51 Side Chairs with Versatile Placement Possibilities

Side chairs are a versatile essential. At the dining table, they are prized for their compact footprints – ideal for the sides of a table where elbow room is tighter and where armchairs may not fit. But they also have value elsewhere around the home as well. Stylish side chairs are often used in lieu of a bench at the entryway, easily moved out of the way when needed. They are also a favorite addition to spacious bedroom arrangements, often paired up beside an occasional table and used as a casual coffee spot or workspace. In this compilation, we've collected 51 side chair ideas for any application and any budget.
