Design Dilemma: Mismatched dining chairs...LOVE it!

from Coastal Living

I have had a dining table that I absolutely love sitting in my dining room for six years.  It is sitting on a rug that I coveted for over a year and a half.  The drapes on the windows are exactly what I wanted.  And everything is sitting in a room painted "Flint Smoke"- the perfect shade of blue gray.  There is just one problem- we don't ever use the dining room... because... we have no dining chairs.

It has become a joke at this point.  I have been searching six years for the right chairs, and I only just now realized that I am not going to find what I am looking for. Why?...because I don't want the expected.  I want the unusual, the striking, the one of a kind.  I want a room that has something to talk about everywhere you look.

I think I was waiting for the go ahead from my fabulous husband.  With his help...and blessing...I am going on a search for a set of mismatched chairs.  I love the look and I can't wait to bring it to life in my own house.  Here are some of the pictures that are inspiring me on this quest for the perfect dining chairs:

I can't wait to see how this turns out.  Maybe I will throw a dinner party to celebrate being able to throw a dinner party : )
