Love It or Hate It? Modern Chairs With a Traditional Dining Table

In this dining room, classic modern Vitra Panton Chairs ($262) are paired with a traditional dining table with turned wood legs. I think this little touch of modernity is refreshing, especially for a place which, judging from the wainscoting, isn't a contemporary home. Do you like this mix-and-match effect?

Strangely enough, this particular combination works well for me.

I'm not crazy about this combination but I do like mixing modern and traditional furniture.

the chairs are wrong - they should be modern, yes, but more in keeping with the rest of the design. say a louis ghost chair?

I think you can mix old with new, but the chairs are just a little modern in this example.

I could like it - but i think it would be better if the table was just traditional shape, but was painted a shiny black or something.

I like it but I also have a classic dining table with more modern chairs.

I guess it could work but I don't like it in the above picture.
