|Contemporary Chairs at Traditional Tables (and Vice Versa)|
As soon as we moved in I started hunting for modern-looking dining chairs (which would hopefully stand out against the wood paneling. Part of the quirky thing about this new house is that about 70% of is covered in wood paneling. I'm slowly adjusting to this world of wood - it has given me the new project of creating a mod cabin style to fit our furniture. I may have just made that term up.).
Er, anyway. I liked several different kinds of chairs, all of them white. I particularly had a crush on these white leather chairs from Crate and Barrel (more as inspiration than anything else since they were way out of our price range if we bought them new):

Alyse and I swung by Crate and Barrel to try these out and we both agreed they were very comfotable. Trouble was, Ryan hated them. And any other white, mildly modern-looking chair. I must have shown him 15 chairs and he turned them all down - and I didn't want to buy furniture that my significant other was going to detest. I was really hoping to buy second-hand, though, because I like the idea of buying what's already out there. When I stumbled upon a set of chairs on craiglist that we both actually agreed on, I snatched them up immediately.
I am now the proud new owner of these dining room chairs, a fine example of vintage Danish Modern.
