Let’s all sing it from the mountain tops: The days of matching wood furniture sets are a thing of the past. Truthfully, it was a decorating rule that really never was — and for good reason. When all of the wood surfaces in a single space share the same tone, nothing stands out and the room falls flat. Allowing various wood finishes to coexist can result in a more eclectic, layered look that lends the right amount of texture and depth. The overall feel is more organic, as if individual pieces have been collected over time.
There is no magic formula when it comes to mixing wood furniture finishes, but here are a few guidelines that may help you find your footing.
Start with An Anchor Piece
Pick a Dominant Wood Tone
Soften the Mix with a Rug
When you’ve got a lot of legs in various wood tones, give them common ground with an area rug. A rug also helps to create a soothing transition between the furniture and wood floor.
