When it comes to your dining room, be brave and throw caution to the wind. Choose the design road less traveled, and forgo the matchy-matchy dining sets that are sold at every furniture retailer. Instead, opt to surround your table with a unique and eclectic blend of chairs in different styles, colors, materials, and finishes. Here are 12 ways to work this casually chic mismatched seating trend into your dreamy digs. Now that's what we call being a rebel!
1. Boho Chic
2. Industrial Living
Give your lofty dining room a gritty and urban makeover by pairing a rustic table with a collection of vintage metal-frame chairs.

If you could have dinner with one of the design greats, who would it be? Eames? Thonet? What the heck ... follow the lead of this Swedish country cottage and invite them all. A rustic table — made with wood floor planks from the 1700s — is surrounded by iconic classics. Now that's what we call dining by design.
4. Rustic Farmhouse
5. Modern Luxury
6. Minimalist Heaven
7. Midcentury Glam
If you're having trouble letting go of your grandmother's seriously outdated decor rule — that all of your dining chairs have to look the same — don't worry: You can take baby steps into this new and exciting world. All of the chairs in this bright, midcentury-inspired dining room by Dabito from Old Brand New are the same except for the sculptural black Bolah Chairs at either end of the table.
