Dining Chairs at ChiLantro

White metal chairs are from West Elm. Blue powder coated custom tables are industrial, but not cold. Kim Lewis Designs wanted to keep the color casual and simple, but inviting. The green painted base on the bench wraps around to the other banquette and the counter, so the eye has a clear path of color to follow -- all on the same plane.
