>> Grasshopper Chair by Weiki Somers (€222) - My current favorite unique design.
>> The Luxembourg Side Chair by Frederic Sofia - $250 - I have a sweet spot for this chair since I saw it first in Paris five years ago, but I get a little scared they're too industrial for a home. The silver color would probably be best.
>> Ipanema Chair from CB2 - $79.95 (on sale now) - This was Sara's first choice on color, quality and price. The chair is comfortable and surprisingly heavy, which means to me that it's well made and should last a long time.
>> Folding Bistro Paris Park Chairs - $141 - This is what we have had for a long time now, and recently refurbished by sanding and polyurethaning. You can find these chairs here: American Country Home Store and Cafe Society.
>> The Rex Chair from CB2 - $70 - I still like this one. It's really comfortable, durable, cheap and light (note: a commenter from last year has said it was problematic for sitting up to a table).
>> The Bellini Chair by Heller - $150 - This chair took us by surprise a few years back because it was so comfortable and indestructible. Used to be $99; it's gone up a bit.
>> Marais Chair - $250 (on sale now for $212) & Tolix Cafe Chair - $225 (On sale now for $199!) - These are also on Sara Kate's top pick list, but they ain't cheap for very low manufacture style. Although the colors draw me in, I like the plain zinc finish best.
>> Blanko Chair from IKEA - $19 - another colorful, simple, pleasing design from the Swedish giant with an insane price.
>> Facto Stacking Side Chair - $340 - These are another new find, with an interesting European MidC Modern shape.
"We got these for outside and love them, nice mix of contemporary and teak: Broadway stacking arm chair Broadway stacking arm chair by Sir Robin Day, manufactured by old-time UK teak company Lister. Nice sale price, though still expensive but investment for long-term."
"Check out IKEA TARNO folding chairs. They are very close to the Folding Bistro Paris Park Chairs but much cheaper ($15 apiece)." - posted by manjari
