In today's design world, the old rules are being discarded, and homeowners are embracing a mix-and-match approach. Rustic antique dining tables now find themselves paired with more formal chairs in chic French Country farmhouse dining rooms. Vintage chairs with distressed finishes or slipcovered Parson's chairs are being used instead of matching chairs, creating a unique and eclectic dining room suite.

To further elevate the aesthetic appeal, some homeowners choose to protect the top of their antique tables with tempered glass. This not only adds a layer of protection but also creates an interesting visual element. Traditional clear glass or black and white tempered glass are popular choices for those seeking a retro-vintage vibe.
