The combination of layered textures, soft neutral tones, and pops of blues lets the coastal vibe shine through. Rattan chairs paired with the rustic farmhouse table add just the right amount of texture and interest. I love the simplicity of the crisp white cushions on these chairs from Pottery Barn. Of course, we had to bring in a touch of blue with a classic navy and white striped rug that’s perfectly fitting for a coastal style.
Metal and wood furniture blend so effortlessly together, which makes this pairing a no brainier. The warmth of the reclaimed wood and industrial feel of the metal chairs provide the sophisticated mix of texture and character. To top off the industrial style we added a simple metal and glass chandelier featuring a vintage Edison bulb.
Mid-century modern meets farmhouse with these charcoal leather chairs. The clean lines and metal legs are a classic mid-century look. The wood table adds a warm contrast to the dark leather chairs and the light rug brightens the space. Black and white geometric accents play nicely with the Mid-Century style and help modernize the look.
Transitional design is all about mixing and matching traditional pieces with more modern styles. We’ve paired these fresh white chairs with a farmhouse table to add a transitional feel to this traditional style table. The warm wood on the table contrasts with the light and airy chairs adding depth to the space. Anchoring the design is a vintage inspired rug in a fun and chic pink tone.
Pairing two different traditional pieces together works well because the style is cohesive. These upholstered chairs have a tailored look with an antique wood frame to compliment the wood dining table. Adding a touch of comfort and softness is the natural linen seat and back. Rugs with boarders feature two defined areas acting as a picture frame making it the perfect choice for a dining room.
As you can see, there are lots of ways to mix and match your dining room table and chairs.
Whatever your style is, don’t fall victim to the matchy-matchy sales strategy of a furniture showroom. They fuel the misconception that everything needs to match. But, when all your furniture matches you end up with a look that tends to lack interest, depth, and personality. How boring.
Your home and all the things in it should be a reflection of your personality. After all, it is your home. So go ahead and mix and match your pieces together, you’ll create a dynamic look with a designer’s touch.
