Mismatched Dining Chairs

Our guest post today is from Arcadian Lighting.

Hello, everyone! It's Mari from Arcadian Lighting, a wonderful place to find light fixtures and lighting ideas and trends on the Internet. Be sure to stop by and check out our great blog. I'm so excited to be here visiting at Kathy Hahn Designs. My guest post topic today is mismatched dining chairs. I love collecting chairs of all kinds. This slight obsession has led me to experiment with mixing (and seldom matching) an array of seating for the dining room.
Using several different chairs around the table means never having to choose just one style or color. For those who love to shop flea markets, garage sales and used furniture stores, it also means being able to snap up an irresistible find with a clear conscience, knowing it can happily fit in with other treasured chairs at the table. Here are eight spaces made unique by their lovely mismatched dining chairs. I hope you will be inspired to try your own variation on the very interesting mismatched chair theme. Please enjoy!
Mismatched Dining Chairs Mostly pastel hues can be found on dining chairs in this eclectic room. How many different designs can you spot? There's a French metal Tolix, an Eames molded plastic, an interesting wood folding chair and more.

Mismatched Dining Chairs Even traditional dining rooms lend themselves to mixing chairs. These mismatched seats are upholstered in several contrasting patterned fabrics├│all shown off beautifully underneath this lovely hanging light fixture, a fancy chandelier.
Mismatched Dining Room Chairs Atop a rich red vintage rug, this Danish modern table is surrounded by a colorful mix of Mid-Century chairs. The deep turquoise is my favorite. How about you?
Mismatched Dining Room Chairs A great eclectic collection of mismatched chairs seems perfect for this vintage space. I love the one black and white harlequin seat.

Mismatched Dining Room Chairs Color is what sets apart this set of traditional chairs, showing how a matched set can take on an appealing mismatched look when each chair is painted in a different color while seats are upholstered in a rainbow of varied hues. 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

  1. What are your thoughts on adding two matching upholstered chairs to the ends of a dining table that has 4 solid wood chairs on the sides?

    I am looking to add a polished chic update to our dining table, but do not want to throw the entire room out of sorts!

    1. Yes, I think this is a great idea. I have done this with a client before and it looked very chic. I found a link you might enjoy on this subject: Just copy and paste into your address bar. Have fun!!
