Everybody loves a good mix and match dining room chair set. But, getting the right combinations is very important.
We’ve found this neat little guide that tells you what goes with what.
Taking inspiration from this, here are some pairs we’ve found online!
1- Same C0lour + Different Design
These two chairs are totally different in material, texture and shape. Having them the same colour makes them work together so well. We can imagine these neutral coloured chairs at a chunky wooden table with a bright colourful bunch of flowers on top.

2- Same Design + Different Colour
These two colours work so well together! Would look great in a rustic or modern home. A great design with soft colours. Who doesn’t like an Eames chair!

3- Same Style + Different Design
These two designs are only subtly different. Mix up the colours to make them seem even more different, or keep them matching. Plus they look nice and comfy.

4- Same Material + Different Design
These two leather chairs with their different colours and styles would look great in an industrial, rustic or modern home. The armchair looks super comfortable and supportive.

5- Vintage + Modern
One is plastic the other is wood with padding, so different yet the same style. A great mix of vintage and modern design.

6- Play With Height
A tall heavy leather chair with a regular light upholstered chair. Have the taller ones at the end of the tables to make a symmetrical mix of heights.

7- Play With Texture
Plastic and upholstered. Hard and soft. The colour from the soft chair with the clear of the hard are perfect contrasts for a alternating arrangement.

8- Play With Weight
A heavy wooden chair and a light plastic chair in the same colour. Again a great mix match.

9- Play With The Details
A perfect example of playing with detail. The negative and positive combinations of black and white keep the chairs similar but at the same time strikingly different.

10- The Odd One Out
We would use the metal chair as the odd one out. We like the different weights, colours and materials in these chairs and think they work the well together.
