Side Chairs

Side elevation drawing of a woman sitting on a designer side chair

Side chairs are a versatile and practical furniture item that is easy to move and rearrange. By definition, side chairs are single person chairs that do not have arms. Side chairs come in a large variety of styles, materials, and shapes and are common for most environments—including cafes, restaurants, homes, and offices. Because of their flexibility, functionality, and often playful forms, side chairs are great opportunities to add a fun and useful accent to a space.
