D and I went to Copenhagen WAY back in February, and besides being the home of Legos [which we got a bit too excited about]...
... it is also boast the birthplace of the Panton Chair, one of my all-time favorites.
My photography skills are legendary, I know. Poor Dan was dragged to the design museum [http://www.ddc.dk/ in case you were interested] on his birthday trip. I could see him losing the will with every step he took.
Anyway, this got me thinking about our non-dining room, how much I want a Panton chair, and how to blend it with more traditional items to get my favorite eclectic look. Then voila!
I like the modern with traditional thing they've got going on. The monochrome color scheme helps mix the styles as well. When I showed it to Dan, he said nothing matches, but it wasn't awful, so that's a start. I should get too precious about it, he did just pull out the remastered Beatles albums he got me for my birthday because he was tired of the talking on the radio... he's falling right into my trap.... mwah-ha-ha!
