Help with dining chairs to this table

Hi all, my first ever post on Mumsnet so please be nice.
I've gone on a whim and bought this table which I love and went a bit cray and also bought two 'accent' dining chairs with the hope I'd then find four matching chairs that I like, that don't need to be wood, and preferably either faux leather or plastic so it's easy. It is going in the dining area which backs on to the living area but it's sort of zoned, so this dining area has an accent wall...
Any ideas on what dining chairs to go for and also if you think this is evn going to work?
The kitchen which is to the left of where the dining table will be is semi open plan with grey handless matte finish.

Thanks in advance!

Are the chairs black painted wood?

Next clearance section often has good deals on dining chairs.

Not coming with chair suggestions but I love that table - where did you get it?

Mathurini Sat 13-Oct-18 09:10:36

Hiya, yes the ones I have bought are, but I wanted to get four chairs that are different in style to the ones I’ve got. I was thinking of ones like these

Table is from swoon editions, still in stock I believe! Please help me with the chair situation, I thought I’d get way more replies than this! Thanks

I think the first chairs you posted would be good. The shapes compliment each other perfectly. I think that style in black with wooden legs would look great

Mathurini Sat 13-Oct-18 09:52:36

Sorry which picture comes up first? It comes up in a muddled order for me! Thanks I really value the input!

Its the ones that look like the eames style chairs.

Something like this

The simplicity of the design is a more modern twist on your other chairs

Thanks @yewtown, my only concern was because it’s for my parents as opposed to me, they may prefer the look of the ones that are more traditional chairs - hence I posted the leather look ones too. I agree with you too though!

Not sure what age your parents are but I'm in my fifties. If they are older and more traditional then a matching style may be the best idea

Mathurini Sat 13-Oct-18 11:48:14

Yeah they are late sixties. Although my mum would like the modern style, I think my dad would probably want something padded. Out of the others I had linked, do you reckon either of those would go? I thought the ones with the copper legs might look nicer than the dwell ones

Yes I think I agree although I think I would probably prefer wooden legs. The Dwell legs look as if they are much redder than the table. I would probably match the chairs though. The carvers would look brilliant with Diego chairs.

Mathurini Sat 13-Oct-18 14:09:59

So sorry but what do you mean by carvers and Diego’s? I just liked the look of the accent chairs and didn’t know if they had a particular name! Thanks muchly for all the advice! Usually these kind of questions get loads of answers or opinions!

Sorry for another chair option but how about these? And which leg stain? My wood has a slight grey oak tinge, attaching a sample of that too!

OP’s posts: |

The darker one I think. I think it will look better with your carver chairs

Mathurini Sat 13-Oct-18 21:36:39

Thanks @Yewtown, I'll post a pic once it's ordered/delivered and in situ, if you are interested!

I am sure it will look beautiful and can't wait to see it.
