If you don’t know much about interior design, it can be hard to mix and match your furniture into one coherent look. But that doesn’t mean you’re destined to only buy complete furniture sets. In today’s furniture blog, we answer some of your home décor questions and discuss how to coordinate furniture the right way.
It depends on what you mean by the word ‘match.’ Generally speaking, all of the furniture in a specific room should complement each other. Many people buy furniture sets, like a dining set that comes with a table and matching chairs. While sets are designed to work together, they aren’t the only option. Your furniture can “match” without coming from the same set and without the kinds of similarities that are usually seen in many furniture sets, i.e. similar finishes, upholstery, colors, detailing, etc.
Yes and no. By nature, accent chairs stand out from the other furniture in the room. That said, there should be some connection between your accent furniture and the other furniture in the room. If, for example, you’re decorating a living room with a beige sofa, you may choose an accent chair that’s a color featured on one of the couch’s throw pillows. Similarly, if your home is decorated in the modern interior design style, you’ll want to choose an accent chair with modern features that mimic certain characteristics and complement the other furniture in the living room.
