I first encountered and then babbled about this stunning dining room here (the rainbow of pastels = divine.) But on second look, I was struck at how perfect those egg-shaped, sleek modern chairs looked set against the heavy farm table.
Which leads me to my current design obsession: the farm table + eames chair pairing. Request: a second dining room, stat.
And, believe it or not, some of the sweetest eames chairs are available at Linens ‘n Things; check out the Space Living 1950′s Modern Shell Side Chair + the Space Living 1960′s Mid Century Rocking Chair. As for the sturdy farm table, I prefer to hunt down my perfect table at flea markets and garage sales, then coat the entire piece in a glossy white or even matte chalkboard black paint (you know, if I had room for all of this design dreaming.)
