Designer products are much sought after and sometimes pricey, but modern chairs by well-known designers often combine great style and surprisingly affordable prices. Casual chairs like the Supernatural by Ross Lovegrove are designed using new processes and the latest materials to fit the human form with very organic lines.
The Supernatural, as in super natural design, is made in Italy of fiberglass reinforced polypropylene and comes in lots of stylish colors like the lime green we're showing. You can also choose from a solid back or one with large perforations like this one. The chairs are stackable and meant to be used inside or out.

Evoking visions of warm island breezes and colorful sunsets over the ocean, the Bahama Breeze Side Dining Chair offers a beautiful option if you're looking to buy new casual dining chairs. This piece is one of the many designer modern dining chairs available at StylePath.
These chairs would work well with many table styles and can be easily customized since the white cushions are just begging to be covered in your own fabric to tie them into your existing décor. Need more seating? The Bahama Breeze Collection also includes a matching arm dining chair, plus bar and counter stools.
With its thick comfy seat cushion and sculptural woven back, this chair may just cause you to linger a bit longer at the dining table.

Nothing says "the holidays" like a huge dining table loaded with food and surrounded by formal traditional dining chairs or handmade dining chairs. Sure a holiday celebration of food is a great time no matter the dining room style, but there is just something extra special about a traditional room at Thanksgiving.
We found this striking hand-carved Oval Interlace Dining Chair in a vintage distressed finish called Crossroads Rosa. A grouping of them would certainly make a dramatic statement around any holiday table. With all the elegance of old world charm, these chairs also feature beautiful hand-carved legs and coarse weave silk-screened botanical print seat cushions. The antique finish is distressed to give an extremely weathered look.
These chairs would be especially beautiful accompanied by a round wood pedestal or oval double pedestal table. Adding a coordinating console table or sideboard for serving desserts at a holiday dinner would be a great finishing touch.

London-based architect firm Foster + Partners, had a revelation to create a subtle all aluminum chair suitable for inclusion in their world class interiors. Simple modern dining chairs such as this were not available at the time among the many designer modern dining chairs on the market. So they set about to remedy this.
The objective: The chair’s design had to be low-key enough not to compete with the interiors it was placed in; be stackable to ten-high; be made from recycled materials; be super strong; light weight; fireproof; and comfortable.
The solution: Foster + Partners designed the chair with all the features they were looking for and worked with Emeco, builders of great chairs since 1944, to produce the chair.
The result: The Emeco 20-06 Stacking Chair made of brushed recycled aluminum king-sized and equipped with a stacking base.
The consensus: Very cool, classic and subtle enough to blend with most contemporary, modern and eclectic interiors.

These ultra modern funky dining chairs really are show stoppers with their black vinyl tuxedo design and chrome legs. The contoured back and well-padded seat will give you hours of comfort during long dinners with friends or playing Jinga into the wee hours of the morning. You can’t beat the price at $228.14 for a set of four! Pair them with an all white rectangular table for a really dressed up look.

This funkier than funky dining chair is named a Cradle Chair but it seems a "ghost chair" is more befitting. Made from clear acrylic, it has 50s inspired retro chrome legs and seat supports. It will look great around a solid black or chrome table accented with a bright red or yellow.

There is no doubt Egyptian-born, globally-trained designer Karim Rashid is trending volcanic right now in the design world. His designs are fun, feisty and rare gems. His self-proclaimed style—“sensual minimalism” or “sensualism” as he tells designboom.com in a Proust-style interview. Rashid accomplishments are so vast, we won’t begin to list them here, albeit he has seen and done it all. He even published a book entitled, Karim Rashid I Want to Change the World published by Thames and Hudson, 2001. (Photo Credit)
If you are the life of the party, people immediately befriend you wherever you go and you love color and lots of it, then Rashid’s style could be your own. He uses every color from the rainbow and some he has even created himself. Anyone that can wear a cotton candy pink suit and manage to look delicious and dashing at the same time has it going on in more ways than one. His designs have his personality written all over them. His penchant and talent for design is far reaching outside of his interior design spaces, he has his own lines of house wares, lighting, packaging, art, fashion, branding and logos, surfaces, fabrics, and furniture.
Everything he touches leaves a trail of vibrant color and shapes and curves that literally dance before your eyes in the most delightful way. Smashing hues of pink, purple, blue, green, red and more cover everything from sofas to hangers.
In honor of Rashid’s design genius, we’re excited to offer one of his brilliant designs…the Karim Rashid ButterflyChair in a bold turquoise hue, chrome steel frame and Italian design. This designer chair would make a perfect armless dining chair to accompany one of Rashid’s exuberant tables. If you can relate to this elegant seating then you may have just found the entry to your own StylePath. For more information about Karim Rashid and his world view his presspak.

You avoid the beaten path at all costs, you think outside the box (you hate the phrase), and you continually fight for your right to be funky. If this sounds like you, then Verner Panton surely must have had you in mind when he designed the limited edition Panton chair.
Panton, touted as one of Denmark’s most influential 20th century interior and furniture designers, is best known for his Panton chair design. Reinvented in a new color every year since 1967, this award-winning chair has seen the inside of many museums, famous homes and unexpected places like Bohemia’s St. Bartholomew's Church designed by QUBUS. (Sorry, the cross design isn’t available to the public.) Church Interior
The Panton, molded out of a solid piece of fiberglass-reinforced polypropylene, is manufactured by Vitra of Germany. This chair may be a piece of art, but its naturally flowing curves and flexible nature make an "oh, so comfortable" place to rest.
Make a strong design statement or add a splash of color (retro pink and light blue were 2007’s color offerings) to your dining room by pairing four or more with a bent glass table. Equally suited for outdoor use, the Panton can take a beating due to its UV and weather-proof shell which contains additives to prevent fading.
Due to the Panton’s limited edition status, supplies are, you guessed it, limited. The $260 price tag makes it a steal. It’s exclusively available through Hive.

Ultra modern and super sleek this set of 4 Dragones chairs are sure to woo you and the Gina table alike. Made of a chrome base and bent plywood veneer in a wenge finish, the set is available for an unbelievable $218.00 price tag.

For proverbial traditional styling, parsons chairs are a must. Powell created these handsome camel back chairs with small nailhead trim for maximum comfort. Situate four of them in Paisley Chenille with the Gina table for hours of enjoyment dining and discussing the arts and how to solve the world’s problems.
