The Ultimate Parsons Chairs Guide 2017: Skirted, Leather, Upholstered (20+ Items)

Parsons Chair designTo my family and me, the dining room represents the hub of the house. It’s  where we as a family come together. We eat, talk about our day and just enjoy each other’s company. It makes choosing the best set of Parsons Chairs all the more important.

Not only will these chairs be used by you and your family members, whenever you have guests over they will as well. These pieces of furniture need to be sturdy, comfortable to sit in, build to last and fit the style of your room or house. Parsons dining chairs are items that most people are willing to invest in since they will be used for many years. Usually, you don’t go and change dining room furniture every few months.

However, some of you might disagree and say that you just want affordable items in your dining room now so that you can at least sit at the dining room table. Maybe you want to invest in better quality furniture later on. That’s okay. There’s nothing wrong with that. Whatever your reason for looking for dining room furniture I’ll have you covered in this guide. I want to make this the last, best and ultimate guide about Parsons Chairs you can find online.

I’ve created a special section where I educate you on this particular type of dining room furniture. Feel free to skip this, that’s why it’s at the end of the page. Find out what is a Parsons chair, get tips for choosing a chair to fit your room and learn about the different types available.

Skirted Parsons Chairs

Coaster Home Furnishings Traditional Design Beige

Coaster Home Furnishings brings you this classically styled beige skirted Parsons chair that comes in sets of 2. It’s a very sophisticated piece that would look great at a solid wooden table as shown in the image.

As with most skirted designs, the legs hidden behind the fabric. It also features a high back providing additional back support and comfort. The material is neatly attached to the seat frame with a nail head decorate on the furniture’s back.

The neutral color helps to easily match it with many different styles of dining room setups. If beige isn’t your cup of tea, you can see it in a dark red-brown floral pattern cover here. Keep in mind that the beige and red unit both have different specifications.

Specifications: 24.5 x 20.5 x 41.5 inch

 

Sloane Whitney Sardis Multi Color Item

Sloane Whitney offers a broad range of skirted dining room furniture designs in many different colors. What’s great is the fact that this chair is made by hand proudly in the US. Since it’s made by hand, it means you don’t have to assemble or pay extra money for it to be assembled.

It’s a simple design using one tone color fabric containing a firmly padded high back. It also comes with a lifetime warranty which is an added benefit none the less. Be sure to check which parts of the item is under that guarantee.

This piece of furniture is sturdy since it’s built to withstand a weight limit of 325 lbs. It’s an elegant piece that can be utilized for many rooms in your house. The fact that it comes in so many colors makes a very easy for you to match it with your home interior. I don’t  do this often, but I think it helps you in getting a mental picture, so I’ve added additional images of other available colors below.

These include red, light blue, cream, purple, orange, green, gray, dark blue, tan and teal which are all available on the same product page I’m linking to below. As far as I can tell these skirted Parsons Chairs do not come in sets of two, but in single units.

Specifications: 26 x 20 x 40 inch

 

 

Jofran Furnishings Beige

Although there is not much separating the Jofran skirted seat from Sloane Whitney’s mentioned above, I added it to the list since it comes in sets of 2.

It conforms to a traditional style of fabric covered Parsons furniture items with a high back. The chair’s frame is made from reclaimed pine wood.

According to the seller, Jofran, it gives a trendy shabby-chick look that is very popular in the furniture market at the moment.

Specifications: 21 x 29 x 40 inch

 

Leather Parsons Chairs

Roundhill Urban Style Furniture

Roundhill’s Urban leather furniture seems to be a big hit on Amazon. Well, at least looking at some reviews. The chair is created with what Roundhill calls black “leatherette.” It seems like some PU leather-based material.

Even though it is not genuine leather, it makes for a modern and refined design. Having this covering on your furniture also makes it easy to clean stains and dirt. The frame of the product is made from solid wood.

This item also comes in a range of 5 additional colors like the brown, white, red and a unique light blue as well as lime green. Having these seats in a bright color would make a bold statement in any room. They come standard in a set of 2 products per order.

