When it comes to decorating a dining room, the table and chairs are, of course, the most important pieces in the space. It’s common to shop for a matching table and chairs set and there are lots of great options out there. However, this isn’t the only way to go. Besides just picking the table and chairs separately, why not pick the chairs separately from each other, too?
Mismatched dining room chairs may sound a little strange at first, but the results can be really inspired. Whether it’s just mixing up the two end chairs or not having a single one match another, this simple switch-up can bring a lot of character to the space. While it’s not appropriate for home staging if your home is going on the market, it is a great way to express your individual style and do something truly unique in your own residence.
This look doesn’t have to be restricted to just the quirkier decorating styles such as country chic. Mismatched dining room chairs can actually look great with any style, from sleek and modern to outright glamorous.
Check out these 10 inspiring spaces with mismatched dining room chairs.
