Every room’s personality is a sum of all its parts. It’s not simply or solely about the paint color, the tablescapes, the furniture or the accents. When homeowners conjure up the concept for their dining room, the chairs are often the last thing that is considered. Often is the case that the chairs are just bought as a set with the table, as homeowners have the notion that this is the only way to have a cohesive room. This is not the case. In fact, mix-and-matching your chairs with your table can create a unique ambiance for your room that showcases your personality.
You can mix and match based on color. Pick a hue from your room or table to bring into your chairs to add vibrancy. You can also mix and match textures or materials for a different way to stimulate guest’s senses. One tried-and-true combination is wood and metal. The industrialness of the metal along with the rustic feel of wood can be either sleek and sophisticated or down-to-earth and homey.
Design of the chair itself is equally important. Chairs, like most other things, come in a variety of shapes and sizes. There are those with the traditional shape. Others mimic this but give a sense of regality with cathedral-like posts. Some are for the more aesthetically adventurous, coming in rounded shapes and varying sizes. It’s all up to how you want the room to feel. You can also find chairs with designs cut into them. This is a great option for those that want some traditional aspects with a little flair.
