Folding or Stackable Chairs? Cool ones preferred :-)

Does anyone have a good suggestion for cool folding or stackable chairs? I was thinking the default is some nice teak directors chairs, but I keep seeing brochure pictures of catamarans with amazingly cool chairs. When I google I can't find anything that looks as nice as those, and just find the regular old directors chairs.

We can seat 4-5 comfortably at the saloon table and have space for 2 more with folding chairs. We can seat 6 at the cockpit table but have space for 8 if we add some chairs. Right now we have a movable "poofster" with a cushion on top and storage inside that we move in and out of the saloon, but its a pain to move it in and out - it takes two people and can scratch the cabin sole in the saloon if you drag it.

Price is less a consideration than something that is nice to sit on, look at and folds sensibly.

Those are cool, but more lounging rather than dinner table. The main objective is something to sit in and drink a cocktail or at the cockpit table for dinner. We don't lack space, but want something for when we have guests.

Oh right, directors chair: Was at Pier1 this evening and they had some cool ones,
but they were not teak. What made them cool was the material, so if you are handy,
might just replace the material with some with cool nautical design.
This one is teak from amazon:

Thanks - that's the kind of thing.

These from the same company look nice, and would work better with a cushion also.

A lot of cruisers use these lightweight folding chairs. They fold to nothing and fit anywhere on the boat. They work great taking them in the dingy to the beach.

Good point - we have a bunch of those in the garage that we carry around in the car for watching the kids play baseball etc.
