Do You Have Mismatched Dining Chairs?

I love the mismatched chairs around this Saarinen table in the home of Virginia Johnson. It's quirky, but it works because there's not much going on otherwise in the way of color and pattern in the room. But, I've seen this look executed in busier, brighter rooms, and it doesn't always work. Do you have mismatched dining chairs?Source

btw I love the mismatched chair look, it just takes the edge of matchy-matchy interiors. Also it's a great way of dressing down a rustig table, to prevent your room from looking to much like an old farmhouse. But I love eclectic interiors in general, they seem so much more personal and creative to me!

the chandelier looks vintage to me Sandra, but I think IKEA do similar 70s 80s origami style lamps, at least last time I looked!

We did have a nice set of 4 chairs (matching) for our dining room table until my brother rocked back on one and broke it. He took it back to his house intending to "FIX IT" that was 3 months ago. Now we have to roll the office chair from the other room, and the boys inevitably fight over who gets to sit in it. Brothers.. priceless.

But I do like the mismatched look. If we have guests, we'll end up with mismatched chairs.

No, but I want them! I have a friend with a bunch of mismatched chairs, all painted blue except one that's painted yellow. It's so cute!
yuk, hate that look, all or nothing for me man!

I live in an apartment with myself and me and I, and our two cats, so we only have two chairs, and they didn't come with our table, but they match beautifully. If we ever need more, then we might go with things that aren't so matchy.

Yes, I have never really been into sets or things that fit too perfectly together. I mismatch everything.

Nope, I prefer more unity for my dining set.

No. My dining chairs are unusual in shape. The matched grouping brings out that quality (in a good way).

No, I actually just did a dining room chair reupholstery project and am kind of sad I didn't think to mix match. I love the look of different vintage chairs all painted the same color.

Oh no I don't think you were rude :)

Mine all match, but mismatched could work in some settings, I suppose.

Oh, I hope I wasn't rude! I just think this doesn't look intentional. It just looks like you ran out of chairs.

"I don't think it works in this photo." I was actually going to say that too but I didn't want to sound rude.

I don't think it works in this photo. I like it in some restaurants I've been to where all the chairs look really neat and old and vintage.

Nope. We only have 2 chairs because it's just my hubby and I but they both match. They didn't come with the table but they fit with it perfectly!
