Tulip Tables with Traditional Chairs.
I’ve decided that we need a tulip table for the Dining Room. Need it. I’d love to have the real thing but I will settle for an imitation at this point. I’ve wanted one forever and the 48″ round will fit perfectly. I plan on pairing it with 4 antique wooden chairs that we inherited from David’s great uncle.
I plan on reupholstering the seats (which are currently the original needlepoint) with a simple neutral like many of the chairs shown in the photos above. Keep it simple. And although I’d love to paint the chairs, I don’t have it in me to do that to David’s family heirlooms. So wooden they will stay. I do like the contrast though. The light and dark finishes plus the modern and traditional mix. I think it’s a interesting, eclectic blend. What do you think? Would you use the table with more contemporary chairs?
