Wouldn't you love a seat around this table? Actually I'd like several of them. Any of these would be welcome at my place, but I'm especially partial to the classics - the Tulip chair, designed by Eero Saarinen for Knoll in 1956, the DSW chair designed by Charles & Ray Eames in 1950. And of course, the most copied chair of this era, the Series 7 ply chair by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen, which originally debuted in 1955. The new kid on the block is the lovely ash Bac chair by Jasper Morrison for Cappellini - a mere 2009 toddler alongside the others.
I love mis-matched chairs around a table. They seem to suggest an informality, and a welcome to all. Kind of a 'pull up a chair, there's room for everyone' attitude. And I love lots of convivial food and wine at any time. And in this lovely room I should imagine that I could start the day with coffee and the newspaper, and perhaps just hang around all day, waiting for conviviality to drop by.
