The first table! Similar legs as the turquoise table.

Legs are too straight on second table to work with your chairs.

But how will that black table blend in with the rest of the room? Won't it be jarring? After going to all that trouble to pick fabric for the chairs, how will the fabric "co-exist" a black table? Are there bits of black in the fabric? If not, what will anchor the chairs to the table?

I am ready for new fabric on the chairs. Whatever fabric I do next will definitely have black in it. Either a floral with a black background or a animal print.

I just found a piece of leftover fabric of the fabric currently on the chairs and it didn't not hold up very well for outdoor fabric. It looks very worn and faded. I was sorta surprised.

I like the 1st table with your chairs.

There are some really pretty black paisley fabrics with a touch of aqua. I hope you are keeping the aqua table!?

I'm leaning to the first table too. I will have to take out my turquoise table in order to be able to center the table with the window & hanging light.

My neighbor who has the same layout as me doesn't have her table or light centered with the window and you don't noticed it...Maybe I shouldn't worry so much about trying to center the table with the window...

Would it be weird not to have an overhead light in the dining room? If I keep the turquoise table in the DR I wont be able to center the table with the window or hanging light...

What do you think of using tall buffet lamps in the DR instead of the hanging fixture??

This older picture shows the vaulted ceiling in DR area.

Or would I center the light over a table even though it wouldn't be centered with the window?

Center it over the table. I have never had one centered to the room or windows. Perhaps if it was formal you would need to center everything but I do not think it is necessary here.
