Decisions, decisions..cane barrel chair

Answered
So I'm juggling projects but I can't help I fell in love with these. I got the set for $20 knowing that the caning was crackled (maybe I can just paint over it) and on the top where the spline was it was breaking (maybe I can repair it). So it sounded like I can just be really crafty and cut corners but that never works for long. I did the research on line about re caning but I don't know if I wanted to keep the integrity of it by replacing it OR leave it out completely and make it modern OR make a base and cushion it. What do you think? Any alternative ways?
If it helps my house is earthly neutral base browns/creams with silver.
