12 Vintage Chairs That’ll Catch Your Guests Attention

Aah the chair… you’re probably sitting on one right now without even giving it a second thought! Chairs have essentially been around as long as humans have been around in some form or other, and, while we’ve improved the design vastly, it’s still a pretty basic concept.

Luckily for us, the fact that it's a basic concept doesn’t mean the designs have to be basic. There are endless unique, colorful, and stylish chair designs that you wouldn’t dream of in a million years available right at your fingertips.

The difference between a chair and a good chair, however, is huge. And we want to ensure that whatever chair you have is not only beautiful to look at but is also perfectly comfortable. Size, armrest, softness, back height, chair height, and angles are all elements you should consider before purchasing the best chair for you. Take a look at our 14 picks of the coolest Hipster chairs.
