- Match the same colour chairs of different styles. This way, you maintain the original colour palette you were going for, but add something special to the room's design that will always draw attention.
- Match different colour variations of the same chair style. If you mix and match your dining chairs this way, you will create a harmonious pop of colour without disturbing the way lines and shapes come together in your dining space.
- Match by the sameness - same material or the same style. Another great way to make sure you are playing around with styles and designs while keeping a balanced aesthetic is to choose dining chairs that are different from each other but can be linked by being made of the same material or being in the same style. For example, you can pick different chairs made of the same type of wood.
- Use the surrounding elements. You can choose varying dining chairs and instead focus on pairing them with other furniture and decor elements in the room. For example, choose a chair that will be the same colour as your drapes, a chair with the same colour palette or a pattern as the abstract painting on the wall and a chair matching the dining table. While totally mismatched, this combo will still make it feel like everything is neatly tied together.
A factor to remember when mixing modern dining chairs is that there are no rules - just choose good quality chairs, play around with the design and make the room feel like yours.
