I'm also open to totally new suggestions for what sorts of chairs I should use. I have a very heavily wooded (and old, built in 1900!) house, with dark hardwoods and dark wood trim, so I need to keep the chairs pretty light to balance out the table/floors. For reference, here is a picture looking into the dining room from the living room in the early stages of moving in. Obviously that comically small table is on its way out, and the dining room itself is much larger than it looks from there. Thanks! I know you guys will come up with something brilliant!
