Classic Seagrass Chairs

Classic Seagrass Chairs

This set includes two chairs with solid wood mahogany frames. They measure just over 37 inches tall and approx. 19 inches wide. Upholstered in water hyacinth seagrass, each chair has a subtly curved seat, a tall back, and an overall traditional look. 

Designer Advice:

We recommend these chairs for a traditional décor scheme due to their simple look. The dark brown tones would look stunning and make a grand statement paired with a large mahogany dining table in an oval shape. A burgundy table runner will complete the look and add a small amount of color to an otherwise monochrome room.

The tie-back cushions included with these chairs are perfect for cottage and country styles.

Dark Seagrass Chairs

Dark Seagrass Chairs

These chairs are clean-lined and contemporary, featuring a deep brown finish that has been glazed and wire brushed. The silhouette of each chair is Parsons-inspired, with tapered solid wood legs in a lighter hue. The seats are filled with foam for extra cushioning.

$183 $899

Designer Advice:

The chocolate brown hue of these chairs would be a great fit for a warm neutral dining room. Bring back décor styles of the 2000s by opting for lighter shades of brown around the room. Brown is one of the few colors that match well with their lighter and darker variants, so take advantage of this.

Traditional Sea Grass Chairs

Traditional Sea Grass Chairs

These two chairs are upholstered in a blend of wicker and seagrass with a mahogany finish for a beachy look. Each chair has a full solid back, a wide square seat, and short curved legs in a black finish.

Designer Advice:

Embrace boho chic with these chairs. We recommend pairing them with a dining table or kitchen island in chestnut brown to bring out the richness of the mahogany finish. Alternatively, you could also match them with black due to the legs. Either way, a shaggy rug underneath will always create a boho vibe. Accessorize with plants dotted around the room.

Armchair Style Seagrass Chairs

Armchair Style Seagrass Chairs

This set comes with four chairs. Each chair is made from solid hardwood, woven seagrass, and rattan, with ridged detail on the leg and arm posts. The frame is unfinished, so you can stain or upholster it as you wish.

Designer Advice:

The armchair style of these chairs would work well in a more casual dining setting. Their design is perfect for cottage-style homes, especially if paired with mismatched furniture for a cozy vibe. Treat them with a protective oil if you don’t plan to paint or lacquer; otherwise, they will become damaged much faster.

Buying Guide

For a long time, seagrass was considered nothing more than a fast growing weed that posed a hindrance to marine vessels and had taken over vast stretches of waterways. That’s until designers realized the application of these hard, shiny and smooth reeds in making furniture.

Today, seagrass furniture is an exotic addition to any home or commercial setup. The durability of the reed, the hay-like smell of the dried grass and the multitude of finishes that it is available in, make it a fantastic material for manufacturing chairs in particular.

However, seagrass chairs may not be suited for certain settings. Also, there are a bunch of factors that one needs to be aware of before buying these types of furniture. Here’s a brief guide.

Seagrass is a plant that grows in shallow waters near coastlands. When it dries after being woven, it attains a brown, hard finish that is very similar in appearance to synthetic rattan, which can be made of Polyethylene or Polypropylene.

Some manufacturers, use the term Seagrass to describe just about any type of wicker furniture. Natural seagrass will have a mild hay-like odor even when it is dried and sealed with lacquer. Also, the grass reeds will have slight color variations.

Rattan, on the other hand, can be made to resemble seagrass but will be perfectly finished without any variation in color or texture.

Natural seagrass tends to fade when exposed directly to sunlight. Also, even the slightest exposure to moisture can cause rot to set in. Hence, these are best suited for indoor use or in a covered patio. If you are looking for a chair for outdoor use, go for synthetic rattan instead.

Seagrass furniture can either be hand woven or machine woven. In fact, hand weaving seagrass and cane happens to be one of the biggest industries for skilled artisans in countries like Vietnam, Brazil, and parts of Africa.

Handwoven furniture has its own unique traits and is crafted with astute attention to detail. If you buy a set of four chairs, for example, none of them will be similar. There will always be minute imperfections which make them unique.

Mass produced seagrass chairs, on the other hand, might look more polished, but they lack the authenticity and flair of their handmade counterparts.

When it comes to seagrass chairs, the base frame material is as important as the quality of the grass and the weave.

  • Most manufacturers use solid wood for the frames.
  • Chairs imported from Asian countries typically have rubber wood frames
  • Locally made chairs can be made of oak, maple, cedar, cherry or pine.
  • MDF is rarely used due to the lack of stability and durability. But some cheaper varieties might be made of it. If unsure, speak to the manufacturer.
  • Metal frames match their wooden counterparts when it comes to stability. And they are cost effective too.

From side chairs, often sold in pairs to chaise lounges, dining chairs, barstools, armchairs, ottomans, sofas and recliners, you can find seagrass chairs for any place and purpose.

For regular cleaning of seagrass furniture, wipe it with a soft, dry cloth, in a way that doesn't force dust under the weave. To remove accumulated dirt, use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment.
