Hello Etta, I'm not quite sure how I was led to this particular question from you, but I saw your other questions and your idea book photos and thought you'd enjoy seeing my artwork. Isn't this a wonderful site for design ideas?
I look forward to hearing from you!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Why Your Room Wants a Small Chair
You can happily use two small chairs that are not a matched pair, as has been done so well in this room. Because the chairs are different (but similar in scale), the room has a natural, it-just-sort-of-happened look that feels immediately comfortable and welcoming.

Here's an example that I really like of two different types of chairs by the fireplace. To me, it looks much better (and gets me color and variety) that I'm seeking versus all chairs being the same.
