Here's a fantastic idea for anyone looking for uber-durable chairs but can't seem to find ones that fit the budget. Since so many manufacturers offer affordable outdoor chairs these days, you can bring the outdoors in — as long as you do so with a keen eye. Aluminum chairs like these work well with industrial or eclectic decor; they can also withstand wound-up kids who often spill sippy cups and strawberry ice cream where they sit.
Sticking with chairs not necessarily meant to go with dining tables is an excellent way to furnish a room and create a conversation starter at the same time. Sure, these hand chairs may be more bold than the average beige-tastic design lover can handle, but they definitely defy convention. Also, can you imagine all the one-liners guests would come up with here? "Let me give you a hand," "Your hand is touching my leg" and "I've got you in the palm of my hand for dinner tonight" are some of the worst, just to name a few.
