Perfection is unattainable, unsustainable, overrated – and boring. And one space of your home where this stands particularly true is where you eat. Because gone are the days of pristine all-in-one dining sets, complete with matchy-matchy dining chairs. Now, it’s all about mixing and matching to suit your taste, reflect your love for vintage anything, complement the color palette of your home, add a touch of print, or just plain practice eclecticism.
There is, however, a method to the madness. Develop the character of your dining room by using chairs of contrasting heights, adding a bench to the mix, playing with different shades of one color, grouping by era, and experimenting with a high/low mix. The end result will be a dining room that is uniquely yours, as evidenced by this edition of Eye Candy.
