3 Ways To Mix and Match Cafe Chairs Successfully

If you’re looking to give your cafe an exciting or edgy new look then how about mixing and matching your chairs. Although most of us have been conditioned to think that the chairs in a cafe or restaurant need to be the same, in reality there’s nothing to say that this is indeed the case.

Mixing and marching chairs is a quick way of injecting personality into your cafe’s interior and means you don’t have to spend hours hunting down the exact same chair, when one needs replacing. In fact, thanks to our label sale which is running for the whole of July, you can pick up an assortment of chairs at discounted prices. Now that’s got to be a good incentive, right?

It’s easy to style mix and match chairs – just use your imagination. Who says you can’t throw in the odd brightly coloured chair around your white dining sets? Or why not scatter around some colourful stacking stools which you can bring out when you have a rush of customers through your doors. If you can’t decide between vintage or industrial, then why not have both?

Same design – different colours

The basic rule of mis matched chairs is to have a common theme which brings them altogether. For example in this instance you could choose one of our chair ranges which has lots of different colours to choose from, such as our replica Tolix metal chairs or our resin premium cafe chairs. This works well with communal dining tables since you can select one main colour for your chairs, say white, and then add a couple of different colours at each end of the table or place them in random spots. You wouldn’t expect it to work but somehow it just does.

Same material – different design

Another look which is easy to pull off is to choose the same material for all of your chairs, say metal or wood, but opt for varying designs. If you’ve chosen wood then you can even raise your game with an assortment of shades of wood from dark oak through to palest ash. Or if using metallic chairs try using gleaming bronzes interspersed with a more moody dark copper tone. You get the picture?

Different style – same colour

If you’re feeling particularly adventurous then how about combining a variety of styles all in the same colour. The trick here is to keep your colour consistent, ie. black or fire engine red, but vary the styles, height, and shape to create a look that is bold and eye-catching.

To be successful with mis matched chairs try to keep your décor relatively simple and allow the chairs to do the talking. Adding a fussy background will completely mess up the look you’re trying to create.
