There's no real rule to mixing and matching your furniture - you can go as wild as you'd like - but it would be wise to choose dining chairs that share a similar design element with your table. If you have a square shaped table, go for chairs with square seats, and so on. This will keep things looking intentional even if they don't otherwise strictly match with each other. Don't forget to consider size either. If you have a particularly large table, choose larger than usual chairs so they don't get dwarfed. Comfort levels Just because it's a dining chair, it doesn't mean it has to any less comfortable than any of the other chairs you might have in your home. Think about how long you spend at the table and how often you're there - are you the kind of family who all eat together, or do you tend to eat your meals in different rooms around the house? However long you spend around the table, you'll still want something that's comfortable to sit on.


Giving your dining room a much needed update doesn't necessarily require a complete overhaul of your decor. Getting a new set of chairs is a quick, easy, and cost effective way of freshening things up, but before you start browsing the web, there are a couple things you have to consider. The table Unless you're going to be replacing your dining table while you're at it (in that case, skip right on to the next section), you're going to be choosing chairs that don't necessarily pair with your existing table. Luckily for you, mixing and matching your furniture is massively on trend at the moment. However, you'll want to make sure your furniture choices look deliberate, and not like you've sourced everything from the bargain bin at your local homeware store.


“My favorite dining chairs are somewhat similar in proportion because I neither like the look of most high backed chairs nor find them comfortable. I always gravitate towards a lower, more casual chair. All of these chairs are vintage as I like things that have developed a patina, but you can find some beautiful reissues from companies like Vitra. My personal choice rather than a reissue would be to choose something really new both as a design and its production.”

When a good friend asked for some dining room chair suggestions, it seemed like a simple task. But it’s weirdly difficult to find ones that are both comfortable and aesthetically appealing. So we asked a few of our favorite interior designers for the ones they think look good. And because many of these (don’t we all want a set of original Jean Prouvé Standard Chairs?) require a second mortgage, we dug around for some great affordable options, too.
