Chairish Challenge: Mismatched Chairs

We were recently contacted by the company, Chairish, to participate in their latest Style Challenge:  pairing mismatched chairs. Chairish is a company that makes it fun and easy for design lovers to buy and sell pre-loved decor to one another. They have tons of unique vintage pieces that easily coordinate with several styles.

The mismatched dining chair look has been on trend for quite some time now. It’s a great way to add interest and dimension to a space and give it an eclectic, lived-in feel. Achieving this seemingly effortless look is easier said than done, but it helps to remember this tip:  All chairs should have a distinguishing feature that allows them to work together nicely. (Examples:  similar height, shape, color, style, material, etc.)

When first faced with this challenge, our perfectionist minds were a little weary of not having uniformity in our space, so this was truly a test!  There are several ways to achieve this look (as we stated above) but we chose to stick with a mid-century modern vibe in black and brown tones.  The chairs are all different but have that simplistic MCM style.  We paired our chairs with a beautiful Carrara marble table.2016-07-013

The walnut credenza is topped with a pair of Jana Bek’s brushstroke lamps and a simple round mirror.  To finish the space we added a colorful Persian rug, a linear brass chandelier, decorative dough bowl filled with succulents, and a rubber tree.
