New chairs for an Industrial Farmhouse Style

I have been really into the Industrial Farmhouse look for awhile. I would describe Industrial Farmhouse as ‘industrial metal warehouse with a touch of NYC loft’ meets ‘rustic wooden barn farmhouse with lots of chicken wire’. It’s such a random pairing, and I absolutely love it. Bring on the ceramic barn animals and chicken wire baskets and pair them with anything from Restoration Hardware. The looks makes me ga-ga.

Last month Dana over at House*Tweaking posted about some amazing Industrial barstools she purchased through Overstock.com.

Aren’t they just fab?

In addition to being totally fab, they are also the exact ‘industrial metal warehouse with a touch of NYC loft’ look that I am totally digging. The stools are a style called Tabouret, and Overstock also carries some chairs that match.

The second I saw the chairs, I knew they were exactly the look I want in my breakfast area. And to seal-uh, the deal-uh for me, in Overstocks photo, they have the chairs paired with a very rustic farmhouse style table. Exact. Look. I. Want. in my home.

I hemmed and hawed for a few days about the chairs, and finally pulled the trigger and ordered two sets (they come in a set of 4). I also went ahead and ordered the matching barstools.

I am seriously so in love with these chairs. They not only look cool, they are surprisingly comfortable. And they were a really great price (only $50 a chair).

Currently I have them paired with our original breakfast table. Eventually Ben and I want to try our hand at building our own Farmhouse style kitchen table. The key word there being “eventually”.

The chairs come in a variety of colors, but I chose the basic metal color to give it the most industrial vibe possible.

If you are thinking about buying a set of these chairs, I will admit that because of the way the arms are, overweight people might not be able to comfortably fit in them. I am about a size 12/14, and if I were much bigger I probably wouldn’t fit comfortably.

One thing I really love is that the chairs stack. You can stack up to 4 chairs together to save space.

Because you have to order in sets of 4, I ended up with 8 chairs even though I only needed 6. I put the extra two chairs upstairs in our game room. The kids use them at their computer desk.

Not only are the chairs pretty easy on the eyes, they are really comfortable. Don’t worry, my boy has since had a haircut. He was looking pretty shaggy, wasn’t he?!

And here are the 24″ counter-height stools I bought. We don’t have a proper bar to sit at, but the kids sit on the side of the island daily anyway.

Here are the links to the chairs and the stools.

I am not affiliated with Overstock in any way, shape, or form. I do not get any kind of compensation from them. I am sharing their link with you because I like the chairs I bought and figured you might like them too.

Have you nailed down your style? It took me a long time to figure out what look I like. What is your favorite decorating style? I love hearing about what other people like.

  1. The stools will come in handy more than you think even if you don’t have a proper bar. Sometimes when I’m making something for dinner that requires a lot of attention or stirring, I love dragging a stool up to the stove and just hanging out.

    • I know, right?! I moved one into my bathroom for my daughter while I do her hair in the morning. They love dragging the stools around the kitchen to cook or climb on the counters. haha I love the stools.

  2. I love your chairs! I have been dreaming of some metal chairs to go with the farmhouse table my husband built…except that I already have perfectly good chairs and the metal one can be kinda pricey. Sometimes being cheap sucks, lol. Yours were a great price though…. hmmm…

    • That’s why I finally just bought them. I’m so cheap, but I had been eying chairs like this for months from other stores. These are by far the cheapest I’ve found.

  3. They are fabulous! I love Overstock, they’ve got great prices. As far as design styles go, I feel like I’m still finding mine but I’m getting there with each new project!

  4. I have been lusting after these chairs for months now. Thanks to your honest review, I know they won’t work for my family as everyone is very tall and some are bigger. I did find some other metal chairs on Overstock though, so now I wait for the “right time” to buy them. Thanks!

  5. I’m in love with this style too! We have a big dining room table with a bench on one side and 4 pretty standard chairs that I’m thinking of painting black. Do you think I could mix in this finish too?

  6. I have never seen this style before, I really like country, but the industrial part is very cute, really I love it.

  7. I absolutely love your new chairs and stools! You are well on your way to recreating your inspiration picture – with your own twist, of course!

  8. Ohhhh, I have seen both the chairs and stools before and considered ordering them! Thanks for showing some real life photos of them, they look awesome! My concern is that the metal will get all scratched/scuffed up from all the pretty rhinestones and rivets my daughters love on their jean pockets! I don’t want to have awesome looking chairs that I’m afraid to use on a daily basis. Maybe you could let us know if that is in issue after you get yours worn in! Thanks!

    • Kim, the chairs are painted the metal color (crazy, I know) so you are right, they might get scuffed and chipped. I’ve had a few small scuffs so far, but they aren’t that noticeable. But if my daughter liked wearing stuff with rhinestones all over it I would probably be nervous too.

  9. Oh, I’m so glad to hear you’re happy with the Overstock chairs. I have a box of them sitting on my back porch–I haven’t even opened them up yet, as they have nowhere to go until DH builds the table for the farmhouse part of my farmhouse industrial kitchen.

  10. I’ve never heard of farmhouse industrial, but it sounds like a fun style. I think I’ve finally narrowed mine down to French country, which is interesting to do in a Craftsman bungalow!

  11. I love this mix, warm wood with industrial is fab indeed! Looks beautiful, and what a deal too

    xoxo, Tanya :)

  12. I love these! Makes me wish I had a bar for those stools! Farmhouse industrial… Love it!

  13. Building a farmhouse table is super easy. We did ours out of some old table legs we bought at a resale shop and wood from an old barn they tore down at my in-laws. Basically it cost us $20 for the legs, and everyone loves it! We used old 2x4s for the frame of it and 1x12s for the top (we used three of them). It was an easy weekend project.

  14. love a mix of industrial and natural elements! these look like a great set!

  15. I love the chairs! Your kids look so cute and comfy in them too. :) Even more, I LOVE the table – can you share where you got it? (Sorry if you’ve already posted on this and I’ve missed it…)
