Mis-matching is a casual, charming style that appeals to
those of us who are more relaxed and laid back. And, let's

Mis-matching can also feature uniformity - like these different styles
of chairs painted the same color and upholstered in the same fabric.
Nowhere is mixing different textures, colors, and styles
more appealing than at your own dining room table.
Not only is mis-matching individualistic, it's also economical.
What a charming way to expand your color palette.
