Dining Room / April 11, 2018 / Bristol Royal.
This is a good question! So many people will select four or more chairs that are all completely identical, but is that really necessary? Can you mix and match chairs and benches, for example? Or how about an eclectic mix of chairs? Well, you can select whatever you like! There really aren't any rules, so why not stick to one material and be a little more relaxed with the styles of seats you choose?
This dining room is adaptable, as the table extends! A great way to make something of a small space, we love the addition of a casual seating spot too. Can be difficult, especially when you want each area to have personality, but this project has managed with ease! This dining corner is so striking, with a huge statement table, dramatic black chairs and a vibrant rug.
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.
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.
