A lot of people love the look of stark, modern chairs, but let’s face it– no one wants to spend a whole dinner party sitting on a chair that’s not tush-friendly. So I’ve put together a list of my favorite modern, upholstered, budget-friendly dining chairs, from as little as $90.
Gus Modern has an upholstered version of the classic Eames chair in two contrasting colors. Considering the wide appeal of this shape and the wallet-friendly price ($500 for the pair), these are an instant Roomology favorite.
I like the combination of colors and materials on the Sean Dix Slingshot chair, $329 from inmod.
The simplicity of the blu dot Knicker chair is belied by cheeky bit of fabric running down its back legs. $279 from AllModern.
I can personally vouch for the comfort of the Zuo Modern Trafico Dining Chair, only $102 at Matthew Izzo.
The IKEA Nils chair has budget-friendly modern style AND arms for only $90.
I like the criss-cross oak frame of the Savile Chair, $385 from DWR.
The Patara chair from Soho Concept comes in fun, bright colors and is made of organic wool. $343 from AllModern.
Love the cantilevered frame and comfy-looking upholstery of the alta chair, $199 from cb2.
