Dining chairs

frenchystewFebruary 8, 2013
I built this dining table. I like it but I would like to get chairs in the same color scheme if possible modern or contemporary style but without breaking the bank, any ideas?

So you want black chairs again? Is that what you mean?

I would like to get chairs close to the table color. Wood and/or leather, no cloth.

In the photo below, the chair on the right might blend with your table. It's from West Elm and costs, I believe, $199. The color may be too burgundy.

I wouldn't try to match the wood. It will never work and would be boring anyway. I like the ones you have.

why is fabric out? I wouldn't do wood, first of all, it would be too uncomfortable and no one would sit for very long. Aren't conversations around the dinner table the best?! I'd go for a color...black is okay, if you can tie it in with other colors, but love the blue above that Carolyn has posted!

Those chairs that Carolyn posted are gorgeous! I think the beige or blue chairs in the photo would be great with your table.

Truthfully I don't see how you could match the wood here. There are too many tones.

You know all of the houses you see the leopard - print chair that seems out of place? Put them here. :)

To compliment your beautiful table I would choose something in Rattan or wicker also find a print for the wall of Africa and some wood work as well to add to your room ,here are the chairs that I had in mind

Olldbobbi, the wood was pine and I put a red stain on it (Minwax-gunstock 231). I used a ball pin hammer and hit the table everywhere to make the little holes on it. I used marine varninsh, 3 coats but it wasn't the finish I wanted so I used a resin mixture for the top to get the glass top look. I also turned a old Lowe's spool into a matching coffee table.

That's awesome! The problem with most marine varnishes is that they yellow so good idea with the resin.

Wow, that table came out really nice. The wood looks pretty unique, so matching it exactly might be tough, and a little contrast might be nice. We work with local, independent chair designers who specialize in modern design. I'm sure they could do something pretty affordable. Here is one option that would work, but checkout our site www.cutmodern.com

I built a lot of furniture in my time, your table is unique and I like it. Good luck with the chair hunt.
