I love the black metal chairs at the table; does anyone know who makes them?

Yes, they are the Series 7 Chair - I've been working on a Modern Icons ideabook about them for awhile. They have them at hivemodern.com and dwr.com.

Thanks so much! Maybe one day soon I'll be posting pictures of my new breakfast nook with the Series 7 chair front and center.

Whoopsie! I was talking about the counter stools and not the ones at the table, I did not read your question carefully enough! Those look vintage to me but I'll keep my eyes open for them! Sorry about that!

Thanks. Once I looked up "Series 7 Chair" I realized that you meant the counter stools. If you find out anything about the other metal (I think) chairs, I look forward to learning about them.

I think I may have found them! Check out the Red Barn Mercantile's Prague Chair:

Also, the metal French cafe chairs (Tolix, Marais) from the 1930s are being reproduced like crazy - Sundance, DWR, Anthropologie, Pottery Barn, etc. They have a somewhat similar aesthetic.

Oh, and it looks about $65 cheaper here:

Search "metal Prague chair" to find it at different places.

Dear Becky, Yes -- you found them. Thanks! Not only did I find the chairs (which look better than they probably feel(, I also just found a great online store I didn't know about: http://www.mothology.com/default.asp

Thanks all around. Best, Jemjones

I actually have these in my dining room, and they are actually comfortable:

1934 Dining Chair at Sundance if that link doesn't work!

I'm off to check out mothology!
