Here’s a question do you skillfully blend your chairs around your dining table creating a calming vibe or do you mix and match to your heart’s content. I say do either as both choices look fabulous and chic. I am a big fan of an old rustic table hanging out with some super modern chairs as the contrast between old and new is enchanting. I spend more time at my dining table than I do hanging out onÂ my sofa – pre dinner drinks, supper, oodles of paperwork – it becomes a restaurant, home office and chill out zone all at once. The key is to choose furnishings that fit in with your space – either echoing the property’s history or counter balancing it all together. Timeless, beautiful yet magical is the look I am after.
