Peyton sent in an email: "My husband and I are moving into a new place... and with a new place comes the excuse for purchasing new furniture. We're finally retiring our dining table and chairs (a beautiful mid-century pine set that I inherited from my grandmother), because they don't fit the space. We've decided on IKEA's Docksta "Saarinen-inspired" table, (I know, I know... the original isn't in our budget) but can't figure out what chairs to go along with it. I absolutely love the Cherner side chairs... but, alas, they aren't in the budget, either. Can somebody out there help me?"

These days, we are liking Breuer style chairs with tulip tables - here are two inexpensive options that would work with the Docksta:

Left: Pony Dining Chair, Oat, $119. at CB2
Right: Tobias Chair, Clear, $89. at IKEA

(That said, we think most chairs look good around a tulip table!)

AT readers, can you make any seating suggestions for Peyton? Let her know which chairs you'd choose in the comments...
