I'm enjoying the comments here and agree with many. One can't help but cry for a little color when looking at drab page after drab page. That said, we've purchased a few pieces - namely the Ovieto chaise (awesome) and a "swallow you whole" leather armchair that I look forward to having as my primary reading spot for the next 20 years. The dining table we ordered in OCTOBER should arrive any day. Better be worth the wait. I think the lesson here is that yes, the pomposity of their claims and the borderline garishness of the overall style can't be denied, but even amongst all that there are a few genuinely nice pieces. When they get it right, they really do. Otherwise there's a lot of "what were they thinking?"
Florid Language: Restoration Hardware's New Catalog

I second (or third?) the Tolix chairs. We did the exact same thing for our dining room - a reclaimed wood dining table with the plain metal chairs. Looks great and it's a nice contrast. The chairs are surprisingly comfortable too (way more so than the ikea chairs we replaced). They're not exactly cheap, but they'll last a lifetime. We got ours from the sundance catalog and they offer a discount when purchased in quantity.
