Depending on the size of your home — or your typical dinner party — designing a dining room from scratch can be an expensive task. Not only do you have to shop for a sturdy table, but buying anywhere from two to 12 chairs for said table can add up fast. And it’s not exactly a spot where you want to cut corners (no one likes a rickety dinner perch) or mix and match several thrifted styles, if that’s not your vibe.

Luckily, there are tons of beautiful dining room chairs on the market for under $100 each (or even less). From classic Parsons-style upholstered chairs to more industrial metal designs, you can easily achieve the look you want on the budget you need if you know where to shop — and we do. Below, the best dining chairs under $100 to help you complete your dining room ahead of your next dinner party — with cash to spare for takeout.
