I absolutely hate plastic furniture. You should look into the Taliesin, Barrel, Robie (all by FLW) or Mackintosh chairs, all made of wood and can be upholstered with leather or fabric.

Simple and elegant. Also very comfortable. I worked at a showroom back home and these were a big hit.

I guess dessert/espresso/brandy/scotch/wine table doesn't have the same ring to it...

Dinner, you're doing it wrong. Whenever we have people over we spend most of the evening at the dinner table.

That said, our chairs arent all that comfortable.
