Mix and Match Eclectic Dining Chairs

Are you keen to do something a bit different with you dining furniture but you don't know where to start? The traditional dining suites not really your style but you need something practical and serviceable for the family. Or maybe you are on a tight budget but still looking to create something special.

Mix and match dining chairs could be the perfect solution. With an array of different chair styles to choose from you can create the perfect atmosphere to suit your home and achieve this designer style all on an affordable budget.

We have had a look at how the 'Pros' are doing it and reviewed our favourite looks.

Monotone style

The simplest and safest option for a mix and match dining suite is the monochrome style. Using your existing timber furniture and some extra chairs, paint everything the one colour to create this eclectic yet sophisticated look. Or jazz it up using one vibrant colour to a mix of chairs set around a timber table.


Industrial style

The mix and match dining suite is the perfect complement to the industrial style home. The use of different colours, textures, finishes and chair styles fits perfectly with the raw finishes and industrial vibe. We love the mix of timber, metal and upholstered chairs used by this designer to create this unique industrial look.


Homestead style

Perhaps the original creator of the mix and match style, traditional homesteads used a mix of random chairs out of necessity with much of life centred around the dining table. To create this authentic rustic look collect a few different styles of timber chairs and leave them in all of their aged and battered glory. A long, solid timber table completes the look to create a warm and homely atmosphere.


Multi coloured style

Great for the family this bright and cheerful style adds fantastic colour to your space and doubles as a fun family project. Everyone can choose their favourite chair from the local second hand store, add in an afternoon of sanding and painting and your new dinging suite is ready to go.

We recommend you chose your preferred colours and tones before heading to the paint store to ensure your colours work together with your existing décor.


Eclectic style

If you're thinking all these options look great but are a bit to 'themed' for your place then a simple eclectic style is the way to go. With no need for painting or any specific guidelines just chose a few different chair styles to go with your existing décor and away you go. So if you are looking for something a bit different be daring and try your hand at a mix and match dining suite.
