Break the rules and bring a splash of colour to your dining room this winter

Break the rules and bring a splash of colour to your dining room this winter

Here at Icona Furniture we believe that one design “rule” that was meant to be broken is the one that suggests your dining room table and chairs need to perfectly match.  Some of the best interior design themes and styles are borne out of the necessity of making unexpected choices and one such choice is the pairing of your table with chairs that are in a different style or finish. 

A long standing concept within commercial interiors, the creation of a fresh modern look by breaking up your dining set is becoming an increasing popular trend in residential interior design.  This step change can be as simple as selecting chairs in a different style from the table or depending on the theme of your room it can be as extravagant as individual chairs which feature different styles, materials and colours. 

At Icona Furniture we have hundreds of dining chairs and tables available in differing styles, finishes and colours and to help you break the rules we have put together a selection of our chairs that will help you bring colour and a fun designer look to your dining area;

One chair which will add the wow factor to an interior is the Diva chair from leading Italian designers Ciacci Kreaty.  From the creative mind of Gina Carollo this chair features a stunning seat design that is crafted from durable polycarbonate.  The striking seat is support by a choice of either straight or sledge legs constructed from sleek painted steel, both types of legs allow the chair to be stacked.

This designer chair is available with a range of differing seat colours making it ideal for creating a unique designer look by mixing a range of colours within the same dining area.
