Recommendations for Dining Chairs?

Good Questions

Q - We could use some help! After months of searching for a dining table we settled on The Rivet Table from CB2. Our problem is that we are at a loss for chairs to go with it. I know it's been shown with several different white chairs online and in the catalog, but we didn't want anymore white in our apartment. We also didn't really want to mix it with anything overly modern — ideally, we'd like to have some kind of contrast. We were hoping some of the amazing readers here would have some suggestions!

Also, we considered maybe mixing another metal chair with it...possibly Emeco Chairs or with the Marais chairs from DWR. Any opinions?

Editor - If you are looking for contrast, stay away from metal! I think you'd be surprised at how "cold" your very industrial table would look with industrial modern chairs. Avoiding white, I would look towards wood chairs with a natural stain. I've pulled some good options in a range of price points in the final image:

Matthew Hilton's Profile Chair - $390 each at DWR
STOCKHOLM Chair - $100 each at IKEA
OLLE Chair - $35 each at IKEA
Oval Back Dining Chair in acorn from West Elm - $160 each (discounts when you buy multiples)

Who else has suggestions?
