We are THIS close to pulling the trigger on the Chair One chairs. Comfort level is fine for us. Anyway, I don't see why you need super-comfortable dining chairs. We sit at the table to eat, and that's it.
I think they look great with the Saarinen on many levels. First of all, it's such a foundational, elemental table, that it pairs easily with different chairs and surroundings (Gomestar--I'm wondering why you think otherwise). Second, they make conceptual sense together. It ruins the point of the Saarinen design to clutter up the floor with chair legs, so one ought to pick chairs that are either pedestal-based or cantilevered. However, thin-necked pedestals look too close to the table's. So, the alternatives are to get the matching Tulip chairs (not going to happen) or something more distinctly divergent. The, chunky concrete base of the Chair One fits the bill. Lastly, the forms are visually complementary. The skeletal, geodesic structure of the chairs draws a nice contrast against the solid, round form of the table, but also nicely echoes its curvature. Whereas the visual heft of the table is up top, it is the other way around for the chairs.
We had previously wanted cane, armless Cesca chairs.
