Good Questions: What Chair to Go with This Desk?

Dear AT, I just bought this desk online. It is actually a vanity, but it is smaller scale and will fit well in my bedroom. My question is what chair should I choose to go with it? I have a low, modern bedframe/headboard that is light grey fabric, and 2 black dressers that are more traditional in style. I am trying to go for a glamorous look, but with neutral colors. I have been leaning toward the Philippe Stark Louis Ghost chair, but can't make up my mind. Can anyone offer some suggestions? Thanks, Lacey B

Dear Lacey B, The idea of pairing the Ghost chair (above) with this desk is a good place to start. Better still, what about the acrylic George II chair with tufted seat (the seat would definitely soften up the set, which we think is a good thing) from Plexi-craft (below):

Since it will be difficult to find a chair that will look like a true match (other than that vanity stool), perhaps you'd be better off to go the route of black wood - a more obvious contrast (that will also go with your other black furniture). Or how about the slim, simple, and stunning Giorgia chair from CB2 (below):

Definitely keep the chair small, though. You don't want to overpower that glamorous mirrored desk too much! Any other ideas out there??
