How to Mix Dining Tables & Chairs for Any Style

Great style starts with great imagination. Mixing materials and textures lays the groundwork for a warm, welcoming dining space. Pieces need not perfectly match, but complement each other instead. That’s why we look to experimenting with shape, scale and contrast, to strike balance and play up materials’ natural beauty. A well-styled dining space should promote comfort and easy conversation, and when that’s achieved, the rest falls into place. See some of our go-to dining table and chair pairings below, then let inspiration take over to design a timelessly stylish dining setup in any space.