Specifications: 21 x 16.5 x 35.5 inch

 

King’s Brand Set Espresso Finish

These Leather Parsons Chairs from Kings Brand offer a slightly different look than an average dining room seat. It’s got a curved form going into the back leg of the product.

There are no patterns on the chair which provide a sleek modern look. The type of upholstery used is called faux-leather, and the legs are covered in an Espresso stain. It’s a style that is kept standard with the black and brown version as well.

Available in sets of two per order it also requires assembly as many other items in this category.

Specifications: 43.7 x 18.9 x 15 inch

 

Simpli Home Deluxe Tufted Cosmopolitan Set

This set of 2 furniture piece is what Simpli Home calls dramatic and luxurious black. The leather upholstery design type used is called “tufted.” You’ll see many more of these tufted chairs in the section below as well.

Although this chair is available in brown and cream, you’ll also see the fabric versions if you scroll down to the tufted section.

I’m a fan of dark furniture products. To me, they look especially good when placed in contrast with a room painted in light colors as shown in the display image. The tufted upholstery also further reinforces the modern contemporary design.

As before this piece is also covered in faux leather.

Specifications: 43.7 x 18.9 x 15 inch

 

XtremepowerUS Brown Wood Leatherette

Why would I add another set of chairs that look so similar to those I’ve previously posted? The answer is straightforward. Even though similarities can be found you’ll notice that each product has their little set of design elements.

This Parsons leather furniture design is no different. It’s a somewhat square shaped contemporary modern object. A very simple looking, but yet stylish seat. Some would say it’s urban furniture at it’s best.

Take a look at the black variant if brown’s not your preference. Besides using it for a dining room table, some even utilizes it in their office.

Specifications: 35.8 x 16.7 x 11 inch

 

Roundhill Furniture Blended Black

This black leather dining room chair from Roundhill is made from “blended leather.” If that means that it’s a combination of genuine and lower quality leather materials I’m not sure. However, I did appreciate the old and worn out look this item produces.

Another thing to take note of is the tufted design which you should know by now is a favorite of mine. The wooden legs are covered in a cherry wood finish.

Roundhill does warn that product that you receive may turn out somewhat different than the product in the image. It makes sense since this type of material seems to reflect a lot of light, something to keep in mind.

Specifications: 19 x 16 x 38.5 inch

 

Monsoon Pacific Milan Faux

Here’s a set of Parsons chairs I was attracted to not because of particular design or shape, but simply for its unique range of leather coloring. I can almost guarantee you won’t see many of these blue furniture pieces.

These sets of 2 faux leather chairs all contain a sleek look with black wooden legs in a pine frame. I keep wanting to say that this demonstrates an art deco or even retro design style, but I don’t want to step on any interior designer toes. Either way, it looks very stylish.

If you’re looking for really unique colors, you can try this range from Monsoon Pacific which also comes in light lime green, baby blue, orange, a dark purple, maroon red and more. These items will be ideal for adding a dash of color to a bland and boring room.

Specifications: 19 x 16 x 38.5 inch

 

Merax Urban Style White

Here’s an upholstered leather dining room chair with a lot of extra detail. It has a diamond shape tufted design on the back and the both sides are stitched with bronze nail heads.

The product itself has a very detailed product page on Amazon. It gives a lot of additional information that many other sellers don’t provide. You get to see many close-up images of specific areas of the seat.

The frame is created out of hard wood, and it can take a weight of 250 lbs. It’s also available in a dark brown leatherette. However, this particular version (dark brown) consists of an eye-catching tufted upholstery and does not have nail heads on the sides.

Specifications: 18.1 x 24 x 40.9 inch

 

Target Marketing Systems Set of 2 Bettega Furniture

The reason I added this Parsons chair from Target Marketing is that it has a unique stitching on the seat and back on of the item. It’s simply to offer additional variety to those that like pieces with not too much detail, but at least something differentiating them from plain leather items.

