I think with those conference chairs, you aren’t going to be able to exaclty replicate the look you are going for.  You could get a black or other dark color for the chair sashes.  I don’t love the white ones either, but unless you get totally different (looks like wood in your inspiration pic) looking chairs, I think the sashes are your better option.  Those hotel function chairs are SO ugly!  I think they have those just so they can add $$ to the price with the chair sashes.  We are having our wedding in an old Inn and the dining room has these old fashioned wooden chairs, and hardwood floor and beams, which was a big selling point for me!

@MsTargaryen:  I think they make them as ugly as possible!  Could you get darker tableclothes or something else to break up the all-white?

I dislike chair covers! With a passion! I think they are so stuffy and cluttered looking, no matter how big the space is. I’ve yet to go to any function where I liked the look of chair covers. And I hate sitting in chairs with covers.

Skip them! The chairs are nice enough withtout them (and as a guest, I honestly wouldn’t care!)! We’re totally not have chair covers, either. Even skip the sashes. Make your look work via the tablecloths.

I think you made the right decision in skipping the chair covers. Your inspiration has much cleaner lines than a sea of white chair covers would provide.

I think the chairs at your venue will work well.  When they are against a dark tablecloth they will not be nearly as obvious as they are against white cloths.

You can use chair sashes without the covers if you want and if you think it will provide the look you want. There are many different ways of tying sashes.

I still can’t upload pics, so here are some links:

I don’t like chair covers + sash but the chairs are ugly

Chair question?

You could tie this rosette sash vertically:
