While the trend of mixing and matching chairs might seem easy, using mismatched chairs is not quite as simple as it sounds. You just can’t go and buy any chair design and expect to pull of the look, because not just any chair will work great. If you want properly to incorporate this trend in your dining room and create unique and fun look, then follow the following guidelines! Enjoy!

You can find odd chairs at thrift stores, flea markets and garage sales. Take a look at your garage, you may already have some old chair that can be painted in some bright color and incorporated in your dining area. Mix different chair styles, such as Scandinavian design benches, stools or armchairs, industrial, foldable or vintage chairs.

  • Find or Create One Thing in Common

Pick chairs that have at least one thing in common, whether it is color, wood tone, shape, etc., so that you create an eclectic look without feeling chaotic. If you have different chairs, you can paint them the same shade.

  • Keep Scale in Mind

Make sure the mismatched chairs you have chosen for your room all have a similar scale.

  • Go Big with Head Chairs

The exception to the scale rule applies to head chairs, which can be the same size or even bigger than the side chairs.

  • Benches

If you go with a bench on one side, then consider using one type of chairs on the other so that there is a bit of uniformity from one side to the other.

  • Mismatched Upholstery

Another way to use chairs in the same style but upholstered in different fabrics.

  • Use Opposites

For more stunning look, try pairing opposites, whether it is light and heavy or vintage and modern.

  • Use a Consistent Seat Height

Ensure the chairs and benches you use in your space are the same heights.