The chair is made from rubber wood, and PU leather is used in the upholstery. This brown version is my favorite, but it’s also possible to get these chairs in a matte black type of leatherette fabric.

Specifications: 21.2 x 17 x 37 inch

 

Kings Brand 4 Set

I’ll have to be completely honest and say that there isn’t much to say about this set from King’s Brand. However, it’s one of the only few items one the list that comes in a set of 4 units per order.

If you want to simplify life, then this offer is for you. These faux leather chairs come in a black and white. I might recommend this to people that are on a budget. These four items cost almost as much as some 2 set items do.

Now keep at mind prices on Amazon are always changing. However, it’s worth checking out if you are budget conscious.

*Update* It looks like this product is currently only available in white. I will update this as soon as I see any further change.

Specifications: 21 x 17 x 38 inch

 

Kings Brand Nail Head Trim

I’m still deciding if I like this design or not, but you have to admit it’s unique. I know I use this word a lot, but not many Parsons chairs have holes cut out on their backs with nail head trimmings around it.

Truth be told I own a few green vintage furniture pieces myself, but they don’t look nearly as great as these. The hole in the back also makes it easy to slide and pull the seat in and out of the dining room table.

You can find it in white and black. The black looks especially stylish with the bronze colored nail heads. As shown in the image, these items come in pairs of two per order.

Specifications: 18.5 x 24 x 40 inch

 

Modway Silhouette Modern White

The last leather Parsons item on the list might be a little odd to some. It’s got a curvaceous design where the back of the chair is not rectangular but has curves cut out of it on both sides.

The back is also made up of tufted upholstery with buttons placed in a diamond-shaped form. It contains a lot of thick foam padding on the seat and back for great comfort. To me, it screams modern design, especially this white piece.

You can get it in black and white in sets of 2 or even single units.

Specifications: 18.5 x 24 x 40 inch

 

Fabric Upholstered Parsons Chairs

Coaster Home Furnishings Cappuccino Set

Coaster Home brings you this elegant cappuccino colored chair that fits well with traditionally styled or wooden dining room tables. The item is made from a combination of tropical wood and is upholstered with a microfiber material.

The legs are dark brown which fits almost perfectly with the tan colored fabric. Unfortunately, this product is only available in light brown. However, that has not stopped it from gathering a bunch of reviews on Amazon.

As an added benefit, you get a one-year limited warranty. The product comes in pairs of two units.

Specifications: 20.5 x 17 x 36.8 inch

 

Dorel Living Linen Set

I like this light taupe/gray Parsons chair design since light colored furniture items have always been my favorite. I love the idea of a minimalist design house.

This set of 2 piece items are from Dorel Living and comes standard with dark pine wood legs. Taupe colored linen is used in the upholstery.

As you can see in the image, it’s easy to match these pieces to almost any room, but it looks especially good in a room that has a lot of white or neutral colors in it.

Specifications: 25 x 19.5 x 37.8 inch

 

Merax Classic Fabric

The type of fabric used in this piece from Merax looks very similar to the previous chair from Dorel Living. However, it got added to the list since it comes in additional colors such as the green to your right, beige and gray.

As usual, you can get these in pairs of two per order. The type of wood used for the frame and legs are not specifically mentioned. However, the dark color scheme of the legs offers a nice contrast with the light green fabric of the seat.

Specifications: 35 x 17 x 20 inch

 

Roundhill Furniture Nailhead Fabric Design

This pair of upholstered Parsons dining room chairs from Roundhill Furniture is glamorous and design rich. The blue fabric is outlined with brass-colored nail heads all around the item.

Natural stained linen materials are used for the upholstering while the legs provide a driftwood glaze. You can also get the same design in a gray as well as tan or beige version.

On a different listing, you can find the same furniture piece with a light blue upholstered fabric here.

Roundhill Furniture Mod Urban Style Solid Wood  Padded Parson Chair (Set of 2), Blue

Specifications: 25 x 20 x 41 inch

 

ModHaus Modern Red Microfiber

If you’ve read any of my other articles on Expo Dac, you might have seen my restoration project where I used red suede fabric for the seat of the item, similar to this chair from ModHaus.

