Everyone knows and expects the traditional dining table set in any dining room to be a table with chairs that directly match it and for all the chairs to look alike. 



It's uniform, conservative, and quite the norm.  But for those that want to make a much more daring statement when having guests over for dinner or brunch, a great centerpiece dining table with a differing set of mismatched chairs can be singularly sensational and will give your dining space an eclectic look that goes outside the box.



Who says it has to be uniform?  With a great eye and taste for style while paying careful attention to pattern and color it can be done! 


Think an unfinished wood table with mismatched fabric chairs in paisley prints and solid colors...or a formal dark wood table with mismatched arm and side chairs, the arm chair doesnt have to be at the end of the table!  Or even a glass table with black leather chairs along with silver damask print chairs to offset it...the possibilities are almost endless.


An eclectic server or bar with barstools can finish it off also.

Such a dining area also has the ability to add fun to your room and thus create a more free-spirited, comfortable, and less formal attitude to your dining experience. 


Many creative types such as artists, designers, painters, and so forth tend to lean more towards this type of decor with their living spaces...including the dining room as they are always seeking inspiration in most things. 



Try your eye or that of your interior designer's eye and take the challenge to go outside the norm next time you got to your local showroom. 


Try looking at the single side chairs in the dining department of even mix one set of chairs with another table...you just might surprise yourself on your eclectic sense of style.
