One would think the process of buying all new furniture would prove to be easy. Or maybe you’ve done this before and you know better. But there will always be a struggle between price point and what you need/want. Over the weekend we went to a small village near Utrecht to view and purchase a table. We wanted a large table to seat 8-10 people. Tables this size are expensive and even Ikea quoted prices at 800 Euros. So we decided to go for a more rustic look. There seems to be a trend in The Netherlands to have a ‘farm’ table made from leftover pieces of scaffolding wood. We were able to customise the width and length for a quarter of the price.
And now I’m struggling with what chairs to purchase. I have conducted an informal poll between male and female. All the females have suggested mismatched chairs, different shapes, altering colors, you know cool and rustic like. Every male wants a high backed comfortable chair. With arm rests.
I found these cafe chairs and now I’m struggling with what to do. I know I want at least 4 plain metal chairs (not pictured). I can’t decide if I should add in a color or mix in other chairs. These are real problems.