This particular item comes with red upholstered fabric matched with brown colored tapered legs. The richness of this furniture piece’s color is amazing and makes a big statement in any room.

If you have a boring and bland room, a pair of these items might be just what you need to shed some light. As you can see from the image, the dark red also matches great with other dark colors such as gray, black and brown.

Specifications: 25 x 20 x 41 inch

 

Tufted Parsons Chairs (Not leather, but with fabric)

Signature Design by Ashley Tripton

Tufted Parsons Chairs, whether made from leather or any other type of material, always feel very luxurious and stylish to me. I guess it’s the fact that the added detail in the design makes it different and unique.

This design from Ashley Furniture is no different. Although only available in the light brown or beige it demonstrates a classic tufted upholstery technique with a back that is curved and bundled headrest on the top.

The upholstery is laid out in a type of diamond shaped design with a high back.

Specifications: 27 x 20 x 43.2 inch

 

Simpli Home Cosmo Fabric

If you scroll back up, you should see similar chairs from Simpli Home in covered with a leather-based material. This design is almost the same. The only difference is that it’s covered with a linen based fabric tufted upholstery.

As with the leather option, each product comes in units of two per order. Different colors that you can get this product in include the light brown mocha to your right, a “dove” gray and “natural” color which is a combination of cream and white.

Specifications: 19.3 x 18.9 x 42.1 inch

 

Merax Lux Tufted Fabric Set

Besides this being a beautiful tufted Parsons chair, this piece of furniture from Merax is very sturdy. I say that is since it can hold a whopping weight of 300 lbs.

The fabric design is very soft and neutral, especially the beige piece to your right. What makes this product unique is the nail head trimming it has on the back. This adds a bit of extra detail to this soft-designed piece.

The chair comes in sets of 2 and also in a gray (my favorite) and green.

Specifications: 39 x 18.5 x 20 inch

 

Roundhill Furniture Habit Design

This fabric and design represent elegance! This tufted range from Roundhill comes with beautiful fabric, clean lines and a lot of detail.

The buttons on the back are the same color as the rest of the chair fabric making it a subtle, but elegant addition. The wooden legs are covered in a light brown finish.

The piece also contains a very comfortable looking high back and large padded cushion. Other favorite colors consist of gray and tan/white.

Specifications: 26 x 18 x 39.2 inch

 

Natural Tall Dining Piece

If you believe that more is better, then chances are that you won’t find a furniture piece on this list or maybe anywhere else with more tufted buttons than this one.

The Parsons Chairs manufacturer of this item went all out and covered the whole back in upholstered buttons. This two-set high back chair is actually stylish, but unfortunately only comes in white or a “natural” color as they advertise it.

Specifications: 21.9 x 28.4 x 49.2 inch

 

HomePop Modern 4-button Tufted Aqua

The last tufted fabric upholstered chair on the list is this one from HomePop. It’s a modern sophisticated and minimalist design. For me it’s has a minimalist feel to it since it only has four tufted buttons on the back.

Compared to the previous product I think you will agree with me. As with most on this list, it comes as a pair of two and only in teal or aqua.

The wooden legs with a dark colored finish fit the teal fabric design and look amazing in the white-themed room as shown in the image.

Specifications: 39 x 19.75 x 26.5 inch

 

Printed Parsons Chairs

Merax French Design Print

This list won’t be complete without a few printed design furniture items. This one from Merax is a type of French design with words written on the seat and back of the white fabric.

The back has also nail heads attached to the frame. This piece would look awesome in a cafe or restaurant.

It only comes in the beige/white/cream design with black wooden legs. You can a similar item sold by Coresti Home over here.

Specifications: 18.1 x 24 x 40.9 inch

 

AVE SIX Dakota Floral

Ave Six sells these beautiful floral design pieces called “Dakota.” The piece is upholstered with a beige fabric and the wooden legs covered in an Espress
