16 Gorgeous Dining Chairs That Are Currently On Sale

By Samantha Daly
You’re gonna want to sit down for these deals from Design Within Reach and HAY.

Pull up a seat to this enticing sale: From February 11 to 23, Design Within Reach is offering 15% off dining furniture and decor—including designs from Knoll, which ship free. And as if that weren’t enough, HAY is slashing 15% off seating and dining essentials. Being chair fanatics, we’ve created a list of discounted seating options that are not to be missed.

Ton Salt Chair
The compact footprint of the Salt Chair makes it a smart choice for cafés or just about anywhere you need to maximize seating. Unlike chairs that have widely splayed legs, a Salt Chair can be placed side by side with another without wasting space in between.
Knoll Cesca Chair
Three years after designing his iconic Wassily Chair, which is believed to be the first bent tubular steel chair design, Marcel Breuer created the Cesca Chair (1928).
Design Within Reach Contour Chair
“Chairs and stools are mostly seen from the back, so that panel was crucial,” says designer Hallgeir Homstvedt.
HAY J 42 Armchair
Danish designer Børge Mogensen worked as a cabinetmaker before studying furniture design at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts and training as an architect at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.
Norm Architects Karimoku Case Study Chair
Bringing together the design philosophies from Japan and Denmark, the Karimoku Case Study Chair (2018) by Norm Architects delivers exceptional craftsmanship in a minimalist, inviting piece.
Knoll MR Side Chair
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s MR Side Chair was designed in 1927 as part of his contribution to the Weissenhof exhibit in Stuttgart, Germany. The chair’s cantilevered design uses tubular steel, then a technological novelty, to create an intuitively accessible and ergonomic seat.
Moller Model 77 Side Chair
Møller furniture is made by a company founded in 1944 by Niels Otto Møller, a craftsman who “never compromised on anything,” says his son. Even today the company uses old craft traditions like handwoven seats, which on the Model 77 Chair (1959) are made from a single 425-foot-long cord.
Carl Hansen & Søn Wishbone Chair
Using the best natural materials and refined steam-bent methods, Wishbone is made to last for generations. In 1944, Hans Wegner began a series of chairs that were inspired by portraits of Danish merchants sitting in Ming Chairs.
Gubi Beetle Side Chair
The Beetle Side Chair (2013) is built on a sturdy frame that cradles the sitter in comfort from seat to back while striking an interesting silhouette between traditional and surprising.
Knoll Saarinen Executive Chair
The Saarinen Executive Chair (1946) was originally made of fiberglass but was later updated in polyurethane. The feel remains unchanged as the molded shell flexes slightly with the sitter. The contoured plywood seat is supported by metal or wood legs.
HAY Palissade Dining Armchair
For the Danish design company HAY, brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec created the Palissade Collection (2015). Designed in color and form to integrate effortlessly with its surroundings, this collection stands out for its combination of visual simplicity and core strength.
Emeco 111 Navy Chair
The form of the 111 Navy Chair (2010) derives directly from the legendary 1006 Navy Chair, which was designed for use on WWII submarines, where durability was vital.
Knoll Nakashima Straight-Back Chair
Geroge Nakashima was an MIT-trained architect who described himself as a “Japanese Shaker” – an expression of his interest in creating unadorned, functional objects.
Case Eos Chair
When we asked Matthew Hilton to identify the common elements found in his work, he replied, “Functional, stackable, it has to store easily and be a good price.” Fast-forward to today, and he’s still staying true to those ideals.
Kartell Louis Ghost Chair
The Louis Ghost Armchair (2002) is a postmodern triumph of technical innovation and historical style – a reinvention of the classic Louis XVI armchair in a single form of transparent injection-molded polycarbonate. Louis Ghost is a robust chair with a medallion backrest for leisurely comfort.
Knoll Brno Flat Bar Chair
The Brno Flat Bar Chair (1930) offers the comfort of an armchair without the stuffiness or bulk. The triple-plated chrome, cantilevered bar stock steel lends the chair its strength, while the padded full-grain Spinneybeck leather seat will only get better with age.
