There are plenty of misconceptions when it comes to furniture and mixing various kinds of materials. From different woods, to metal elements, matchy-matchy furniture sets are no longer on the agenda in terms of indoor or outdoor dining furniture. So, the answer is yes, you can mix and match wooden furniture. Once you open your mind to the realisation that matching wooden furniture sets have lost their moment in the spotlight, the options become endless in terms of your outdoor living area and the interesting ways you can style it.
Mix The Old With The New
If you’ve been slowly buying various pieces for your indoor and outdoor living space, then there’s a strong chance you’ve already got a mix of various wooden tones in your back yard. The general ambiance will definitely feel more organic with mixed wood grains, as if you’ve been collecting separate pieces over a period of time. Our large range of wooden outdoor furniture online is ideal for mixing, matching, and entertaining your friends and family. It’s all about vintage wood mixed with modern pieces.
Incorporate Different Materials
Don’t shy away from putting together various shades of teak, to timbers and oaks. By integrating metals, stone and glass alongside your wooden pieces, your space will instantly embody a contemporary feel, and avoid the drags of monotonous trends of the past. If you’re unsure, check out our furniture online for inspiration, such as the Atlanta Bench. Combined of both teak and stainless steel, the industrial style bench is a modernised take on timeless outdoor dining furniture.
Combination Colour Palettes
Just remember, wooden tones are neutral in terms of hues, so intertwining different pieces with one another may seem a little scary at first, but it works when it comes to keeping up to date in the home décor style stakes. Our Camden Extension Table comes in a light teak, ideal for mixing with darker wood grains, wicker, stainless steel or aluminium seats. It’s pretty easy to work natural toned woods with each other, but if you’re concerned that you’ve gone overboard with mismatching wood grains, you can tie the different styles and finishes together with an accent colour to create a continuity throughout the area. Try using throws, pillows, stools and rugs to help create a harmonious flow of colour.
Match Your Undertones
Although the woods you are using don’t need to match, they should definitely complement each other. No one says you have to go wild mixing wood tones, particularly if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed. Whilst you’re putting everything together, you’ll generally start to get a feel of what works and what doesn’t. Top tip? Check out the tone of the wood to see whether it has warm or cold undertones, and make sure that they work together. The finish of the woods isn’t important, in fact, mixing them gives them a modern, cooler edge.
