That EXACT same Black military campaign desk was my homework desk growing up...had it until I was in my 20's...It was an expensive piece in the mid/late 60'S, and Have always Loved it...wish I could find another...

I would play up the black countertops by doing a black woven window blind, or roman blind...I liked the previous suggestion of a broad black/white horizontal stripe on the window. Then apply black and white glass tile as a backsplash. Paint the walls semi gloss dove grey (black would be amazing, but your landlord would prob have a stroke), and accessories in bright yellow or any citrus color on the counter tops. A great color scheme for a small space and adds tons of drama, for not much money.

From my standpoint as a Designer (and we all have different opinions), first of all, modify the chair frames a bit...knock or cut off the dated knobs on the top of the chair, and have the upholsterer lessen the amount of button tufting by about 50% for a less fussy look. Then the chairs will be a better visual fit with the clean lines of the sofa. You can use the chairs as accent chairs, but maybe not immediately next to the sofa, as it looks as though the scale will be significantly different. Perhaps both chairs at one end of the room together with a small chic table between them.
