How to mix contemporary sofa and classic dining set in a single room?


Reader’s question

"I am thinking about buying a duo square extension dining table measuring 140x140 cm. I wonder if it is practical. Is a 4 legged table comfortable for eight people to be seated? I personally prefer French style dining table and chairs. On the other hand I have a contemporary sofa and a wingback chair in the living room. Should I dare to mix these two furnishings?"

Our recommendations

We select the dining table size and shape by taking into account of the room dimensions and our style preferences.

The square 140x140 cm dining table comfortably seats 8 people as long as the 4 legs have slim construction or better the table stands on one leg. You have attached a floor plan of your place. We suggest that the dining table should be placed with the long side parallel to the sofa in case you select rectangular table. We also suggest that the wingback chair should be placed opposite the fireplace.

Regarding the mix n’ match style you are thinking about, we believe that it is a process to create a place stylish and comfortable. You can combine retro and vintage elements with modern pieces and show your personal style.

Should I dare to mix these two furnishings? A contemporary living room sofa surely matches a French style dining set. You can choose modern chairs to mix with the classic dining table for a more dynamic result. Be sure to use the same decorating scheme on all room elements, eg items, textiles, art pieces.



Would purple glass mosaic tiles go with black and white tiles in my bathroom?


Reader’s question

"I have difficulty choosing tiles for my master bedroom bathroom. It measures 7ft by 7ft and I wonder if purple or pink glass mosaic tiles match black and white tiles". 

Our recommendations

Black and white is a classic, elegant and timeless color combination for your bathroom. With the addition of purple or pink glass mosaic tiles your bathroom will promote harmony and calmness.

black white floor, black white, tile, checkerboard tile

These two colors can be incorporated into a checkerboard tile pattern on the floor. Two perpendicular walls can be striped with black and white tiles and the other walls can be covered with white tiles. Alternatively black tiles can go up to about 32’’ above the floor and the rest can be tiled white.

Purple glass mosaic border tiles can be placed in either horizontal or vertical positions, eg mosaic tiles on both sides of the shower enclosure, or around the mirror.
