The case of the missing dining room chairs

Back in January we pulled the trigger on these super fabulous dining room chairs from JCPenney. But you might remember that there was a delivery snafu, and instead of bringing us the 4 navy chairs we ordered, we were delivered 3 navy and one beige chair. Womp womp.  So after promising us a new navy chair to be delivered in March, with no delivery ever to appear, I finally got back on the phone with JCP to see what the deal was.


In the end, turns out they completely discontinued the dining chairs and never bothered to let me know. There is not a single navy chair to be found anywhere in any store, any warehouse. To JCP’s credit, they really did work hard to try to track one down for me after a few twitter conversations and phone calls. But now we are stuck with 3 navy chairs, which is super awkward.  I’m continuing to haunt their website in the hopes that one will pop up (a tan one already has – wait, maybe that’s the one they’re coming to pick up tomorrow??).

So now I’m trying to decide what to do. I figure my options are these:

1. Attempt to sale stalk the JCP website with the hopes that one will turn up.

2. Return all of the chairs and start over from scratch.

3. Keep 2 chairs to use as accents for the head of the table.

Right now I’ve got the 6 Eames plastic knockoff chairs in there that we’ll be taking to the lake house, and I admit, I really do like the look of it (you might remember that was my original plan.)


But I’m still not 100% sure I like them with the 2 JA chairs from JCP.


What would you do? I’d love to hear a second/third/fourth/eighteenth opinion. And let’s not talk about how I still haven’t done anything about that wretched wallpaper. UGH.
