Mix and Match Dining Room Tables and Chairs

I have learned from doing interior design for other people that picking out new furniture can be really daunting with all of the options out there. People are afraid to make a mistake when they are spending the money on new furniture. This is understandable because often you will have your furniture longer than you will have your car so you want to invest in something you love!

A friend of mine was recently shopping for new dining chairs. She was looking for the two end chairs to be slightly different from the side chairs, which is a look I love. I am never a fan of matched sets of anything. To give you a better idea of what I mean, here are some beautiful examples of mix and match dining room tables and chairs.


This first photo is a classic example and shows matching side chairs with more prominent end chairs. Often the end chairs will have arm rests.

In this example, even though the chairs are all different they are similar in style, size and color. This is farmhouse at its best!

This look gets me every time and is one of my favorites. Use four matching  chairs with a bench along one side.

Even your round tables don’t require a matched set of chairs. I love the rustic wood seats mixed with the slipcovered chairs. This makes for a casual, comfortable look.

  1. We have a round table with 6 chairs. Would you do 4 and 2 or 3 and 3 of two different styles? Thank you.
