Good Questions: Chairs for Vintage Dining Table?

I have this vintage wooden dining table with chrome legs. I would love to find just the right chairs for it. Since I want to fit 2 chairs on each side, they cannot be too wide. I like the idea of non-matching chairs (same color, different style or different color/same style). I can't even decide if I should get wooden chair or not. My budget per chair is under $200 (flexible, within reason!). Any Ideas?

This table is eearily similar to the design of my parents' dining table (that my dad DIY'd in the 70s). My parents have always had light colored Thonet cane chairs that have worked well. Anyone else have suggestions for chairs?
