Mix and match in the dining room with these easy hacks from Target

09 Sep 2021

Switch things up in the dining room with Target’s Vintage Dining range. If you’re after a classic mix of retro comfort and style with a touch of nostalgia, then this range is for you. The Vintage Dining range will help you keep comfy during dinner parties and game nights without sacrificing style.


The Emerald Vintage School Chair will add a touch of nature to your dining room. Pair it with a wooden table from the Vintage Dining range and flooring stained in Resene Colorwood Natural.

With a multitude of styles and colours, it’s never been easier to create the ultimate mix and match look while also enhancing that retro vibe. Here’s some tips on how to mix and match like a pro in your dining room:

Material matters

When it comes to creating cohesion in a space, don’t limit yourself to a single colour. There are many ways to create a mindful dining setup that works together whiles still adding interest to the room. Try sticking to the same material, such as the comfortable faux leather of the Target Vintage Dining range and mix it up with different colours in the same style. This will create a relaxed vibe while still making your eclectic dining space feel intentional.

Go with the grain

If you have wooden accents or flooring in your home, bring in wooden dining features to add a sense of consistency to the room. It’s easier to mix and match your dining furniture when some of your pieces have a link to the rest of the space. For example, the black steel frame of Target’s Vintage Round Dining table can be tied into the room through painted vases or a dark feature wall in Resene Nero, but can just as easily work in a space with timber accents thanks to its wooden look veneer.  

Expand your range

Create a versatile space by introducing dining stools and benches into the mix. Benches are a great way to create a cosy look while still keeping things practical. With no back rest or arm rests, benches can really open up a space and make your dining table seem more inviting. Introducing a dining stool or two will also help you craft a fun atmosphere and will allow you to get creative in your dining space.
