Which Chairs with West Elm Oryx Table?

Good Questions

Q: Help! I need the collective wisdom of the Apartment Therapy community. I found this lovely West Elm Source Oryx dining-size table on Craigslist, and it's perfect for my dining spot. But I'm stumped as to what style chairs to put with it!:

I need something visually light and affordable that doesn't detract from the cool table legs. I have a dog, so ghost-style chairs would get chewed up unless the legs were metal. I'm also not sure how comfy they are.

I've considered a campaign style like this or this IKEA one. Or I thought about a simple black metal chair with a seat I could recover in Kilim, Ikat or other ethnic fabric.

What do you guys suggest?
