When comparing these chairs to competitors please turn the chair over and look at the supports. You will notice many competitors use a metal support under the seat.

Guide to French Provincial Cross Back Dining Chairs

Not only do French Cross back dining chairs complete the look of your dining room, but they also play an essential role in your home’s decor. However, their functionality is critical to your family’s comfort.
Dining Chairs that are lovely and desirable. The ideal dining chair invites you to gather around the table with friends and family to create special memories.

What are Cross Back Chairs?

Dining chairs are essential in your home’s decor, and not just because they complete the look of your dining room. However, their functionality is critical to your family’s comfort.
Cross back dining chairs are known for their sturdy construction and distressed accents, which complement rustic farmhouse decor beautifully. They have an x-back, curved legs, and a woven rattan seat for a natural look. The chair provides additional cushioning and a nice contrast to the wood.

History of Cross Back Chairs

Cross-back chairs were popular in French bistros in the early twentieth century. In terms of lower supports are similar to bentwood chairs, but instead of rounded arcs, they have flattened strips of wood that cross in the back.
The way cross back chairs were originally made is such a unique feature. The wooden parts were made by heating beechwood slats to 212°F, pressing them into curved cast-iron moulds, and drying them for 20 hours at around 158°F.

What Makes a Comfortable Dining Chair Versatile for Your Style?

The versatility of these elegant dining chairs is one of my favourite features. Even though they are frequently seen with modern farmhouse accents, they look great in almost any home decor style! They’re equally at ease with a farmhouse trestle table as they are with French country or coastal decor.
Nothing is worse than a sore back from sitting in an uncomfortable chair, no matter how nice a dining set looks or how well it matches your decor. How aggravating would it be to spend hundreds of dollars on a lovely dining set only to discover that your family and guests despise it?

Delightful, Desirable Dining Chairs.

The ideal dining chair invites you to gather around the table with friends and family to create your own special memories. Formal dining chairs are appropriate for formal dining rooms, while more relaxed looks are appropriate for more relaxed tables and kitchens. That is where our French Cross back chairs suit best for your dining area.

Things that every home in the French provincial style should have

This is how to master one of the most timeless interior design styles.
What is the French provincial style, and how can it be used in a modern home? Local wood furniture makers in the South of France began to imitate the ornate furniture produced in Paris in the 17th and 18th centuries, essentially creating their own pared-back “French-country” pieces out of more affordable materials. Soldiers returning home from World War I were inspired by the appearance of country homes they had seen in the South of France.

  • Rustic wood

This dining area exudes both sophistication and simplicity. The rustic wooden dining table and padded chairs exude simplicity, while the timber flooring and refined colour palette exude sophistication.

  • Natural warm tones

Drawing inspiration from nature when choosing a colour palette for this style is necessary. Colors used in a French country interior include whites, neutrals, greys, creams, blushes, and light blues.

  • Parquetry

In a French provincial style home, parquetry is a must-have feature. The herringbone pattern is the most common way to lay parquetry. Melissa Penfold’s home’s interior designer has a more elaborate French oak flooring pattern.

  • Statement kitchen island

A central island, usually in the same colour or finish as the rest of the cabinetry, will serve as the heart of the home in a French-inspired kitchen. Take inspiration from this lovely island bench with its classic panelling and marble top.

Are X-Back Chairs Comfortable?

Cross back chairs are not only comfortable but are also ergonomic, which is ironic because they don’t appear to be nearly as comfortable as they are. As someone who suffers from lower back pain, the lumbar support provided by the wooden pieces that form the curved x surprised me. Cross back chairs were frequently mentioned as good desks or dining chairs for those with back problems when looking for the best dining room chair for lower back pain. Most cross-back chairs do not have fully upholstered seats, but padding beneath the rattan makes them more comfortable than a standard wooden dining chair. If you require additional support, dining cushions, which are easier to clean than upholstered dining chairs, can be added.

Cross Back Dining Chair, Arms or No Arms?
