Q: I'm trying to find the perfect dining chairs to accompany my Burke Industries Saarinen knockoff table. I'd already had some Ikea chairs from my previous dining set, but around the new table, their tall, solid, rectangular shape makes them look to me a bit like Storm Troopers guarding the Death Star....

Not very inviting. So, I picked up a new set of chairs a neighbor was selling on the sidewalk. But now, the new chairs--with their various squatty shapes, dimensions, and surfaces--seem too...Ewok (to continue the Star Wars analogy). They're more open and inviting but also much less tidy.

At this point, I'm open to selling both sets on Craigslist in favor of something that is both sleeker and friendlier (C-3PO?), but I don't know what that would be.

Maybe I should just keep the Storm Troopers? Or try to spruce up the Ewoks? Either way, I've got to get rid of some of these chairs before they start to form an alliance against me.

Help me, Apartment Therapy, you're my only hope!
