Mix-Matched Dining Room Chairs

I hosted a large dinner party last year and ran out of matching chairs, so I added some other random chairs from around the house. Low and behold I loved the look and kept the mix-matched chairs around my dining table. Dining rooms can come across stuffy and too put together. This look creates a fun, out of the box dining space.

If you want this look but still need a uniform feel, choose chairs that are of the same era or trend. If you have a thing for mid-century, choose only chairs from that era. If you love a more vintage or rustic look, choose worn woods and metals. Even in the collaboration there will be cohesiveness.

In this image, we see a mix of chairs that are all in wood. The different tones look fantastic against a white table.

Another idea is to keep all of the chairs the same except for the two end chairs. Choose something totally different and unique from the rest of the chairs for stand out look.

Sheepskins are the perfect accessory to add warmth in the winter months. It’s also a great option for keeping mix-matched chairs cohesive. Just drape them on the seat or on the back of the chairs. Have fun with your chair options and always think outside of the box.

How do you feel about mix-matched dining room chairs?
