Hi The red that is the drapes does seem to match the chairs. Perhaps because of lighting and the way images show up on screen, the carpet seems to match too. I am thinking, it seems like a soft cranberry? Love it!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

“A dining room is a boardroom with chairs around it,” Larkins says, sighing. “It’s one of the rooms that’s most difficult to make interesting.”To shake things up, he played with the traditional concept of the red dining room by making nearly everything except the walls red. He hung red curtains at the windows and covered the floor with a hand-knotted red and white rug, atop which sits an antique country French table with a parquet top. Louis XVI–style French chairs anchor either end of the table, which is flanked by red upholstered klismos-style chairs and French chairs from the 1940s with rings on their backs. “I wanted the chairs to be different but also similar,” the designer says. Along those lines, he adorned one wall with a collection of handblown glass discs from SkLO, which he placed opposite a display of antique red and white china — a case of old echoing new. Rug: The Rug Company; chandelier: Niermann Weeks, Ty Larkins Interiors
