Really Comfy chairs for around my farmtable?

I'm not a fan of rush seats or ladderback and want something ultra comfy for lingering over those late night cheese courses. I was thinking upholstered wing chairs at the ends and some sort of rustic side chair design for the other 4 chairs. Most wing chairs are too huge, though. I need something on a smaller scale so as not to overwhelm the room.

The table is 7 feet by 3 feet.

many thanks,

  1. Most quality reproduction Windsors are very comfortable. If you get quality repros the seat depth and width is perfect and if you need a cushion or two, that's easily added.

    Most come stained in a cherry or maple, but you can get painted. I have them and they're simple and elegant.

        Thanks so much :) For some reason the designer who is helping me to work on the project is not a fan of the Windsors for the Old World farmhouse "look" that we are trying to achieve. They are very pretty though. I am looking more for upholstered. Tricky with the sizes...
