So we have narrowed down the type of chair we want to get to go with our table.

The only thing is there are a lot of choices for colors...
Do we get all one color?
If we get all one color, should we make it an interesting color
 or do we choose a neutral so we won't get tired of a bold choice?
(also, should we get two arm chairs for the ends of the table to change it up a little?)
OR
 should we go crazy and get different colors?

We know we want the eiffel bases for sure.
We are kind of leaning towards all one color.
I'm favoring white, since our dining room isn't huge and you can see it from all the other rooms.
We are painting all the walls white and I like the idea of the chairs blending in, but having major contrast with the teak table.

What do you guys think?


PS: our hands are sore from SIGNING ON THE DOTTED LINE (about 5,3497 times)!
It's official and we get the keys Monday night!
Yay!

    I like the idea of all white chairs, the only thing is will they get really dirty with little hands? If they are easy to clean then I'd go with all white! The contrast with the table would look good!

    Yay for your new home!!! Doesn't it seem like you sign your life away?! So excited for you guys!

    Ooooh, all white is my vote! Love that style, and I'm envisioning it with teak-so gorg! Can't wait to see pictures! And congrats on signing the dotted line, how exciting!! Xo, Katie

    White is always a safe and classic choice. Ian and I currently (and since we've been married) have turquoise chairs and still love them. Once we move into the new house though, I'm thinking I'll probably spray paint them a little bit light of a blue/green. I say, start with white and when/if you ever get tired of the white, you can always spray paint them (although those are pretty spendy chairs and you may not want to ruin the authenticity with spray paint...). Just an idea!

    we have 4 Greige and 2 orange in our place and love them both! white is clean and crisp but I have really enjoyed having some color. I hope you can find a better deal then the Herman Miller site. We got our Authentic set of 4 on CL for a little over the price of one on there...and our 2 orange ones on ebay for MUCH less (authentic as well) shop around!

    I think all one color is probably a safer bet, and based on your aesthetic, I can't imagine you getting a different color besides white!

    Love it, and definitely do white! I found a great website that sells both plastic and fiberglass replica's for a good price...and even though the real deal would nice, sometimes it's not always practical. They also make youth sized side chairs that I love! http://www.mattblatt.com.au/
