SHOP: Vintage Market Dining
There are many creative ways to bring style to a space but, when it comes to the dining room, it’s all about the mix for many. They like the way it sets their room apart and adds that extra something special.
Furniture manufacturers are jumping aboard this trend as well, making it easier than ever to create your own unique look.
We’ve rounded up seven of our favorite dining mix and match looks:
1. Use a bench.
This is probably the easiest way to mix and match and, in some cases, having a bench may be more functional for you.
Use four upholstered chairs, or two upholstered host chairs with two benches.
2. Add a fun pop of color.
We like mixing warm woods, or any wood for that matter, with a fun pop of color.
For a different take, skip the bench and use two more matching wood chairs, or colorful chairs, in it’s place. )
3. Mix painted and stained finishes.
As with many looks, the manufacturer has done the mixing for us here, but you could mimic this look with dining furniture of your choice.
Also, a table doesn’t necessarily need to combine the two finishes – a solid stained table can be mixed with painted chairs or vice versa.
4. Slipcovers + mix and match chair styles.
Slipcovered chairs are great for adding softness to a wood set and, for a bit of whimsy, we’ve mixed the side chair styles.
Mixing the finishes as well as the styles would make for an even more eclectic look.
5. Patterned chair + matched set.
Just like the teal leather and slipcovered chairs in our previous examples, using an upholstered patterned chair adds another level of interest and softens the look.
The patterned fabric you choose, neutral and understated or bold and colorful, will help set the tone for your space.
6. Add a unique texture to a matched set.
Fabric isn’t the only option for breaking up a matched wood set. We chose this woven hyacinth chair for it’s interesting textural appeal.
7. Matched chair styles but different colors.
Combine four (or more) chairs, each in a different color, for a look that’s both striking and unconventional. (Lovers of the unpredictable may want to mix chair styles as well as colors.)
All of these ideas can be combined in various ways to create your own special mix in the dining room. Which is your favorite?
