Good Question: Do You Have "Head" Dining Chairs?

Good Question: Do You Have "Head" Dining Chairs?

Hi AT! I inherited a nice 6-person dining table and have no chairs! Since I'm buying from scratch, I'm seriously contemplating buying "head" chairs for the ends — would that be weird? I'm worried it'll look too formal but, at the same time, might look pretty cool! Do people still do this in our egalitarian society? Susan

Great question, Susan. We totally think it's appropriate for larger tables so if you want to do it, we say have at it. Eames shell chairs are great for dining and the arm chair version would make for lovely end chairs. You can often find vintage shells on eBay for cheap, just need a little refinishing. Or there's plenty of other options out there. Anyone have a suggestion?
