I need ideas about the Chair for my Dining Table

November 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hi, I have already bought my furniture for the living room from habitat.
However, i did not like their chairs. they are too heavy and with lots of fabric/leather.
I'm looking for a light and not showy chair because I like my table to be showy.
I plan to buy the x back chair with a navy fabric, assuming it will go with my navy sofas.
I'd like to have your ideas on it and of course any other ideas if you have.

To me, the x back would totally detract from the intricacy of the table legs. My cousin had such a table and she opted for "ghost" acrylic chairs. Very cool, mod, but blended well with her contemporary-traditional decor. They're also comfortable. Example: http://www.amazon.com/Designer-Modern-Louis-Ghost-Chair/dp/B004QJRXB0

Hi, thanks for the advise. you are right about the legs. ghost chair is a good idea. i'd like if there is an alternative chair with a fabric seat. what do you think if i can find a chair with legs similar with the table?

Love the table. I guess it's only available in France.
The chair you show is trying too hard to relate conceptually to the table. I see the relationship, but it just doesn't fit visually. If you want to relate to the table perhaps look at chairs by Bertoia or Eames. (Maybe that's too obvious.)
I'm not fond of the Ghost chair but the contrast with the table is good.

Dear Mark, I love the chairs. I may try to use them with cushions, i'll ask the local providers.
Dear David, you are right the table is coming from France. I also love the Bertonia.
All of the chairs are light, not busy but elegant., like i was searching. thanks so much.

I think they compliment the base of the table very nicely.

what do you think about the color? white seem pale. what do you think about green or yellow? I'll have two navy sofas next to the tables

I love Mark's choice. I have xback chairs at my breakfast table, and while I love them, would not want to sit at them for an entire dinner. Here are some additional options:

Mark, Margo, Brenda, chookchook, thanks for the ideas. I'm really glad that I found this site and your comments enlightened me.
Solincia I loved the chairs, esp at the left one. do you know where to buy it?

I see that Eames and Ghost are the most voted. I want to make sure our elders will be comfortable while they come to us for dinner. Do you think would it be weird if I use these chairs with pillows?

@sunnycloudy the chairs Myrone Delacruz just posted are quite nice and have the cushion that you are looking for for your family and guests. I do like the one you posted as well.
