The dining room can be a tricky space in a home. It's usually either a dumping ground with little to no identity or a way-too-formal space reserved for holidays and special occasions and scarcely seen in between. But this mystery room has a lot to offer — particularly with regards to style. That being said, I wish more people knew that you're not tied to buying a predetermined dining set from your local furniture mart. Get creative! As the dining room can be a perfect space to take some design risks and show off your more daring design side, we pulled some of our favorite mix-and-match pairings to get you started. Happy hunting!

1. Aramis Wood Dining Chairs at Domino, $243.99 for set of 2 / 2. La Phillippe Reclaimed Wood Dining Table at Overstock, $1,212.99

Whoever said you had to stick with one design era?! Well you didn't hear that from me. Here, these classic wishbone-style chairs perfectly nod to mid-century sleekness and with this rustic reclaimed beauty of a table by their side, the style mix is on point.

1. Harlow Mink Velvet Chair at CB2, $229 / 2. Addie Dining Table at Mitchel Gold + Bob Williams, $1,660

This combo is definitely bringing sexy back! Between the lush, mink velvet, high back chairs and the sleek brass base and glass top, things will surely be heated at this dinner party.

1. Eggree Velvet Accent Armchair in Light Green at Amazon, $94.99 / 2. Westville Dining Table at Target, $149.98

We like to call this power couple country chic (well, a modern twist on country chic is more like it). The straight traditional lines of the classic dining table are the perfect juxtaposition to the soft curves of the contemporary chairs.

1. Tobias Dining Chair in Blue at Ikea, $79 / 2. The Wood Liam Fixed Dining Table at World Market, $124.99

To all our minimalists out there we think this power combo adds a freshness to your typical modern aesthetic.

This duo is all about contrasting textures. These upholstered beauties really pop when set up against the deep wood base and tactile concrete top.

If your inner flower child is screaming for some attention, pay it some notice with this pairing of Liberty of London's groovy floral motif table and these oh-so natural rattan seats.

1. Normandy Side Chair at All Modern, $138.99 / 2. Jensen Dining Table at West Elm, $599

Quite possibly stolen off the set of "Mad Men", but these two are timeless—especially when residing together!

1. Rivera Side Chair at Serena & Lily, $228 / 2. Carlisle Cast-Top Balcony Table at Frontgate, $909

Some couples are just meant to be and that is definitely the case with these two Parisian classics that infuse a modernity into the classic bistro vibe.

1. Oshaughnessy Side Chair at Wayfair, $187.99 / 2. Compass Dining Table at CB2, $399

White on white with a touch of gold? Yes, please! These two have a lot in common even down to echoing one another's curves, but it's their slight style differences that really strike a chord.

1. Marlow II Wood Dining Chair at Crate & Barrel, $299 / 2. Elcor Dining Table at YLiving, $1,378

Simplicity is the name of the game with this pairing, but it's also the juxtaposition of traditional Americana chairs and a raw brutalist table.
