Which chair would you choose?

Hello. Which chair goes better in our dining room (with the chandelier, etc.)? We use this space for every meal and have a three year old and one year old. We like Scandinavian design but also the homes of Jenna Lyons and Keri Russel. We are replacing the table with a more straight-legged modern one like these: http://www.roomandboard.com/rnb/product/detail.do?productGroup=2554&catalog=filter&menuCatalog=room&menuCategory=197&menuSubcategory=152
http://www.westelm.com/products/metal-and-wood-dining-table-72-h235/?pkey=cdining-tables&cm_src=dining-tables||NoFacet-_-NoFacet-_--_-

Table recommendations also welcome. :) Thank you!

Thanks for your comments. Curious to know why you would choose either. Personal preference? Goes best with our design likes. One has more longevity? Thanks.

In the image with all he elements as is, that would be the one I picked, I like the play between the contemporary and traditional with the chandelier, mirror frame. I actually don't think the new table will work as well..

I agree with Sustainable. I like either of these better for your space: Bottega Side Chair
Bellini Chair - Room & Board

I like the metal leg chair with the roomandboard table and the wooden leg chair with the westelm. I don't like either with the current table.

Hi! I think that you can go modern and clean with your chairs in a different way, because to me, the backs of those chairs are too short. Here are a few options for you:

Hope this helps!

A shot of reality, get two upholstered chairs on each end, then wood chairs in a simple design for the sides.

Thanks for all your thoughts. The table is much more traditional for us, which is why we are getting a new one. We are looking for a more modern, family-centered, inviting look. I can see how the chandelier may look better with more formal chairs but I think it also works with the more modern ones; just not sure whether to go with the wood legs or the metal ones. I'm going for something more like this: http://www.elledecor.com/celebrity-style/keri-russell-at-home-69262-4#slide-4

Thanks, again!
