When you think about a typical dining room you think of a large table dominating the room surrounded by six identical dining chairs. However, there are so many ways to escape this boring dining room! A fun switch up is to add booth or bench seating to your dining table. Doing a combination of chairs and a bench or building a bench nook around a smaller table will definitely make your dining room the center of attention! Antique stores, flea markets, and of course Chairish, are all great places to find one of a kind dining chairs.
Pattern and color are also fun options! Even if you decide to keep the chairs unison, adding color or a fun pattern will brighten up the space and make it much more welcoming. Use different chair heights together or even mix colors. You can also trade in your traditional rectangular table for a fun circular one; a circular table will bring a sense of closeness into your dining room!
The industrial style is hot right now! I love the look of mixing natural elements with industrial metals. The best part about this look is that it is very unique, you have the ability to use a lot of creativity with this! Don't be afraid to mix and match chairs and other elements.
