Hey friends! A while a friend e-mailed me, asking if I could help her find some affordable dining room chairs. Her and her husband built an amazing dining room table, and saved a lot of money by doing it this way, but now she feels like all of their chair options will break the bank! SO I rounded up a BUNCH of my favorite affordable modern dining chairs. First though, check out this amazing table they built!
**Post Contains Affiliate Links** The definition of “affordable” can vary greatly from one person to another, but for the sake of my roundup I only included chairs that were under $50 each. Some were MUCH cheaper, others pushed the $50 limit.
Because my friend’s table is wood, I stuck to mostly metal and painted chairs. Rather than trying to match wood I like the mix of metals and woods. If the table were glass or even a painted table I’d consider wood chairs, but in this case I think metal chairs would look best.
Tips for Saving Money on Dining Chairs:
- Use a bench on one side of the table
- Use different chairs at the head and foot of the table
- Look at patio furniture that may work indoors
- Consider unfinished wood chairs that you stain or paint yourself
- Look on Craigslist and Facebook Sale Pages
In our last house I used these metal Windsor patio chairs from Target that I got on sale for $32 a chair! (Plus my 5% Target Card discount).
Then recently I found a gorgeous black wood table at the Restoration Hardware Outlet, and I’m still using those black metal chairs with it. Here is the post about my current dining room.
Although I LOVE the stability of our metal Windsor chairs, I’ve been contemplating bringing either more wood tones or some contrast to our dining room with some different chairs. To keep things affordable most of these chairs are under $75 each. Here are some of the ones I’ve considered:
- Adelade Chair 2. Green Forest Chair 3. Elbow Chair 4. Kaliko Chair 5. Beechwood Chair 6. Copley Chair
If you’re on the hunt for affordable dining chairs I hope this roundup helped! Thanks so much for stopping by to read! I’ve also included clickable links of each of the chairs below! (On mobile be sure to double click!).
