STYLE IT MISMATCHED!

Does this happen to you?

Yaay! You are super excited to throw an awesome party. Everything is set. And now, you  just need to arrange the seating. To your horror, there are more people than similar chairs!!!  And you are thinking your decor is ruined 🙁

Don’t Worry. Be Happy! Coz, this is an awesome state to be in (ofcourse, conditions apply 😉 ).  Mismatched Chair Decors are totally in!

I personally don’t like anything cliché. I am always drawn to unique – something that depicts your personality & awesome. And this is one such! However, there are a few design rules while styling the mix & match theme. Beware, as it easily tilts from Chic to Disaster!

So here are the top 15 interesting ways & design guidance to style the mismatched chairs for your next celebration.

Although the chair designs are a mismatch, the seating levels should never be. Ensure that the seating design offers a common height match.

 

 

3. FAIRY WHITE

You can never go wrong with all white! Especially if you want to play the ethereal look.

 

 

4. TOUCH WOOD

A thumb rule you could use is to stick to a common chair design or material of construction. All wood styling adds a beautiful rustic look.

 

 

5. RAINBOW PLAY
