When you need to seat a crowd but can't compromise on storage space, turn to the trusty stacking chair. Always at the ready to welcome extra guests at holiday dinners or birthday bashes, they can be just as easily concealed in a closet or basement corner once the party's over. Where most stacking chairs skimp on style and comfort, this upholstered version from Room Essentials excels. The colorful fabrics liven up a room, while the padded backs keep guests in comfort. Available at Target; $39.99.
