This is one stop shopping for folding chairs. With Small Cool contest moving to a big conclusion this week (the final four of the Smallest Coolest Home Contest are up today!), we need a new post on one of the most important space savers on earth: the folding chair. For this year, I've updated the list based on your comments and added a number of posts that we've written on the subject that have also been very popular. Enjoy!
