Best Folding Chairs 2008 (some are cheap too!)

Email from 8.1.08

So, you live in a shoebox, but you want to be able to have dinners for 8 at the drop of a hat? The table isn't hard to figure out, but the chairs take up WAY too much room. Folding is the only way to go, but many are ugly, cheap or simply don't fold flat enough to make them really space efficient...

I was working with a client this week on just this problem and so I have for you my new, updated list of Best Folding Chairs. Disagree or want to add one? Email me: maxwell @ apartmenttherapy . com.
