Last summer I upcycled a small table that my aunt had in storage. The table has two leaves that fold out so that it can comfortable seat 4 but can also be used as a buffet table when the leaves are down. Here’s a photo for reference:

When I moved a month ago I had big plans for using this table (leaves out) as a little dining table in our new apartment. I spent a lot of time thinking about what chairs should accompany it and I was really excited for the opportunity to execute one of my favorite styles – pairing vintage and modern pieces. In the end, the table didn’t quite fit in the space the way I had hoped so this dream will have to be shelved for our next move. In the process of trying to decide on the right set of dining chairs I collected a bunch of images for inspiration that I thought I’d share anyway. Scroll down to see some of my favorite examples of modern chairs paired with vintage-style tables from around the web.
