A lot of design-savvy choices are available, including modern Victoria Ghost chairs by Phillipe Starck, shown here, and classic Verner Panton chairs. They cost about $15 through Town & Country. At the other end of the budget spectrum: Some customers forgo the ubiquitous plastic Samsonite folding chairs because they are often the cheapest (starting at $1.29 at L.A. Party Rents), but rental companies say they are actually quite comfortable.
