If you find you need extra seating, but don't like ugly folding chairs, then this West Elm chair is an excellent solution. These good-looking, modern, bent wood chairs are stackable, so they have a small footprint in a storage closet or the corner of the room. Their design is somewhat reminiscent of an Eames molded plywood chair, and they come in three attractive colors: birch, white, and walnut. Better still, they are currently on sale for $84 (normally $99).
