Mismatched

Mismatched chairs around the dining table certainly isn't anything new but it's a design trend I really admire. And with so many chairs available at yard sales for cheap, it's an easy way to add great style and personality to your table without the extra cost...

I really like this top grouping of chairs. Most appear to be the same chair but are covered in different vintage fabrics. So after you find your set of chairs at a local thrift store or Habitat for Humanity, put the money towards great fabrics and some upholstery. Or learn to upholster yourself. It's a great way to give your chairs a new lease on life. The green chairs are great as well. All it takes is a coat of paint to tie these mismatched chairs together and impress the neighbors.

Finding the same chair but in different colors is a sweet idea, as well as painting them to match the overall color scheme of the room. You can also add different patterened cushions to the chairs as well...whatever you do, just make it exude your personality. 

Sometimes we find that perfect chair in a store that we can't stop staring at. Because of its cost we can't afford to buy more than one so ...just buy one. Then surround it with other chairs found and gathered. Beautiful...

I like this outdoor scene as it feels so Southern to me...relaxed, carefree, eclectic and charming. What a great idea for an outdoor dinner party. I'm hating this cold weather right now so this gives me a little hope that the sun will be shining again soon...

Love the clock pictures in the last photo! I also love the cat running across the picture, so cute! I would love to have these chairs in my house!

Take a close look at the last picture. It's based on the Mad Hatter's tea party in Alice in Wonderland. Clocks, mismatched chairs and all!

Love going against the norm. So beautiful.

I love the mix-match look! And it's kinda big in the "green movement" like recycling, or shopping at thrift stores for stuff like this. It's absolutely gorgeous, and I love the style. It has a very cool/vintage feel to it :D thanks for sharing!
