Solid Oak Dining Sets - Our 2023 Favorites

This American-grown, responsibly harvested wood has an excellent record of longevity. What's more, oak is highly versatile, accommodating both traditional and contemporary dining room sets.

 

There’s a lot to love about oak—it’s warm, rich with character, and unyielding to the regular bumps and scrapes that come with a dining family. What’s more, it accommodates a full range of stain options, allowing it to fit within almost any decor and color scheme. Despite oak’s many strengths, both red and white species can be more affordable than some other hardwood options. 

For these reasons, oak is a natural choice for your new dining furniture set. Keep in mind, almost all Countryside Amish Furniture can be ordered in multiple wood species, enabling you to choose which best fits your home. However, we compiled examples of our favorite dining room sets displayed in oak to show the beauty and versatility this North American hardwood can deliver.

Let’s start off our list of oak dining room sets with this eight-piece collection. The star is the trestle table enhanced with decorative ends, all while staying true to the simplicity of Arts and Crafts woodworking. Alternatively, you can choose coordinating leg tables either with or without butterfly leaves.

Accompanying your choice of table are four different seating options: a bench, dining chairs, and two styles of bar-height seats. Yet this oak dining set is far from finished, as these various options all match with a fetching sideboard with modifiable shelves, pull-out serving trays, and full extension drawers. 

We chose to spotlight the Harding Craftsman Style Dining Set because the pieces model how a natural, traditional stain can bring out oak’s handsome grain and inviting hues. Such a stain puts the quality of the wood and its craftsmanship front and center.

Key Features

  • Solid hardwood construction
  • Mortise and tenon joinery
  • Reinforced attachments
  • Levelers in table legs
  • Full extension drawers
  • Dovetailed drawers

Key Features

  • Solid hardwood construction

The Bexley Dining Set leans much more into the industrial theme than the previous dining set, thanks to the planked top table’s cast iron base, complete with the words Made in USA proudly displayed. However, it’s no less elegant, thanks to the detail-oriented shaping of the metal and lustrous gleam of the wood. 

Buy this table in one of four sizes ranging from 42” x 66” to 48” x 72”. Plus, the collection invites you to consider five different chair options that exhibit either Shaker-inspired aesthetics or modern-leaning full upholstery.
