HELP- chairs in black or white?

I picked up these chairs today:

and I'm about halfway through sanding them
[I WISH I had some lil minions for that and priming things!].

I had planned to paint and reupholster them to go with this china cabinet, making it a set:

They would get painted off white/cream and get red/cream toile seats [I have all the materials for that].

But then I started thinking, I do have that other China Cabinet, and I could do the chairs in black with drop cloth seats to go with it:

Yes I still have that one, I can not sell anything to save my life!!!

So, what to do, what to do?
Paint the chairs to match the [smaller] white w/red toile China Cabinet?
Paint the chairs to match the [larger] black/cream China Cabinet?

What sells quicker typically? Black painted or White painted?

I saw some beautiful chairs today at a barn/craft sale. White with a mint crushed velvet.

I think the red would be cute, but wonder if red might be a little too much for some people. A bit valentine's day?

Just food for thought. Love your blog.
