These days, people are mixing furniture styles, fabrics and finishes
—which means there's probably someone out there who'd love just one or two of your wooden chairs with the upholstered seats (so you can keep the rest and mix in some new chairs yourself). If they're painted white, even better: the light color makes them look modern. A set of two can fetch around $275.
