Mixing modern with classic.

I think it looks kind of cool to mix modern pieces with vintage. It seems to make things a little bit more interesting. I read somewhere that if you do like a lot of vintage and antique styles its a good idea to do 30/70. 30% should be new and current, and then 70% can be vintage, or antiques.

So - I feel like the easiest way to do this mixing of styles would be in a dining room. Pick an antique style table and then do modern chairs (or vice-versa). Here are some ideas for the vintage-y table with modern seating.










So - you pick a table like these....




And then, choose a fun chair like these:
