Folding chairs are useful for picnics, watching sports or enjoying a day at the beach. Folding chairs come in every style, shape and size, so an average price is hard to pinpoint. A good quality and fashionable chair can cost upwards of $100. On the other end of the spectrum, a cheap in quality and cost chair can go for as low as $10 to $15. In the long run, though, consumers might be wise to spend the extra money on a good quality chair that will last many summer seasons.
