What style are you going for?  My original instinct was #2 because I love the wooden look and think they’d look great even without dressing the up!  But, #3 could go great if you wanted to tie ribbons or a sash on the chairs!

I’d go with the simplest, cleanest looking one. I can’t tell what #1 looks like, but out of 2&3, I like 3. 2 looks like chairs at shoneys.

I think the wooden chairs have a more modern style. I generally avoid chair covers like the plague, as all you see is a sea of white- totally detracting from the other decor.

As brown is one of your colors, I would be happy using them as is.

You could look at alternative ways to  tie the chair sash

you could do a ribbon sash- for the sqaure back chairs- do just one or two sets of ribbon

if your are a sewer you could make little slipcovers just for the chairbacks

I like the second ones the best. Especially if your colors include brown, I think it works great.

#3 type are not comfortable on the back…..I would stay with #1 or #2.

based on your description, i think i would go with #1 given the color scheme, contemporary feel goal, and guest comfort.
