No worries, take your time.

Poorsod, I prefer the Wegner chair....but if you can find them I prefer the cane seat.

Or the captains chair by Nakashima

I go back and forth depending on my mood.

Think it depends on what you'd be using them for. The complexity of the Nakashima chair makes it work much better as a standalone chair than as multiples around a table. The Chair is better as a dining chair, but there are other Wegner designs I prefer for that purpose.

Could be a fun inspiration type activity for this thread considering the dizzying amount of arguing lately

Does it have to be MCM or will contemporary modern work?

I like those quite a bit, I just don't think it'll be easy sell to her on most of those. 

 

In particular I liked this one

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

I think I've found that I really like brown wood with a gray and white palate, and she does as well. Now it's a matter of simplifying some of her choices. 

 

for reference, she likes stuff like this:

The only way i've really been able to describe what I don't like a about it is that there's too much going on.

Think you're screwed.

You can attempt fashion-shaming her. Modern is currently on trend. See Restoration Hardware's strategic re-focusing.

I have recently started a new practice, when we have guests, of getting up in the middle of dinner and going over to the sofa and taking a nap, at least until dessert is served. This design is great for that since the sofa is pretty near the dining room table. I also like how it has the back to the table, so you can just pretend to be asleep so no one will talk to you but you can still listen in case someone has anything interesting to say (for instance, I find that my family likes to mock me after I leave).
My advice to you is to not just think of design as an aesthetic value but also consider how you will use the space. The illustrated room looks great for falling asleep in, which has been an increasingly important feature for me.

I don't completely hate that style, I like it in certain instances, like a cabin or something like that. But I'd much rather have my home/apt be more aesthetically pleasing and simple.

I think the thing that bothers me the most is how cluttered it looks before actually living in it. If that makes sense. Where as more modern stuff you can live in it and it won't look nearly as cluttered.

Damn, that is rough. I think this 'style' was invented by furniture outlet sales staff. By assembling various horrible furniture togeather in some sort of simulation of a living space they have created a new reality. The Mall decorative style. Why would anyone want to live in it is a question for psychologist.

Thanks for your input. The chairs above are on auction at Rago next week. I might drive down this weekend to check them out.

I'm looking for a dining table chairs. I bid on a mismatched set of Hans Wegner chairs that had beautiful patina. I was hoping to get it relatively cheap because it was mismatched but was quickly outbid.

Anything Nakashima goes wild as well.

My wife and I might stop by this weekend as well.
