Dining Rooms

We renovated our kitchen, bathroom and some other areas of our house two years ago.  But it seems that we are never completely "done".  We finally replaced our dining chairs recently after much indecision and deliberation.  Here are some photos of some dining rooms I really like which were quite an inspiration.  The photos are from Living etc. ...a British modern home decor magazine which I read cover to cover every month!  You can see more pictures from their gallery!

I think you will see some similarities in these rooms, like the Eames chairs with the Eiffel bases.
 
 
I really like the Normann Copenhagen Norm 69 Lamps!  I also love the natural wood tones of the floors, table, and Hans Wegner Wishbone Chairs.
We also considered these Eero Saarinen Tulip chairs and table.
 
We even considered other modern plastic options like Ron Arad's Tom Vac chair...but we already have the rocking chair.
And other white options...
 
And here is what we finally settled on...the Eames Molded Plastic with Wooden Dowel Leg Armchairs!  This is a photo of our actual dining room!  Ta dum!!!  (I think we still need something on the wall...and to have a dinner party!)
The resin Marcus Bowl is on the back table and the Hannes Vessel with the plant is on the dining table!  The cushions are by Jenny Sauer from Three Sheets 2 the Wind.  She makes the most beautiful handmade textiles and prints!  I have them throughout the house!
