Mix and match dining

Hi everyone,

This is my first post. Decorating is pretty much an obsession for me. I'm actually channelling it into a career starting this spring. (Starting a home staging and redesign business with a friend).

Just sold my mid-century modern teak dining table and chairs and I want to replace them with a warm wood table and white modern chairs. I like the Eames Eiffel chairs but the more affordable option is this type of chair...


I'm thinking of getting the round Bjursta table at IKEA.


2 questions:

1) Does anyone have any experience with the Bjursta series? We have a 7 mo old baby. Is it a wipe-friendly surface?

2) Does anyone know where I could find these butterfly chairs?

If I can't find them in Toronto, I may get the Gilbert chairs at IKEA, although I've heard they're often not in stock.

Thanks everyone. Looking forward to your feedback.
