Good Questions: New dining chairs?

Good Questions: New dining chairs?

Zeb sent an email: "OK, I have a problem. I have an original Tulip table that I recently added a wooden top to, measuring 60".

I have four chairs to go with it, the originals. They are not comfortable, and I entertain on a weekly basis, so I need something quick. I walk the line between "NYC Artist's loft" and "Mid-Century Fanatic", as well as throwing in found objects quite a bit.

Question is this: What am I going to do for chairs? I cannot spend a lot, but I need something soon. I toyed with the idea of getting a bunch of chairs that don't match, painting them all white and calling it done.

I fear that might get a LITTLE too "shabby chic" for my taste. I am e-mailing a few pics from the first dinner party, but there are many changes since then."

"Since these pictures were taken, I have added a butcher block top to the island in the kitchen, added turquoise raw silk panels on top of the panels in the dining room, two mid century U-shaped wood chairs to the living room, thus moving the orange paisley chair to the entry/book area."

Apartment Therapists of Chicago, what do you recommend for Zeb?
