Mismatched Dining Room Seating

Good day, my friends! I hope your weekend was most excellent. Mine was quiet and relaxing, filled with lots of family time and a little bit of shopping... perfect! 

I've recently been intrigued by the mismatched dining seating that's out there. I say intrigued because it's not a look I am naturally drawn to or something I feel I could pull off very easily. It seems tricky to do and even trickier to do well. The mismatched look adds interest though; it's a bold move in my opinion. It also means you can switch things up a little and you don't have to invest in an entire set of chairs if you don't want to.


Some like to really mix it up...

Others stick to a mismatched but still somewhat symmetrical look. (I might have a better chance at pulling this off.)

What do you think of this look? Is it interesting and lovely or just "wrong" in your mind. I agree that it's not for everyone, but it has a certain unexpected charm to it, especially when done well. 


Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a good start to your week. It's raining again where I live. Time to pull out the books and puzzles!

p.s. Thanks for your suggestions on which collage option to go with. I didn't get around to hanging the frames this past weekend. Hopefully I can fit it in sometime this week.

  1. I like the look when there are 2 chair styles (or bench) involved but after that it starts to be too much for me. The only place I could envision more would be at a cottage or chalet.

  2. I also prefer the ones with only two styles of chairs - the last photo is so beautiful!
