Trend alert: mix and match bar stools for a unique look

We've discussed mixing and matching dining chairs before. We've even discussed choosing contrasting colours for your overall interior design. But today, we're going to talk about a new trend alert. You may never have thought to mix and match bar stools before but we're telling you now, it can look really unique and impressive. Usually, we associate bar stools with uniformity and symmetry but the modern interior design world is rebelling against the norm! More and more, we're seeing different styles of stools in cool bars, hip cafes and city-centre workspaces. To achieve that same trendy mismatched look in your own home, keep reading.

Achieving the look at home

Now, you might not have the budget of a high-end industrial-themed bar or a fashionable agency office. However, you can mix and match bar stools on a budget and still get that striking look. There are a few different ways to achieve the mismatched style without your bar stools looking too out of place. Firstly, we'd recommend tying the different colours or textures into your overall room design. For example, if your room is a pink and metallic theme, your bar stools could be different shades of pink and various metal types. But don't go for green and fabric... it just wouldn't work. If you want to save a bit of money, why not collect bar stools over time? When one catches your eye, invest in it but don't worry about completing the collection in one go. Curating a mix and match selection of seating will take time if done properly, anyway. Check charity shops, thrift stores and online retailers to get the best bargains! In terms of the actual mixing, it's up to you if you want to mix colours, designs, textures or all three. Don't go too crazy - try to keep some family resemblance between each stool so the room looks carefully thought-out and tasteful.

But don't just take our word for it. The best way to pull off any new trend in the home is simply to look at visual inspiration. Pinterest is going to be your new best friend. To get you started, we've found some examples we really like.
