dining chairs options....

The table re-do is finally in progress and I'm now shopping for new dining chairs! I will finally replace my mix-matched-windsor-style-once-oak-painted-black-chippy-paint (not in a good way) old chairs. Of course, it's the same scenario with me once again though, I cannot make up my mind!!!
I have dreamed about upholstered Parsons chairs with brushed nickels brads in a pretty shade of grey.....


 and I really love the wicker version.....
                                 

I also considered a pretty pattern like this....


and even thought about going with something very neutral like this.....
                                  


and then I went back to this again.....


I knew what style chair I wanted, I just couldn't decide on the color/fabric.


And then it started, the second guessing.....

I started searching through more dining chair options and while I really love these metal beauties.....



this style is what kept jumping out at me.....





I love the X backs of these chairs.

I wasn't sure though if they were a current style, but realized I was on the right track with this choice when I saw Erin's recent blog post (Sunny Side Up)....her dining nook chairs! Oh my!!

So now that my Parsons chair dream has been replaced, and I've decided on the style, I have to now decide between an all wood (in a dark tobacco finish).....



an all metal (my current favorite)....



or a combo of wood/metal.....


Decisions.....Decisions......Help!!!!

Wow! So many options! I love the all wood ones...maybe 'cause they're a lot like mine.;) I'm sure whatever you decide on its going to be awesome!

How many chair are you doing? 4-6? You could always do 2 Parson chairs at the heads of the table and 2-4 X-back ones on the sides. If the legs of the parsons chairs and the material of the X-back ones were the same, I think it would look fab!

Shelli~ that's exactly the route I'm now going. Except, somehow, I've fallen back in love with my windsor chairs! I am thinking 2 windsor (painted not sure what color yet) and buy 2 parsons chairs!! :O) Mixing it up- that is all I've seen while searching dining chairs.
