I think if you changed the inner workings, rather than the outside, it would look really neat. So change to a simple bulb in the middle, or a cluster of bulbs, maybe. Then I would change the length of the chain as well. Make the light hang a little lower and that might make it a little bit more contemporary.

I think it's just way too busy. I honestly feel so overwhelmed just looking at it, and I probably wouldn't find it a very conducive space to try and do any work in: I would just keep getting distracted.

It's a nice looking table and everything, but I don't really see any innovation here. It looks like just another table with a hunk of wood on top. And sure they used reclaimed wood, but it could've been any wood in the world as far as what was done with it.

Even though I understand it's just a knock-off, to me you just can't improve upon the original Eames design. If I were to change the vinyl over to another fabric, I'd try to go with the same rich browns and earthy tones that C & R chose.
Before & After: An Eames Lounge Knockoff, Transformed

I have one of the chairs similar to the burnt orange, except that mine is on the coral side of red fabric. I need to get the foam inside refilled though, because it's from the 50s and it's all dried up and spilling out. Does anyone know where I might be able to get that done? I live in Edmonton, Alberta.
