Designers Rate: Stacking ChairsBeth A. Rooks, IIDA, LEED
I love that this chair has flex in the back and is comfortable for all body types. It comes in great colors and is available as a bar stool, which is helpful for projects that need both heights.
Orbit offers great design along with sturdiness and durability at a great price.
The Kart chair nests rather than stacks. It is a great alternative to a stackable training room chair when you want the ease and comfort of a castered chair with the ability to store them in a small space.

I like the clean look and informal feel of Caper. It combines up-to-date materials and good engineering detail in a chair that is not only nice to look at but also encourages the user to interact. It's a very positive design for interactive settings. I feel like I'm going to be productive when I sit in this chair!
Perry is a no-brainer—good design, well constructed, easy to care for, fairly comfortable, and the price is almost always right.
Cachet was bit gangly in appearance when I first saw it, but what a cool chair! It appeals to the industrial designer in me—very user interactive, neat engineering, and the latest in material technology. It has all the answers.
