A major trend is emerging in home decor: making a statement. It’s usually just a piece of furniture that’s wildly different in style, design, and appearance, creating a bold contrast to the rest of the room. An antique dresser, table, chandelier, sofa, chair or anything else you like can be your personal bold statement that makes you edgy. In addition, you can create bold, contrasting combinations with several pieces of furniture like the ones we share today – an antique dining table and modern chairs. Impossible to bring them together? Is not it! Get ready for the coolest and edgiest combos!
Contrast chairs and a table
The most popular way to rock a vintage dining table and modern chairs is to buy or buy things that are very contrasting. You can accentuate the vintage table with clear acrylic chairs, with metal chairs, with bold sculptural chairs, or with bold upholstery. If you have a rustic vintage table, consider bold velvet upholstery and an elegant design for the chairs. If the table is very exquisite, calm it down with some metal chairs. The more different the pieces of your dinnerware look, the cooler the result will be.
If you’re not ready for a super contrasting and bold look, you can opt for a softer transitional combination: rock the chairs that match the color of your table. For example, if you have a whitewashed table, add chairs with white upholstery or paint the legs of the dining table black and add matching modern black chairs. It’s another cool and edgy combo to rock.
If you don’t have the same dining chairs or want to create a bold, eclectic look, opt for mismatched chairs. Set up your table and add all kinds of chairs in different colors – modern, rustic, industrial, vintage, glamorous and many others. The colors can also be completely unsuitable. Don’t be afraid to mix things up – upholstery, materials, looks and details – Eclectic is the new classic.
