Six Popular Types of Calgary Dining Room Chairs to Consider

Find the perfect dining room chairs, and you’ll want to throw a dinner party to celebrate. But, you need to shop for the chairs first.

Bondars has many different types of Calgary dining room chairs available at our showroom, and here are six popular design options to consider.

Arm Chairs

Let’s start with arm chairs. These dining room chairs are typically found at the head or foot of the table. They often have a formal feel and can differ from the other dining chairs to create a statement. But, if you’re looking for a matching set, there are arm chairs that have matching side chairs too. But, more on those later.

The beautiful Bolero Arm Chair is available at Bondars in Calgary. This chair is shown with a silver nailhead frame trim and showcases a Bombay finish. Having this chair at any head or foot of a table will create a focal point.

If you’re looking for even more of a statement, the Clarendon Host Arm Chair is a great option.

It features ash solids, an upholstered seat and an arm and back nailhead trim. It’s also available in a variety of fabrics other than the neutral shown in the picture, if you’re looking to add a splash of colour.

Side Chairs

Armless chairs generally sit along the side of a dining room table and are often called side chairs. Side chairs come in various styles and can be upholstered or not fully upholstered. At Bondars, we carry matching side and armchairs if you’re looking to create a matching set around the table.

The Bellany Upholstered Side Chair is a beautiful example of a side chair.

The gentle curve and angle of the chair back provides exceptional seating comfort while looking modern and timeless.

If you’re looking for a dining room chair that is made in Canada, why not consider the Bermex Side Chair.

This chair features solid North American Birch and is available with a variety of different leg styles and leather options.


If your Calgary home is more contemporary, bring that theme into your dining area with modern dining room chairs.

Modern dining room furniture is often made out of bent wood or moulded plastic and metal, and tends to have a streamlined look.

One of our favourites when it comes to modern Calgary dining chairs is the Phase Arm Chair because of its’ natural sophistication.

The neutral colour works with any dining room style and the eye is drawn to the unique build of this dining room chair. The chair is available in a variety of fabrics and leathers. Come into Bondars for more information.


A traditional type of dining room chair is the Mission/Shaker chair. These dining chairs generally have simple, straight vertical or horizontal lines and are made out of wood.

For this style, consider the Charm Side Chair which is indeed very charming.

The shaker style comes across on the back of the chair but remains contemporary and modern with the style and seat cushion. This chair is available in a number of different fabrics, leathers and finishes.

Bar Stools

Bar stools have become increasingly popular and are the perfect choice for unconventional dining spaces or for people who are interested in bringing a bit of character to the room.

There are many different options for Calgary bar stools, including the modern and contemporary Flaminio Bar Stools.

While this is not a traditional dining room chair, this look is growing in popularity.

There are many benefits to incorporating a bench at your dining room table. First and foremost, adding a bench to one side of the table can create a seamless look.

Benches also allow for more people to be around the table creating an inviting feeling by bringing everyone closer.

The Dinec Bench 3040 is made in Canada and has solid North American Birch.

If you’re not ready to go backless, you could try out a Settee instead of dining room chairs or benches. The McCreary Settee is available at Bondars in Calgary. It comes in a variety of different fabrics and finishes.
