Dining area

I haven't told you yet, but my boyfriend and bought an apartment in Stockholm, which we are moving into in June next year. I'm really looking forward to it, but I feel a bit sad leaving the beautiful southern part of Sweden. Anyway, I've started looking at some new furniture, and of course I dream of beautiful design furniture. But I think it's possible to get the same feeling with less expensive furniture as well. These are my inspiration photos for our dining area, and although I wish I could afford Wegner's wishbone chair, I think these chairs from Ilva have a similar feel, without feeling like a copy. The chairs to the right reminds a bit of the popular Eames chairs, which I also long for, but with a more humane price. However, I’m not sure if I find these a bit too close to the original design, for me to feel excited. What do you think?
