Q: Hi! I recently bought these awesome medieval, ornately carved, dark brown wood dining chairs off of Craigslist for a total deal. I love their character (they are very Game of Thrones) but don't want the dark design elements of the chairs to bring down the entire mood of my living room, which has a lot of dark wood.

We live in a one bedroom townhouse so our dining area shares space with our living room.

How can I modernize my space but still keep these chairs? We have not bought a dining table to go with the chairs yet… The pictures below are from the original owners. I wish we had that much space to accommodate that big of a table, but we don't! Thank you!
