$63.99, Joss & Main
This family-friendly chair is made out of super durable walnut and hickory woods, so it can withstand years of wear and tear.

$296, Modway Lippa
For mid-century lovers, consider this walnut wood-finished back with cutout details, pin legs, and an upholstered fabric seat.
Handcrafted using the centuries-old bentwood technique and constructed from oak, the woven rattan seats work outside or indoors in a rustic kitchen.
A refined touch for an industrial-style kitchen, the chair's top-grain aniline-dyed leather upholstery has a patina that will only get better over time.
$399, West Elm
This chair's traditional form perfectly accents the understated linen fabric and the wood's weathered finish. It's best suited for sizable tables, though, thanks to its larger stature.

$349; Room & Board
This sleek chair is extremely light, so it's easy to move around. Plus, it's got a compact footprint and is stackable.
