Whether you’re throwing a dinner party or gearing up for the return of holiday entertaining, you’re probably imagining your guests lingering at the table, as opposed to say, dining and dashing. One way to encourage this? Providing comfy chairs. The difficulty is that (particularly when it comes to dining chairs, for some reason) finding furniture that’s both comfortable and stylish can be a real challenge. With this in mind, we went looking for upholstered dining chairs that will be friendly to your guests’ backsides and bottoms while looking great in your dining room, too. From modern picks with clean lines and neutral hues to velvet wonders and, yes, even a rattan pick (it wouldn’t be us without one, would it?), below you’ll find 15 of our favorite upholstered dining chairs on the market today. Here’s to nights spent around the table with good people, great food, and even better conversation.
