So I'm trying out different chairs. I brought in my Paul McCobb mid-century chair from the kitchen (formerly our dining room set and now the most valuable "antique" in the house--a set of 4 worth about $2,500) and it seemed just fine. Now I'm using Grandmother Susan's dining room chair she brought from Pennsylvania to Illinois in 1855 after her marriage, and which my mother restored around 1965. Next I plan to try one of the dining room chairs which I think is a mid-80s design, but a little higher than the rest.
