Love It or Hate It? One Mismatching Chair

I recently wrote about mismatched dining chairs, with a photo of a table furnished with all mismatching chairs. Several of you did not approve of the look, but I loved it. I just came across this photo from the portfolio of prop stylist Lili Diallo, and noticed a slight variation of the technique. The bentwood chairs are actually all the same, but one of them was painted red. In the beautifully styled photo, it works, but I think if the chair were moved to the near side of the table, it would just look off. On the other hand, having two red chairs at the heads of the table would definitely work for me. What do you think?
