Your home decor wishlist probably includes a dreamy accent chair, or a luxurious mid-century modern lounge chair. Though having ample stylish seating around the living room is key when entertaining — and relaxing, post-party cleanup — don't ignore the influence modern dining chairs have on holiday parties. Since the most important part of any holiday get-together is often gathering around the dining table to eat, the most important chair of the evening will be the one your loved ones relax in while they enjoy the meal.
You don't need to spend your entire holiday decorating budget on new chairs, though. Until Dec. 19, CB2 is running a sale on dining chairs and barstools, with prices up to 40 percent off. The sale prices are low enough to make buying an entire set of matching modern chairs wallet-friendly, or mix-and-match chair styles for a more casual look that'll still wow your holiday party guests.
If you're looking for an eye-catching chair to head your dining room table, CB2's black modern chair has a mix of striking details and subtle color. On sale for $212 from $249, the Sidera chair's color will blend in with any dining room decor, while the crosshatching and modern shape still give it the impressive aura head dining chairs require.
The Sidera's dark color also makes it easy to see why CB2 named black its 2018 holiday color trend. The neutral will flourish in large dining rooms where it has space to contrast, and elevate compact dining spaces that need a pinch of luxe in limited space. Style two of the chairs around your breakfast nook's table to make even a studio apartment kitchen feel ready for holiday entertaining.
Like the Sidera's airy back, but prefer metal over plastic? Don't miss out on buying the Ray Brown Leather Dining Chair on sale at $265 from $379. The vintage-inspired curved design echoes sophisticated Hollywood Regency shapes. The combination of leather and metal is interesting all on its own; the chrome finish of the steel chair body modernizes it, and the aged leather keeps the chair from feeling too industrial.
You have options under $100 if your holiday shopping got away from you and your wallet this year, as well. CB2's designers put just as much care into the most affordable options: The Sable Acacia Chair would make a smooth, contemporary addition to virtually any dining room, at an already affordable original price of $99.95. But during CB2's sale, you can score the chic dining chair for only $85. Line your table with the chairs, or order a few to keep on-hand for additional party seating that looks much more high-end than folding chairs.
You know you've thrown a good party when guests linger around the dining table, sipping on festive drinks and laughing.
