Tre chic... and I owe it all to Cori

Thanks to my friend Cori, I now am the new proud owner of these lovely and crazy chairs by Thomasville, circa 1965. I'm soooo in love!

I'm really undecided on how to proceed. They need some work because 3 of them are blue in tint and two of them are yellowish - like somebody tried to get creative at one point. Both work, but I want all 5 to match. Also, they should be reupholstered.

In an ideal 2009 world, what would these look like? I'm thinking a creamy white with gold gilded accents, refreshed but in keeping with their original aesthetic--but I've also heard opinions of bold and black. Thoughts?

oh my!! how GORgeous!! I'm not sure which way I'd go... first instinct is to go with the cream and gold. But they could be gorgeous in black. I just don't know... Can't wait to see what you do with them, though!
