When you're on the hunt for perfect seating, the ideal piece can feel elusive, but if "timeless and sturdy" are words on your checklist, consider the classic Windsor chair. We've put together this shopping guide with 10 of our favorites, all with a modern slant. Read on to see the shapely seats we're eyeing lately.

LOW

If you want to capture someone's attention, do it with a dash of color. Cue these fun (and reasonably priced) dining chairs that also come as a bar stool. Mix and match colors or keep it all one shade to drench your space in happy, fresh hues.


Starting at $129

A classic chair in staple hues, this simple seat is one of the few painted options we found that also come in a natural oak finish to lend an earthy, textural vibe to your place.


Table for two? Sold as a pair, the simple, no-fuss design of these chairs sports low, curved backs and splayed legs.


This chair mixes in effortlessly with other dining chairs or pairs perfectly at your favorite desk thanks to its low-profile. Also available in a pricier chrome option, we're particularly fond of the angled back and thick, platform seat in this sleek Scandinavian take on the Windsor chair.


Compact and cute, this solid wood find from Serena & Lily comes in a variety of ultra happy hues. Offered in basic shades too, we're eyeing this pretty pick in surf, dandelion and geranium hues for a dose of color.


Our Previous Lists:


MEDIUM

The simple silhouette of this more traditional option boasts a handsome Mahogany stain and high, rounded back for a timeless design for your space.


We love the driftwood patina of this modern option, and love it even more thanks to its weather-resistant finish. Bring it outdoors or in for the perfect transition piece that's sure to add a relaxed vibe to any space.


The dramatic scale of the back coupled with rave reviews give way to a Windsor chair that can't be beat. Family-owned workshops collaborated with Crate & Barrel to give you this quintessentially American Windsor chair.


Other Good Resources:


HIGH

Offered in a rainbow of colors (35 shades to be exact), this armchair version is the most customizable if you're working with an existing palette. The gentle slope of the arms and streamlined spindles make this seat the perfect scale for any space.


This Tom Dixon pick exudes modernity with its inky hue and modern design. A black leather seat offers additional comfort without sacrificing style.
