Regarding the Eames LCW - I have the black DCMs for my dining chairs and although I love the look and the chairs themselves in hindsight I really wish I had opted for a standard stain version. The paint has worn away on the front edges from being pushed into one another while being put back under the table and I also have some pretty visible marks from people sitting down while wearing belts with metal on them and scratching parts to the point of bare wood showing through. One big thing that sucks about this is how bad people have felt for scratching them, and it's not their fault, they are dining room chairs and they shouldn't have to go through a vigorous pat down before being allowed to sit down in the first place. I realize that even with the regular stain I would have some marks, I just think it would be way less noticeable.

It's a knock off of the Le Klint Pendant 172. Still a really cool light. I have one of the originals in my entry way. Not sure if this is any different than the original but the way the light attaches to the cord seems very fragile and worries me whenever I have to change the bulb.

I agree with the round part however I have a 60" round Eames table with a walnut top that looks awesome with the black chairs. I think at the 60" size you can no longer get the wood veneer around the edges so mine has black vinyl trim around the edges that actually helps tie it all together. With the 60" i can fit 6 chairs comfortably (pushed in/put away) but can squeeze in another two for larger dinners when pulled out.
