Affordable Lounge Chairs and Cocktail Tables

A round cocktail table surrounded by four comfy lounge chairs seems to be the perfect arrangement for sharing drinks and conversation with friends, playing board games with family, or just reading the paper with a cup of coffee. There is no rule stating that a cocktail table must be flanked by a sofa and two chairs, so why not shake it up just a little?

This alternative set-up would be ideal for a long living room that can accommodate two seating areas, one with chairs for conversation and one with a sofa for movie watching. Also, some homes have a formal dining room or living room that is rarely used but might get some play with a new seating arrangement.

The problem is, four club chairs or lounge chairs can be rather pricey. We sought out chairs that were attractive, very accessible and under $500. To make it even easier, we found a few round cocktail tables too.
