Can the Country French Style Bring a Soothing Elegance to your Home?

The Country French Style is defined by its distinct elegance and sophistication. Antiques, florals, rustic details, and gilded elements give rooms the elegant yet cozy look of Country French style.

With rustic country detailing, smooth, distinct curves, and generally yellow, blue, and off-white color tones, the Country French Style attains a humble sophistication that no other style quite achieves.

At DutchCrafters we carry one of the finest online collections of Country French Dining Room Chairs and Tables. Typically designed as either ladder-back style or with vertical slats, our Country French dining room chairs offer warmth and character to any home. Just imagine enjoying them with a good cheese and a glass of Burgundy - you can almost hear the cow bells

Our French Country dining room chairs are intended to complement our French Country dining tables. If you're looking for a Shabby Chic or a Provencal feel, we have plenty of options to choose from.

All of our French Country dining chairs are available in multiple solid woods options, including oak, cherry and maple. Choose from a wide variety of stain or paint options as well. Consider a two-tone or a light distressing to bring out the character of these wonderful chairs.

Made by the Amish, these French Country style chairs are built here in America. They are built for style, comfort and beauty. Because they are handcrafted in solid wood, each chair is sturdy and durable - made to last many decades of use.

On the Right we have a beautiful handcrafted Windsor Captains Chair. This Elegant Windsor is fit for a king!

Notice the curves in the seat. The seat itself is the most essential part of the Windsor Chair, as the seat provides the stability for both the upper and lower portions of the chair. Each seat blank is carefully chosen by an Amish craftsman, and the utmost care is given to shaping the seat, both to achieve the desired look and the perfect feel.

Like the rocker above, this Captain Windsor is an antique reproduction of heirloom quality and carries a lifetime warranty.

WINDSOR FUN FACT: Legend has it that King George III discovered the Windsor chair in a cottage while fox hunting. Pleased with the chair, he had a number crafted to be placed in the Windsor Castle, thus bringing about its name.
