table renovations and swivel chair options

well, we have inherited a gigantic old table for the bargain price of free. it was donated to eli's work but they don't have room for it, so it is becoming our new art table.
it is a neat old table - the bottom has flaking remnants of labels indicating it was a duke university library table in it's previous life. at some point, though, the beautiful butcher block top was "updated" with an unfortunate brown linoleum glued to the top. 
so we took the entire top off (this was harder than i make it sound) and replaced with a piece of laminate from home depot for now, while eli tries to refurbish the original top out in his garage palace. 
since it was a library table, it is a bit taller than a regular table or desk, so we will need some height-adjustable chairs... i am eying these pocketbook-friendly options ($22 and $34) at ikea:
SNILLE Swivel chair blue Width: 26 3/8 " Depth: 26 3/8 " Max. height: 32 5/8 " Seat width: 18 1/8 " Seat depth: 15 3/8 " Min. seat height: 15 3/8 " Max. seat height: 20 1/8 "  Width: 67 cm Depth: 67 cm Max. height: 83 cm Seat width: 46 cm Seat depth: 39 cm Min. seat height: 39 cm Max. seat height: 51 cm
JULES Swivel chair silver color Width: 22 " Depth: 22 " Seat width: 17 3/8 " Seat depth: 16 1/2 " Min. seat height: 16 1/8 " Max. seat height: 20 7/8 "  Width: 56 cm Depth: 56 cm Seat width: 44 cm Seat depth: 42 cm Min. seat height: 41 cm Max. seat height: 53 cm
did i just use the word "pocketbook"? who am i?
