Best clear chairs Thrifter 2020

It's one thing to buy a chair. It's another thing to buy a chair that fits a theme or your home's decor. If you're looking for a certain level of elegance in your home or you just want to see what's behind you when you go to sit down, you need a clear chair. These chairs are often designed with a single mold so they are easy to carry, easy to clean, and come fully assembled. Sometimes that's not the case, but either way, what you get is a durable chair with high weight capacity and a great look for your home. Here are the best clear chairs available.

Transparent Value

Plastic chairs don't tend to have a very positive place in modern home design, but clear chairs, which are mostly made of polycarbonate, flip the script. They just look good and feel contemporary in a way regular plastic chairs don't. Plus, these chairs are really low maintenance. They're easy to clean, and dirt is easy to spot since the chairs are all clear anyway. Most of them come fully assembled or with molds that are easy to put together. Many of them, like the Poly and Bark dining chairs, resist weather and can be used indoors or outside.

They all have decent weight capacities, too. With the ability to be stacked, that makes these chairs great for events and offices and all sorts of situations. The Flash Furniture Chiavari chair even comes as a set of two so you can get a full set with some great value.
