Folding chairs are like your home's ever-reliable best friend: always there when you need them the most. Whether you have a tiny space or have a few unexpected guests dropping by, they tuck away neatly between uses. Most IKEA folding chairs are even designed to hang flush against the wall.
Whether we're talking tighter spaces or you need extra chairs for a holiday dinner or the Friday night poker game, foldable dining chairs are super functional. Store them away when not in use. When friends come over for game night or you have extra dinner guests, just bring them out and see what unfolds—besides these convenient chairs.
Be flexible with foldable dining chairs
Choose durable, versatile folding chairs you can use at the kitchen table and in your makeshift office. Stack them or hang them on a hook next to hutches or drawers or place them within closests. Taking these foldable chairs outside to the patio for a family barbecue is a breeze thanks to a variety of lightweight materials, including solid wood, powder-coated steel and polypropylene plastic seats and seatbacks.
Maybe you just reconnected with old friends and wow, they have a family of eight and are coming over for dinner tonight?! No problem. Break out the extra folding chairs from the closet and put the extra leaves in the table. While you have to question if you have enough food for a given dinner party, you don't have to worry about having enough seating.
Frequently asked questions about folding chairs
How do you store folding chairs?
Holes or larger spaces in seatbacks allow you to hang and stack most folding chairs from a hook next to cabinets, shelving or counters. You can also stack them against a wall adjacent to storage solutions or within a closet.
Can folding chairs be used outdoors?
Many IKEA foldable dining chairs can be used outside but should come back inside with you after your cookouts or after-dinner drinks are finished. For more rugged terrain such as concrete or brick patios, see the IKEA outdoor chair collection.
