    I waited for a year before getting the fabulous clear Philippe Starck chairs. Never looked back!
    Love the combinationation of rustic farm table and modern clean-lined chairs, good luck with accomplishing the look!

    I got my farm house table! looks a lot like the second pic. A huge find at a local antique store. The price could not have been better… eek!

    Now to find the money for the pantone chairs :)

    I'm loving the mix of modern chairs with the farmhouse table. I've got a farmhouse table that's new to look old that I bought from a local furniture builder. I have it paired with Louis chairs. :)

    We got ours at an unfinished furniture store. Pretty inexpensive. Good heavy hardwood. Love the combo of modern and farmhouse. Love it, Love it.

    Great blog!

    We totally have the same taste! I love this image too much. I am looking for farm table too – I am in Australia though so can't help with sources in your neck of the woods, but good luck in your search!
