Nope.

The overwhelming majority of it is walnut. My general rule of thumb is to not go nuts in mixing lights and darks in the same room or floor (open floor plan) So the light woods in this case are kitchen cabinets and dining room table/chair but everything else are dark woods.

So I'm assuming that if I'm placing solid walnut pieces in the room, it would be just fine to do different species of walnut.

Those chairs look like teak to me, but I'm sure it will be fine.

If you are interested in seeing how i've mixed woods, I can pm a picture of my study, which I think is cohesive. It's mostly walnut, but with rosewood, ebony and cherry wood.

Woodworking bench. The shoulder that sticks out on the left will eventually be a shoulder vise and on the far end will be a tail vise.

Starting to put my new living space together... still have a couple sofas to add and this chair may or may not stay in the room. Its mate isn't shown here.

Thinking of buying this vintage piece and making some changes, such as the handles and the base. What I'd like to do is remove the existing base and replace it with 4 or 5 natural steel (powder coated) legs. Would this be a major undertaking, or fairly simple to do, assuming I only have standard tools (power drill, etc)?
