It is no secret that I have an obsession with French style accent chairs. The term for the style of chair that I love is a “Bergere chair.” Essentially, a Bergere chair is an upholstered French armchair, designed for lounging in comfort. It features a larger, wider seat than most armchairs and they often come with matching footrests. They are, in my opinion, very beautiful chairs and they are also incredibly comfortable.
The two Bergere chairs I own have both been thrift store or Craigslist finds. They were in good shape and just needed new upholstery, which I did myself (you can read more about that here). I adore my chairs because I was able to make them exactly what I wanted them to be. But upholstery is hard work and not for everyone! Sometimes it’s nice to just buy a beautiful, brand new chair and have it delivered to you, amiright?
So for those of you who love the French country or farmhouse look but really have no interest in trying to reupholster a thrifted chair, this post it for you! There are many styles of beautiful, comfortable chairs that fit nicely with a French country or farmhouse style. Here are 10 of my favorite French country style chairs that are actually really affordable, each coming in at under $300!

Not a shabby collection of affordable chairs! Honestly, if I had come across any one of these beautiful chairs before buying my own Bergere chairs, I may not have gone to the trouble of reupholstering two thrifted chairs!
These 10 beauties would look gorgeous not only in your living room, but I think they’re perfect for that one empty corner of your bedroom where you’ve been dying to add a reading nook. Or if you have a large dining room or formal sitting room that needs just one more seating area, these chairs would be perfect!
