Dining room chairs
January 10, 2013 in Design Dilemma

It's my first post here, forgive me if I commit any faux pas!

I have been struggling to commit to dining room furniture. It is such a huge investment for something we will likely only use a dozen times a year. Anyhow...

I finally went ahead and ordered this table but am having buyers remorse-it's still in transit. Hopefully it will change when it gets here.

Please ignore the clutter in the room at the moment, I wanted to share the colors. Bad lighting on iPad camera too...

Chairs are the biggie - i will need 10-12. I am currently crushing on these green velvet ones, but I have been trying for a week to figure out the manufacturer. They are not: lee,Kravat, Pearson, hickory chair, freemarc...

We do have two small boys, so I am unsure about the reality of velvet. I am thinking I could do aniline leather on the seat and velvet on the back, but then I'd loose the skirt, which I think is why I am liking them so much. Also, how do you avoid the slipping off the chair with leather?

Finally, I am thinking I want to try a seagrass rug. Is this insane in the dining room? Stains & spills-wise?

Thank you so much for looking and your input!

Ps, I'm in Connecticut...

I have black leather Parsons chairs that I ordered from Carrington Direct online - they custom make great chairs and are located in NC - they ship. I live in SC and my sister in law ordered some (in TX) in fabric. I have never had any one slip off of the leather. I personally love, love, love them. But, that is my personal opinion.

With things costing what they do, I also have some older velvet Parsons chairs with a wooden table (both by Lane) that I have had for years. Glad to hear velvet is coming back (must have waited long enough, LOL) Mine are green velvet - yeah, I am in style again! They have been very durable and have lived through children who are now grown without problems. Hope that helps. My Grandsons love to eat in the dining room!

I have a photography shop on Etsy.com. Hope you will take a look. It is nancyhehmann. Just input that in the search engine. If you have not been on Etsy, it is a website with virtual shops and the owners are all over US and the world. You can easily contact shop owners with questions. You can find most everything there! Home decor, jewelry, custom made clothing.

Have fun with your new room! I love your table. Post pics when you are done.
