Good Questions: Mixing Brass and Nickel Finishes?

Hi, Need advice! I'm about to add two nickel Platner chairs (black upholstery) to my cozy livingroom of art deco, midcentury modern and warm colors and patterns. Lots of wood and exposed brick. I'm interested in these brass-finish Perry Table Lamps from Crate & Barrel, which I think would look really hot if I plunked a big piece of quartz or other mineral on the base. My question is, would brass look weird with the nickel-plated chairs? There is no other metal finish in the room. Thanks!
