The latest hunt that I am on is a hunt for a couple of Eames Eiffel Chairs.
I think these would be perfect for our dining table.
We have a gorgeous dining table that Mr White built back in the day when he lived on Lord Howe Island...the table top itself is built out of one whole singular piece of Norfolk pine..no joining pieces...just one huge slab..straight from the tree itself..yes...he helped lop, chop, cut and shape the tree ( with help of course) ..then shaped some more, shaved, sanded and polished to create a beautiful table...frame and legs made from the same tree...all by hubby's hands...alot of blood ,sweat and almost tears went into making this table....isn't he clever!
A few years back we were lucky to come across another slab of the exact same type of wood by a friend of Mr Whites....and so two bench seats were made to match the existing table...and they look awesome together...the whole setting weighs a tonne.
Only thing is that you cant sit on these bench seats for long periods at a time...so entertaining friends can be a bit of a drag when you have to retire to the living area because your back ends up seriously aching from the no support factor lacking from our seating.
So I thought a nice couple of Eames Eiffle Chairs would look fab as a little addition to the setting....just not sure wheither I should get 2, 4 or 6?
If I end up deciding on more than 2 then the bench seats will have to go...and I really don't want to move them as they are huge and heavy..although one of the bench seats could make an awesome coffee table?
I'm leaning towards the Chrome plated steel in this case...however Mr White prefers the wood???? Which I do love above the chrome if I had to choose which look I actually prefer....but in this case I think the chrome will have more wow factor against wooden dining table.
Does anyone own a set of these style of chairs? are they comfy?
