Those are going to be the most awful dining room table chairs of all time. OF ALL TIME.

And maybe it's just me, but I hate hate hate that white range hood. And the ceiling. And how the range hood meets the ceiling.

Where does the flue stack go???




Foo, how the hell are your guests going to get in and out of these chairs? Either the chair is far enough out from the table from them to comfortably plop into it, but then they can't reach the table and wind up dragging an 85 pound boat anchor across the floor, or the chair will be properly snugged up to the table and impossible to get in and out of. It starts to have the feel of an MIT team challenge or something.

Don't restart this discussion, it's been discussed to the end and beyond.

Thanks. Thats why I am sceptical about the chair as a dining chair.....because I have one.
Don´t get me wrong they are one of the coolest things around and always a talking point among guests.
They are relatively heavy. I have the swivel version which moves but recenters itself if you get up.
For outside use they are great but as dining chairs I´m not so sure. One thing I will say and Mafoofan if you are reding this. Get some cushions made for them.
They are not comfortable for sitting on for an hour or more. The Magis cushions are way too expensive so just get some made up

Sat in the chair ones at the Louvre yesterday, very uncomfortable to sit in. They are built to be around long after the nuclear holocaust however.

Yeah, cockroaches and that chair will be the only survivors.

 

SG, stop reading SF on your honeymoon.

Yupbthatsvwhy I suggest a cushion. Thats also why I only have one. It's more of a party piece and art work that can stay outside and weathers well.

I don't understand how Mrs. foo.gif signed off on that decision.

Why would you want a comfortable dining chair? Dining is to be done only perfunctorily before returning to sit, rigid and upright, back on the Knoll sofa for five more hours of talking past each other. With your stocking feet in the second fringe.

Been thinking about getting an ice bucket - maybe something in pewter. Any suggestions on where to get one of solid quality -probably not too vintage since I don't want lead?

Anyone here have a Hall Tree?  I am thinking an all-in-one piece with coat hooks, bench, and under the bench storage would be best.  Am I crazy for wanting one?

 

Example:

 

This one makes me think I could build one combining an old door and stand made of similar wood and width.
