Our chivari chairs will be $8.50 each and they come with a cushion. I have no idea how comfortable/uncomfortable they are but for us it is either that or no chairs at all! The other chairs that are nicer and look more comfy are way too expensive.

Have you considered renting chair covers for your venue instead? They may be cheaper than the chivari chairs. Hope This Helps

Pancy, I am going with chiavarichairrentals.com.  All rental places I have looked at are around that same price– $8 to $9 per chair range, which should include both the cushion and the setup.  The owner is a friend of a friend and they have gotten good reviews from some of the knottie bios.

As to, is it worth it?  Probably not.    But I started obsessing over them because ballroom chairs are so damn ugly.  I have been to events with chiavari chairs, and the room really does look more beautiful.  They are fine in terms of comfort; a little on the flimsy side, but not something that bothered me at a 3-hr dinner.

Chivari chairs really vary depending on location and in philly area, they ran from 6 to 9 dollars.  The great thing about these chairs are that they are so easy to transport, so you can use them for two purposes- ceremony and ballroom, or cocktail hour to ballroom/reception.  They are not super sturdy (you can’t stand and jump on them) but they’re comfortable enough. They should all come with cushions as well.  I say, go with the chivari chairs or so a chair coverup- the the chivari do look more elegant.

Worst case scenario, since you can’t use covers or if you don’t want to spend money on the chivari chairs, try renting a sash or something to "jazz up" the chair?
