Mastering the Art of Mixing and Matching Furniture Styles

Mastering the art of mixing and matching furniture styles can be one of the most exciting things in interior decorating. You can do this and still create a room that has a unified and cohesive look, with unique touches that make your space yours and yours alone.

There are plenty of benefits to mixing and matching furniture styles that go beyond bringing an artistic and creative touch to your home. While the goal is often to beautify your home and turn it into a gorgeous setting where you feel at ease (which it will!), placing a few pieces that go against the grain here and there can do much more.

Mor Furniture for Less offers furniture in virtually every style. We have glam furniture, traditional furniture, modern & contemporary pieces, transitional designs, those with industrial characteristics, antique-esque types, farmhouse genres, and more. No matter what your current style is, when you follow these four tips, you can mix and match at your wish to set the tone for your space.

How to Maintain the Theme of Your Room When Mixing and Matching Furniture Styles

Maintaining general unity throughout the room is the most important thing to remember when bringing in pieces of different styles. There are some key ways to do this so that the look you create looks seamless and well-polished.

A few points to consider are color, material, pattern or texture, and functionality. You want to maintain several of these elements when mixing up your furniture. For example, if you have crisp white walls and a beige sectional or loveseat in a transitional style, you can bring in a more "glam" piece that still fits right in.

1) How to Blend Furniture Styles

Consider adding this set of Mohsen Vases to the top of this Conner Coffee Table in marble and gold. You'll see how the crisp lines in the design of the vases complement the shape of the coffee table, while the colors are perfect for rooms with a lighter, neutral color scheme. The gold touches make the furniture pop and provide a decorative element of their own.

Adding this glam furniture style to the modern artwork and transitional sofa, you successfully blend styles that look like they're meant to be.

2) How to Mix Materials

You can also mix up your furniture arrangement with different materials while spanning styles. Here, it's critical to remember the color of your existing furniture material to find other pieces that complement the hue and shade of your other furniture.

Many rooms feature furniture in one primary material. Leather recliners and sectionals are the perfect examples of this. Another popular one is having a wooden entertainment console, end tables, and coffee tables. But it's easy to add different materials to this scheme.

Below, we see the Navi Sofa Chaise Sectional in Chestnut, a transitional style piece composed of faux leather. But you'll notice that the end and coffee tables are completely different materials. The Benton End Table in Espresso, made with wood and a solid glass top, blends effortlessly, yet the style is modern and contemporary.

Despite the different furniture style of each piece, the color scheme pulls it all together. Leather meets wood meets chic glass and appears perfect.

3) Bring in Different Textures

Specific furniture styles often have common material textures throughout their pieces. But introducing a new texture in your space is an excellent way to mix it up.

This is where it's fun to play with home decor, like beautiful accent pillows. You don't have to worry about the color scheme or materials in this context, as these textured pieces are often set as an element of decor, though they can still serve a functional purpose.

This Emmy Accent Pillow in Sherpa White features a modern and contemporary style but is perfect for adding an accent to almost any other style. Throw pillows make spaces look cozy and inviting. Rake this contemporary piece and pair it with this 6-Piece Bay Creek Panel Bed Set (a farmhouse piece), and it softens the space while offering a comfortable place to curl up and rest your head.

The fuzzy ivory-white texture of the Emmy Pillow contrasts the sleek, hard wooden structure of the bed set in a complementary way that brings the two styles together for a fashionable look.

4) Introduce New Patterns

A room with no pattern at all can look bland–as if it matches just a little bit too well. A great way to switch this up is to introduce new designs in small doses to break it up a tiny bit. You'll be amazed at the difference it can make.

Area rugs provide an excellent way to do this while bringing a bit of new texture to a hardwood or tile floor. Take this Sonoma Rug in Chocolate Circles that features a silky viscous material and modern/contemporary style. Place this beneath an item like the Provence Office Desk in Vintage, which has a more of a transitional feel.

The deep chocolate tones of the area rug with its beautiful pattern contrasts the white mainstay of the desk while matching the stunning dark wood top. What would otherwise be a home office space low on pattern now gets a burst of energy by adding one simple piece.

Benefits of Mixing and Matching Furniture Styles

It's super easy to mix and match furniture styles following the steps above, and most people do it for the look. But there are more benefits to count that may encourage you to bring in a few more different pieces. Here are three things to consider

1) Save on Cost

Switching up furniture styles in one space may help you save money. Some types, such as traditional or antique, can get expensive if you buy a complete matching set. And you may love the entertainment console but wish you had different end tables. Don't feel limited to purchasing a full furniture set in one style if it's not what you love.

You can purchase single pieces, often for less, and then choose a different furniture style for your end tables or coffee table. If you're looking to score big-time bargains and deals, this can help significantly.

When you shop at Mor Furniture for Less, we guarantee the lowest price in town on every item. We're so sure you'll get the best deals that we base our pricing on our exclusive double-the-difference guarantee*. This guarantee ensures that if you find an identical piece of furniture at another local retailer, we'll refund the difference times two. That's an offer no one can beat.

2) Maximize Your Use of Space

Your room may not have enough space to accommodate every furniture item you need. Here's your opportunity to mix and match all the pieces you want into one space. If you prefer a transitional oversized sectional, choosing a more minimalist modern, and contemporary coffee table can help.

You can go big on the furniture you want and place other styles throughout the space to get a cohesive look you love. Additionally, when sticking with all one style, you may be unable to arrange your furniture however you wish. By mixing and matching, you can make smaller pieces fit here and there without making the room look cramped and overcrowded.

3) Get Total Freedom

You may see a piece of furniture noted as "glam style," though the rest of your room is contemporary. Mixing up the styles lets you get the furniture you truly love. You don't have to stay bound to one type, and you get to create a look that no other home has.

When furniture shopping, focus less on the style category a piece falls into and more on how you envision it in your space and how it will tie in with the rest of the room. You can't go wrong if you follow the tips to create a cohesive feel.
