If you're lucky enough to have room for a dining table and chairs, you know that buying dining furniture can be quite the investment. If you've never looked for dining chairs before, the sticker shock can be real, especially when you realize that you're going to need 4-8 of each of those chairs (what do you mean it's $600 for one chair and not the set?!).

But don't fret! If there's one thing we're good at, it's scouring the internet for beautiful furniture, and naturally we want to pass along our good finds to you. Below you'll find chairs for every budget, from the starter home (champagne taste on a PBR budget) to the "we're ready to invest" stages of life. Plus, styles for every type of couple—mid-century inspired, modern and minimalist, classic and more! And don't forget, if you're into vintage and want to mix some in, go for it! We love the look of a table that has similarly styled (in color palette and design) but mis-matched chairs. Because why choose one when you can have them all?
