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.
Note: If you are inspired & try out this style – please do share it at firstname.lastname@example.org. If it crosses the scrumdiddlyumptiously awesome meter, I will showcase it in the Purple Velvet Hall of Fame!
A collection of vintage chairs always works really well together.
2. LEVEL IT UP
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
You could go rainbow bright and play with colors, when you use a simple common chair theme (in this case, steel chairs).
6. ECLECTIC COLOR PALETTE
This style is not just quirky! By playing with the textures, styles and complementing color palettes, you can make it a very classy and an eclectic ensemble
7. DESSERT TABLE
A very simple cute prop up with decorations can serve as a dessert table, photo props, etc
Match the decor of the party. Add a similar style to the cushions and keep the chair colors mute. Check out the really awesome chevron design above
You can make it kitsch by playing with the cushion textures, patterns & colors.
Love the play of chairs & styles. You can go really wild. But just remember – they need to roll up to a common theme and focal design.
Take your classic neutral upholstery and pair it up. You could even add a modern piece amongst classic furnitures to break the design and make it really stand out!
12. STICK WITH ONE
Another safe , seldom go wrong option is to stick to a single color theme as a focal design & play around it
13. PRETTY PASTEL
Add a pretty pastel set up. Love the Ombre tablecloth!
14. COVER UP!
