Mixing and matching can be a little tricky but there are some rules of thumb to help you design your modern dining room. The Dutch Furniture features a modern Collection of dining tables, chairs, benches and decors to rival the aesthetics of your favorite trendy restaurant.
3 Ways to Mix And Match Your Dining Seating
1. Keep One Quality Consistent And Make A Few Creative Tweaks. If you choose to keep consistent with the shape of your dining chairs, you can definitely get away with altering the colors (or vice versa!). These Velvet Dining Chairs by Dutchbone come in different colors that you can alternate and pair it with this simple Rectangular Dining Table by Woood or this Black Mango Wood Dining Table by Eleonora. The rich and colorful velvet dining chairs are beautifully balanced by the wooden table. This contrast in material creates visual highs and lows, avoiding textural overwhelm.
2. Alternate your Dining Chairs. Mixed-and-matched dining chair combinations create an interesting visual effect. Consider alternating this Velvet Dining Chairs by Zuiver and this Leather Dining Chairs by By-Boo, although their style is different, both chairs have the same material and curved-back element, pulling the space together. These dining chairs are perfectly paired with the Pilar Dining Table by Zuiver or Tenille Dining Table by OROA. This look also makes the space more dimensional and stylish!
3. Add A Bench To The Mix. Bench seating is ideal since it is comfortable, relaxing, and allows for greater flexibility in sitting arrangements when you have more guests than expected. Using a bench (or two!) instead of a few seats is an easy way to add variation without going crazy, whether built into the corner, banquette-style, or free-floating along one side of the table. Take a look at this Teak Dining Bench by BePureHome or this Walnut Dining Bench from the brand Dutchbone which are both filled with modern appeal.
