Hi all, any suggestions on both a coffee table and dining chairs? We were thinking black Bentwood Thonets and a marble coffee table or a glass coffee table. Any help would be super
I too would suggest carefully choosing a coffee table that complements the dining one.
Thonet chairs are beautiful classics but I wonder if they are too different from the table and the lounge style due to the curves.
With the timber floor being a different colour to the dining table I would look again at dining chair & coffee table options.
My suggestion is a dining chair like this http://www.freedom.com.au/furniture/dining/dining-chairs/23455078/larsson-dining-chair-arena-cement/ or something not too dark. Maybe a dusty blue?
Make the coffee table a similar colour the dining table - even if it is wooden with a glass top?
Just some suggestions!

You have a lovely living and dining room and I love the dining table!
I agree with vee_2596 that the coffee table should be in a similar wood to the dining table and I like the style of the first image that LouieT posted. If you could find a marble top coffee table with light wooden legs that would work perfectly.
As your dining table is in a light wood perhaps White Thonet chairs could work, this will complement the light wood tone and keep the room fresh.
Below are some other coffee table and dining chair options. Good Luck with finishing your living and dining room, I'm sure it is going to look beautiful.
It's hard to tell your style from one photo! Pick what you love, not what's popular & you'll enjoy for years! Have fun, I pictured green chairs!!! But that's what I love!
You tend to see those cross leg tables paired with cross backed chairs. Lots of varied versions of those. Some are not unlike the thonet with the slightly curved, rounded legs.
I must say though, I do like how these up holstered chairs create an arch form under the table.
I'd go for marble (or other) before glass coffee table. Glass ones can be a pain to keep clean
I love that table! Can I ask where you got it?
Hi Luke, the table is from the "Banyan Tree" store in Camberwell, Victoria. 2m x 91cm $1,800. They also have a 2.5m option.
