Take these chairs for instance. Stunning as they are, they're no amazing design feat and they're not going to challenge you in the way some furniture can. But I adore them.
They're by Bryce & Kerry Moore for Context Furniture and I love their use of different shades of wood and their thoroughly modern seats and backs complimented by the turned wood legs.
Wouldn't they work beautifully with a chunky, battered old table for the perfect dining room set?
