Metal chairs can add a contemporary touch to your decor, or they can be more rustic. They can work with styles ranging from modern to industrial to French country, depending on the type of metal used, the metal's finish and the design of the chair itself. Metal chairs are also very easy to clean; just wipe them down.

One popular style of metal kitchen chair is a coffee shop or cafe chair with a rounded back. You can find these chairs in beautiful shades of burnished metal or painted in an array of colors, and they are available in table and bar heights. This style can add a contemporary or rustic touch to any kitchen, and you can soften the look with seat cushions that can be changed out on a whim. Even without cushions, the curved design of the seat makes this style of chair a comfortable choice. Another bonus of this type of chair is that some styles are stackable, so you can have extras stored and bring them out when you need extra seating for guests.

If you looking to incorporate a midcentury modern look in your kitchen, metal chairs are a natural choice. Many of these chairs will have a mix of materials, including artificial leather or a smooth vinyl that covers a cushioned seat. For a nice color pop, consider a chair with a mix of unpainted metal and any of an array of colors for the seat cushions. For a more minimalist look, choose a chair that is painted to match the cushion.

For a look that can be both contemporary and timeless, it's difficult to beat a mix of metal and wood for your chairs. You can find a range of styles, from ornate high-backed metal chairs with wooden seats to simple bar stools with metal legs and round seats. A wooden seat and back can add warmth to the look of an elegant contemporary chair that is made of metal.

While an array of metal kitchen chairs can be found online and in stores, for a truly unique look you may want to tap the talents of a skilled metalsmith. Their products will likely cost more than what you'll find in most stores, but you can find one-of-a-kind designs for chairs that will transform your kitchen into a space to remember.
