Selena sent us an email: "I'm looking into replacing our dining room set. My husband and I have the luxury of having a separate dining room in a vintage flat (Avondale area), and the post you did about "wood and white" dining rooms is my inspiration.
My question is about low-budget white dining chairs -- I'm looking into Room and Board Jake or Ikea's Gilbert chairs. I want to know, #1, are they comfortable, and #2, are they easy to clean? (we've got two rugrats). The biggest thing, really, is comfort because our dining area is really the most used in the house."
Please help Selena decide with your comments - Jake or Gilbert?
