Decor advice
 
So...I need some opinions on a dining room table/chairs.

We are moving into our new house in 6 weeks and just purchased some lighting. We also need to purchase a dining room table.

This is very similar to the chandelier we are placing in the dining room:

We are planning on buying a square dining table for the room, but I am unsure now what colour it should be. (It is more of a custom table, so there are many options for staining) I was thinking a very dark (black?) table with maybe creamy leather chairs. Do you think a black table, black chairs and a black chandelier is too much??

Our hardwood is oak with a dark walnut stain (not super dark-more chocolate looking), and the walls are neutral (creamy beige).

Open to suggestions! Thanks! :) (I realize we are doing this backward...it's probably much easier to match a chandelier to a table)

Considering the clear glass in the chandelier and all the other very dark items you mentioned... especially if you opt for the black chairs, wouldn't a solid glass table look smashing?
I love those that have the bevel on the underside.... very chic.
But just my taste of course :)

If you're thinking all black, I'd think that's too dark.
Square table with glass centre, cream coloured leather Parson chairs and that chandelier would be nice :)

Thank you for your suggestions. I thought all black would be too much too, which is why I was thinking cream chairs. I think a glass table would look amazing, but we had a small glass table in our condo which seats 4. We are going to put it in the kitchen in the new house, so I wouldn't want 2 glass tables.

Hi Cosmogrrl,

I really like that table, the fact that those 2 little seaters give it all different look. Where can you get that?

I would print the picture and take it to Blueprint Home in Westboro. Ask for Linda :)
