9 Modern Dining Chairs All Under $120

After a decade, it was finally time to upgrade our dining chairs. I considered many options and scouted thrift stores and barn sales for months. I knew I wanted something sturdy and timeless to fit into our neutral home decor. Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite modern dining chairs (all under $120) that would look great in any space!

dining chair tips

  • The top of the chair should be above the table height
  • If you’re working with a small room, choose an armless chair that can push all the way in
  • The chair seat should be about 12″ from the table top for leg room

Amidst my search, I found these beautiful wishbone chairs. They definitely feel at home in remodeled dining room. The rounded backs off sets all of the squareness going on in here.

The contrasting woven seat adds texture I’m always looking for! Here’s a few other chairs I had on my list:

Update: I moved homes after this original post and with the smaller dining space, I opted for these more streamlined wood chairs. The slide under the table and have a beautiful natural wood shade.

If you’re not sure about the size, I suggest using a dining chair guide or using furniture on hand to test out different heights and sizes.
