Modern Accent Chairs for Our Country Kitchen?

Good Questions

Q:I am looking for two chairs to be accent kitchen table chairs. Our table is wood, painted silver, and the six chairs are vintage school chairs with a very faded yellow paint. I love the chairs and don't want to paint them, but I would like two accent chairs that are a little more modern since the chairs and table and the wallpaper (Amalienborg Celadon) in the coffee maker nook all tend toward country.

Our kitchen is white with a grey/white marble backspash and honed black granite countertops. I love the Eames molded plastic chairs and the metal navy chairs, but I don't want our kitchen to look like "the kitchen design blogs made". Any other suggestions? Thanks.
