I recently got an email from Holly Hughes, the community manager at Chairish, a great online marketplace devoted to vintage furnishings and accessories. She invited bloggers to write about their take on the mix ‘n’ match dining chairs design trend use items from the Chairish site and elsewhere. This challenge gave me the opportunity to give my spin on this fantastic trend.
Crystorama alabaster chandelier, 1,280 CAD / Multi colored rug, 480 CAD / UGG Australia sheep skin rug, 1,145 CAD / Anthropologie bent wood chair, 255 CAD / Tom Dixon pink accent chair, 7,435 CAD / Zuo cream dining chair, 330 CAD / Flash Furniture industrial chair, 66 CAD
I tend to be drawn toward a more eclectic look (this is what I call it, but really it's slight confusion from liking everything and not knowing what to choose). So, I decided to start with this dining table from Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic couture. This was the real inspiration for whole room.
Next, I always like a comfy chair when I'm sitting at the table, so I added this Tom DixonPink Wingback Chair for both ends of the table. As I was perusing the dining chairs collection on the Chairish website, I got some great inspiration for the look I was going for. Then I spotted this Scrolled Bentwood Dining Chair from Anthropologie. As far as I'm concerned, if it's mix 'n' match, there are no rules. I just put things together and if I like them, good enough! However, I did decide to keep it simple with the colors and focus on including various design styles. the final chair I added was the metal industrial stackable side chair. I included this chair in gold and white to give it a little more of a luxe look.
To tie everything together, I added a few accents, including layering a sheep skin rug and boho vintage rug from Chairish. Then I topped it off with this chandelier.
