oh man i love these chairs. can't you just seem them with crisp linen cushions or something with nice white piping? they're not horribly expensive ($325 for the pair) but i figured the last thing we need is another pair of chairs before we've actually finished finding dining room chairs of an ac-approved comfort level. so i figured i'd throw them out there to you guys and see if they fit a space in your home. and while you're at it, check out the gorgeous bell lamps ($575 for the pait). so, so lovely.
