Finally, how stringent are you about having a perfectly matching set of chairs? Maybe it would work a little better to give the kids a bench seat to enjoy, while you and the other adults all have proper chairs? Or maybe you all want a personalised vintage chair that you've painted yourself? Either way, get out of the mindset that each chair has to be exactly the same.
We will always have a soft spot for rustic farmhouse style wooden dining tables, as they just scream of family cohesion and cozy living. With a fresh oiling, they really come to life and you can afford to go a little crazier with your seating choices.
If your kitchen or home enjoys a country style decor scheme, you might consider bringing in a dining table and chairs which flaunt a rich rustic patina as shown here. This design will blend very well with earthy interiors that make use of wood, stone or exposed bricks, and fill your dining area with warm homeliness. Adorn the setting with an unusual chandelier, earthen vases or a ladder, and mix and match your chairs with a bench for a more rustic look and feel.
If you’re in the market for a new dining set, resist the urge to grab the matching server and china cabinet. Instead, take a trip around the store and look for pieces that may highlight or even contrast your table and chairs. Two-toned pieces and painted finishes make it easy to create a great-looking combination.
