While it used to be quite common to purchase a matching table and set of dining chairs, today, designers are creating increasingly more eclectic interiors where the dining table and chairs often have absolutely nothing to do with each other. While we love the “thrown together” look of this approach, getting the combination right takes a trained eye. So today we wanted to share three great examples of designers who have created this eclectic dining look using furniture pieces that you can easily purchase online or find at an antique store or vintage flea market. In this image below, designer Michael S Smith pairs an American center hall table with four Louis XVI style chairs.
This is a great, and unexpected pairing by decorator J. Randall Powers, where an English antique table is combined with Milo Baughman chrome and leather chairs. On a side note–don’t you love the green paint color used on the kitchen cabinets? In this Manhattan duplex designed by Alfredo Paredes, a rustic, reclaimed wood table is used with some very chic vintage French aluminum chairs.
Once you see enough of these expert pairings, you’ll be able to imitate many of them yourself!
