If you are planning to buy a pair of these chairs and you want to know how you can style them, here are some great suggestions you can try. 

Change the Color of the Cushion 

You don’t have to go crazy with changing how this chair looks. After all, it is a very iconic chair and classics such as these do not have to be transformed much. If you still want to keep the minimal look why not get a different colored cushion for the bertoia chair? Instead of the black cushion, why not change it to red or teal? If you are following a color scheme for your interiors, just choose one of the accent colors so that it would still look good and blend with the rest of the furniture in the house. 

Match with Other Industrial Furniture

If you are going for an industrial design to your house, this chair would be the perfect fit. You can pair it with other furniture falling under this theme, such as shelves or even tables. 

Repaint into a Bright Color

This may sound controversial but if you are willing to take the risk, why not repaint your Bertoia chair? If your personality is fun and bright, you’d probably want your furniture to represent who you are as a person. Naturally, you might not go for black or gray as your colors. The Bertoia chair can be painted easily as the structure of the chair is quite simple. Of course, you will need to make sure that you know what you are doing. Choose a paint that will match your interior decorating and work well with the material the chair is made out of. And make sure to paint every book and cranny. The pattern of the back of the chair might prove difficult for some. Just be patient and you can finish it in no time. 

Pair with Vintage Furniture

Even though this chair falls under the industrial style, that does not mean that it would not go well with the Bertoia chair. But it would look just as good in a French cottage as it would on an industrial home. The key is to achieve the right balance in the combination. If you feel that the structure of the chair is too rigid for your shabby chic room you can easily soften it up by adding a pastel-colored cushion or even draping a wrap or scarf over it. The little details can make a big difference in the overall look. 

Mix and Match with Other Chairs

Who says that you need all the chairs in the area to match? Gone are the days when that is the norm and the standard. Nowadays, you can get different styled chairs to mix and match them. This is where you can really get creative. Don’t be afraid to look for chairs that seem to come from different eras. As long as they are tasteful, they will match very well with this chair.
