These 10 New Chairs Will Get You the Best Seat at the Table

Chairs: Jean-Pierre Vaillancourt

As editors, we’re always asked for decor advice, and at the top of that list is dining chairs. So many things need to be taken into consideration, from the right height for your table to the weight of the chair to the seemingly endless aesthetic choices: Arms or armless? Upholstered or more minimal? Is it OK to mix and match? (Yes!) What about a bench in lieu of chairs? (We’re split on that one—a little back support is helpful after a couple martinis.) The husband-and-wife team of Cristina Casanas-Judd and General Judd of Me and General Design also have strong yet informed opinions on choosing dining chairs so cool and comfy your guests may never want to leave—we asked them to dish on the spiciest new designs.
