In other words, completely illogical and a little dangerous.
As we eagerly await the completion of our custom-made farmhouse dining room table, my next obsession is the chairs that surround it. I love a good juxtaposition — and particularly with the midcentury modern coffee table and buffet in the adjoining living room, and vaguely MCM IKEA Karlstad sectional we plan on buying, it didn’t make sense to me to stay traditional or rustic with the seating at the farmhouse table.
For refreshers, our table will look something like this.
I’m a sucker for a farmhouse table surrounded by more modern chairs — particularly white chairs that offset the dark wood.
(solid wood with a “walnut-like” stain?)
And last, but not least, the IKEA Preben: It’s kind of a step in a different direction, but I like how it doesn’t scream IKEA and is also upholstered (even though it might be tough to keep clean).
So what do you think? I’m leaning toward the West Elm Scoop Back, IKEA Erland, or Restoration Hardware Vintage Steep Metal Chair.
Do you have a dining room chair that you love? Do you fancy juxtaposed-decor as much as I do?
