Years ago when we bought our first house in Seattle, I wanted a cohesive and consistent look with my decor. I hadn’t really defined my design style and fell into the trap of buying an entire room grouping from a local furniture store. I thought the furniture group would give me the consistency I was looking for and I could then use accessories to add the personality. Over the years my style has evolved, my design skills have been honed and today I would never think of purchasing a package group of furniture. It’s also something I steer my design clients away from because there are so many other ways to create a cohesive design statement in your home.
The point I’m trying to make is that your decor should be just as multi-dimensional as you are. It should be a combination of things that give your home its personality.
There are lots of ways to add unique flair to your decor and one of my favorites is with mixing up your dining room chairs. If your style in eclectic and whimsical you can use a mix of different chairs around the table. Or you can replace your king & queen chairs with pieces that make a statement.
DESIGN PERSONALITY USING KING & QUEEN DINING CHAIRS
I love the look of this dining room with oversized king & queen chairs in a neutral fabric that works with the wallpaper and other textiles in the room.

Contrasting king & queen chairs are an easy way to introduce bold patternwrok into the dining room. Using a similar chair shape as the side chairs creates a sense of balance and symmetry around the table.
Upholstered end chairs help to anchor a dining table especially when the table is oversized or the side chairs are sleek and see-thru.
These dining spaces just ooze personality with a mix of chair styles and banquette seating. If you’re considering switching out your king & queen chairs, upholstered club chairs are always a good choice.
Just like drapes, upholstered end chairs will help to visually soften the hard surfaces within a dining room.
