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

ADVICE

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.

Living room floor plan

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.

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? 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.
