First, it’s important to clarify the difference between antique furniture and vintage pieces. Pieces that are considered by experts to be antique are typically at least 100 years old, a classification that is based on U.S. Tariff Act of 1930. Styles included in this age group include pieces from the Victorian, Edwardian and Colonial eras, and, as we move through the calendar, early Arts and Crafts pieces.

In full disclosure, a farmhouse dining table will make fast friends with virtually any vintage dining chair. Metal industrial chairs, ladder back chairs, and Windsor styles all look perfectly curated when parked under a farm table. But for something a bit more unexpected, we love a rustic table surrounded by a mishmash of upholstered French dining chairs. The look is all storybook charm—romantic, but perfectly accessible.

Be sure to take measurements before doing your shopping, to determine how many chairs will fit your table. If you’re buying a table along with your chairs, be sure to take measurements of your room to ensure you don’t end up with pieces that are too big for the space, or too small to provide the visual balance you want.

To achieve the ultimate look, opt for a rectangular Mid-Century table from a maker like Jens Risom or Hans Wegner (you get the drift: plank top, straight pencil legs). If your table features a lighter hue like maple, you might think about surrounding it with a set of white or chartreuse S-chairs, while a dark table will gel magnificently with black chairs. If opting for the latter, partner your dining set with black and metallic accents and a cowhide rug for a look that is sheer rock n’ roll glam.

Eames chairs are the hot sauce of the design world (as in, they go with absolutely everything). Recruit them for the right interiors and they can feel mod, contemporary, or even Scandinavian. But when paired with a raw slab dining table, something unexpectedly 70s bohemian emerges; the combo itself reading like a meandering trip through California cool (with pit stops in both Pacific Palisades and Big Sur). It’s relaxed, yet chic; a throwback, but somehow distinctively modern. In case you couldn’t tell, we can’t get enough.

To get the look, collect a myriad of French-inspired styles (fauteuils, bergères, and anything with an oval-shaped back). Seek out winged armchairs specifically for the table ends, and use armless chairs or smaller fauteuils to line the sides. The result will be marvelously Mad Hatter-esque, yet by sticking to pale upholsteries and wood frames that are relatively similar in tone, it won’t dissolve into chaos.

Breaking up a Mid-Century dining set can be a bit, well, sad—they were made for each other, after all. But once you muster up the courage to do it (and subsequently introduce your newly single table to some slinky Verner Panton S chairs), we promise the payoff is well worth the pain.
