But, we must admit, we love it best at a dining room table. This dining room is such a fabulous juxtaposition of all the things we love. A chandelier for glamour, a farm table for that rustic feel and, of course, Tolix chairs for that industrial chic touch. This room is like that perfect first date outfit: It's fabulous but doesn't look like you're trying too hard.
When we think of Tolix chairs, it's usually a silver tone that springs to mind, but who couldn't use a little more color? Green is the most restful color, and, after a long day, we can't think of much nicer than a delicious meal and a glass of wine around a restful table.
Ahhhh...There's that silver we love so much. Combined with the industrial pendants, lacquer table and snazzy storage, this is such a great room. And magazines in the dining room? Why didn't we think of that!

Dining al fresco has never looked better. And we're glad to know that Tolix chairs were originally designed for outdoor use. Stylish and durable is a perfect combination. I bet strawberry smoothie/mashed green peas/soggy Puffs/half-chewed banana would just wipe right off of these!

Oh my goodness! We can't decide which looks more delicious, the setting or the spread. The modern, sleekness of the Tolix chair is, to us, the ideal pairing for a farm table -- sort of like the wine to that cheese... Grown-up trick or treating!

Who says a set of dining chairs has to match? Can you imagine a more idyllic spot for eating, resting or general merry making? If this was our backyard, we wouldn't miss a meal out here! It really must be noted that a fabulous dining room makes everything taste better!
We were very lucky here in our little part of the East Coast that Hurricane Sandy didn't give us too much trouble. Thinking of our friends in the aftermath of the storm. We hope that all is well with all of you and your families!
