I took advantage of a random sunny morning to snap a better photo of our “dining room” as it is right now. I should add that it isn’t so much a room as it is just the space next to the kitchen, separated from the living room by the couch and the entry way by that wall.
What are we going to do about chairs? We’re still dining at the coffee table in the living room while we watch reruns of The Office and Seinfeld. Those Ikea chairs I liked turned out to be poorly made and underwhelming in person. No surprise there. I found these industrial looking dining chairs and think they might work. I especially like the blue color. I like the Flanders Chair too, but it takes six to eight weeks to deliver. These chairs are a little pricey, but since we are only buying a couple we don’t mind paying a little more. As for a bench for the other side of the table, I like this one from CB2.
With friends and family visiting at the end of the month, we need to make a decision soon. Stay tuned!
