NY Good Questions: Modern Chairs For This Farm Table?

Hello AT,

I'm moving into a large, restored factory loft with a white and stainless steel kitchen and polished concrete floors.

I wanted to warm up the space a little, so I was thinking about buying a long, rectangular farmhouse table and pairing it with white, modern chairs (Don't want to go with matching benches because I find that too much rustic furniture in an old, raw space can start to look theme-y)...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)

Do you think the Eames Eiffel side chairs be a good choice? Or would tying it together with the steel in the kitchen by choosing something like the Marais chairs in guntmetal be better?

I love the old Thonet No. 18 chairs, but worry that the woods may clash with each other and Thonet's longer table (KMS Dairy) doesn't have a whole lot of character. I don't have to go with this particular table, but really like the idea of a wood/modern contrast.

Thanks! Robyn
