Montage: Same Chair, Different Colors

By Stylecarrot @StyleCarrot

You see a lot of the mismatched dining chair look in magazines and blogs, but really, how many real people do you know that live like that? Even if one half of a couple wanted to curate just the right chairs, the other would likely protest. I suppose there are some quirky beach houses, passed down  and shared with extended families, that cultivate a mismatched dining chair ensemble by default.

One could however, get away with a more streamlined approach by choosing one style of chair, and using them in different colors. I used two each of white, charcoal, and robin’s egg blue Eames chairs for Meredith’s dining room; it looks really pretty and pulled together. It’s a fun look to do with chairs for the patio, where casual and fun are called for.

Mixing molded fiberglass Eames chairs is the most commonly seen execution, probably because they have long been available in a multitude of colors. But there are plenty of other options too. Or you could even start with pale wood chairs, and use paint to accent the legs, for a “dipped” look. Or mix woods or metals. Here are 16 dining rooms that use the same chair in different colors around the table.
