We were recently given an awesome birch table that looks like this, only the finish is not shiny:
The problem is, we don't have any chairs! The finish is really hard to match. I'm at a loss for what kind of chairs to buy!
Since we can't match the wood, what kind of chairs should we be looking at? I was thinking white or bronze metal leaf bistro chairs, but can't find any without a bistro table included. And I'm afraid using garden chairs might look weird.
We are renters with a new baby and are therefore on a very tight budget (don't want to spend $100's that we don't have on a set that might not match our next place). Our house is an old Colonial duplex with low-key painted cabinets and woodwork, and linoleum floors, so there is no other wood to match, except maybe the off-white beams and moldings.
Our table and kitchen are small. Thanks!
