Since the table was an impulse purchase (but a great one) at the Crate & Barrel outlet, it didn't come with any. I didn't think tracking some down would be a big deal--there are SO many kinds of dining chairs out there--but we're totally stumped. It's like watching me do a math problem over here.

Although, something dark would look good in that room, too.
I'm torn! I'm betting it will eventually come down to our budget, since all of these would be cool in their own way. What are your thoughts? Any tips on things to avoid? Do you have a favorite from these? What's your dining room like?
