FAQ: Cane Dining Chairs

Choosing dining chairs can be overwhelming. I get it; you want to nail that home aesthetic while not wasting your money on something you may regret. I find gathering information, reading reviews, and asking questions is the best way to feel confident in my purchases. Here are a few questions you may consider before pulling the trigger on your cane dining chairs!

Are cane back chairs out of style?

Cane material is timeless (it’s been around for hundreds of years!), and although it goes in and out of vogue, it never goes out of style. So if it seems too trendy, don’t worry; cane dining chairs are here to stay! 

Does cane furniture break easily? 

Cane is remarkably sturdy, but because it is made of plant fibers, it is also prone to dry out and break with use. So, whether you buy a new or vintage cane dining chair, be prepared to give it a little extra TLC. Another thing to keep in mind is that a chair with a cane seat will be more prone to breakage as it bears weight daily. So if you’re worried, go for a cane back chair instead!

Are cane dining chairs comfortable?

Cane has a comfort profile similar to a wooden chair. Comfort also depends on the chair’s dimensions and style, not just the cane material. At some point, any chair can become uncomfortable, so consider how much time and what activities you like to do around the dining table to make your decision.


I always like to include a section on affordable options because let’s be honest, most of us can’t drop $1000+ on dining chairs! The chairs in this post range from $200-$1,000+ (many come in sets of 2-4). For convenience, I linked all the dining chairs under $300 below!


Anthropologie never disappoints in offering unique, high-quality furniture pieces. This simple yet elegant dining chair could double as an accent chair


Pottery Barn never fails to offer beautiful, classic-styled furniture. I used to think Pottery Barn was a little too mature style-wise for me, but I’m on board now! They have a beautiful cane furniture collection that fits any home style. Check out a few of my favorites below.


Wayfair is one of the most well-known online retailers for furniture and home accents. I’ve purchased a few furniture pieces from Wayfair, and I have not been disappointed. They have a good company reputation and boast tons of honest customer reviews with original photos so you feel confident in your purchase. In addition, Wayfair usually includes free shipping. One thing to keep in mind is the majority of their furniture products have a no-return policy unless defective. 


If weeding through hundreds of listings on Wayfair doesn’t sound appealing, did you know Wayfair created curated sites for their products focused on specific home styles? One of these sites, Birch Lane, focuses on traditional, french-country style pieces. Shipping is free over $35, and they have room-of-choice white-glove delivery on select large items! If it’s French-country charm you’re after I would choose the Pelaez Bettencourt Linen Cane Back Side Chair in Beige (Set of 2) $452.


Joss and Main, another Wayfair company, sells timeless, transitional pieces (think McGee & Co. or Serene & Lilly). If you want a more luxurious and elevated look for your home, Joss & Main will inspire and help you achieve it without blowing your budget!


Most of the cane dining chairs I’ve shared up until now are classic styles. All Modern on the other hand boasts a beautiful collection of mid-century-modern furniture and accents. From Velvet seats with cane backs to boho-inspired cane armchairs, you are sure to find the perfect dining chair with a modern twist.


Since McGee & Co.’s line came to Target the designer dupes have been nonstop, which makes it possible to effortlessly achieve that high-end look for less! The Designer, Shae’s, transitional style creates the perfect balance between classic and modern. 


So, if your budget is a bit more high-end than Target dupes, check out Shea’s own website, McGee & Co. for some high-end cane dining chairs. My favorites are the Elowyn Outdoor Dining Chair, which could be an indoor chair, and the Hadden Chair in black.


Something I discovered recently is that Walmart offers online-only furniture pieces. There are so many good-quality, trendy pieces available. Also, Walmart offers free shipping with larger orders and usually has better pricing than other online retailers. My favorite Walmart finds are the Baxton Mid-Century Modern (Set of 2) and the GDF Studio Fench Country (Set of 4), which I want to emphasize is under $500 for a set of four chairs!


My favorite thing about buying on Amazon is how insanely honest the reviews are! People are brutal about their opinions on quality and comfort. It can be scary buying online, so reading honest reviews can help decision-making. Not to mention Amazon’s great pricing, Prime shipping, return policies, and overall trusted company experience. For a modern look, I love the Homy Grigio Brown Mid Century Faux Leather (Set of 4), and for transitional style, the Hattie Natural French Cane Living Room Dining Arm Chair (Set of 2)
