lines and also focuses on beauty in simplicity. However, Mid-Century Modern design utilizes more vibrant color schemes and man-made materials, like metal and glass. Yet, Mid-Century Modern did not look the same everywhere - it was influenced by the region where it was applied.

That is why our Mid-Century Modern Scandinavian dining chairs are crafted from all-natural materials, feature clean lines with minimal decorative elements, focus on elegance and functionality, and provide optimal comfort. You can choose ones made from solid American oak or walnut and upholstered with leather or natural fabrics.
