January 12, 2013 in Design Dilemma
So I purchased this wooden dining table,it is coming in about two weeks (but I can return it if I change my mind).it looks much better than in this picture. I really need some advice about chairs .I need to seriously start looking for them. I already asked but only one person on Houzz replied.:(Can you guys give some ideas. I searched thru Houzz photos and there is only two options that I liked but not sure if it would work for me.Here is my space and table that I purchased. Glass table is my old one. Thanks

HEY, SONDRA, SORRY ABOUT THE CAPS, BUT THE KITTY IS HANGING OVER MY ARM, SNORING.

I LIKE THE TABLE AND IT GOES GREAT WITH (she's down) your brown and white rug. The rest of your apartment does not look Pottery Barn to me, so I am betting you want something more eclectic?

My first thought is that adults do not like to eat sitting on benches.

Other than that, it is a lovely set.

Yes you are right Judy I don't want Pottery Barn look.This is another one to complement coffee table but would leather chairs be too much leather?

Not at all, especially if you do the two colors as in the pix (that looks great!) or mix them with a different pair. What do you think of the three in the grouping?

Check overstock.com. I got my dining chairs there and a few weeks later I was in a very nice furniture store in Boston, and there they were for $700.00 more per chair! http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Jazzy-Bonded-Leather-Cream-Side-Chair-Set-of-2/6585120/product.html http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Dijon-White-Faux-Leather-Side-Chairs-Set-of-2/5230562/product.html

I think they have that Michael Thonet style chair on Overstock or World Market. I saw it online one day this week.

Do you like the upholstered ones in the picture you posted. I think upholstered chairs would be nice in your room.

I like upholstered chairs but I prefer low back style for more casual look.

Don't know how to put a Houzz pic up here, but wondered if the Terai Folding chair in the Houzz products might be an option.

I bought this table from pottery barn less than 3 years ago and it scratches so easily!! I talked myself into keeping because of the distressed look, I thought scratches would blend in but now it looks terrible. Even tried to return it about 3 months ago. Seriously consider if you want to keep this table, especially if you have children!

While I agree with Aja about the bench... I really like those "parson" chairs shown in the picture. They are available everywhere in solid leather or patterned upholstery and can slide right next to one another if you have a big family. ☺

The thing is I hate bonded leather. Any other material that does not try to copy the look of leather is fine but those shiny fake looking leather chairs...... Fabric chairs are great but kitty might like to use their backs as a nail file.

It comes down to something like this. I can find these chairs reasonably priced and I believe they will complement rest of the room.

I'm not sure the chrome legged chairs work well with the rustic table style.

Terri I like it how it looks on the pic above (livingroom dining room with white and black chairs-chrome legs). Isn't that kind of look that I would be able to achieve? Maybe I don't see where the catch is.

Carbary thanks. I will consider that style for sure. Home Sense has lots of those, I can try and return if I don't like it. I can return table as well so I can experiment. Teri made me reconsidering chrome legs idea because of X shaped table legs.I can't find any photos with that combination. If you guys find it please post it,thanks.

Sondra, since you like wood and like eclectic, go to your local not-quite-antique store and pick out some mismatched dining chairs that you like. You could get six different chairs and cover the seats in the same fabric.

I think the chairs Carbaryl posted would be good. Interesting shape, contemporary, yet organic enough with the wooden legs that they wouldn't be too jarring with that table.
Ultimately, what works best is what you like though.
