This Des Moines dining room, designed by Liz Lidgett, proves you can mix and match furniture (including thrifted items) to create a sophisticated look.
The handmade table, crafted from wood from a local walnut farm belonging to the client’s father, sets the tone. Thrifted chairs—all slightly different—were reupholstered and match the table’s wood finish. “So unique,” Lidgett says. Other thrifted elements in the room include the chandelier, which Lidgett had painted.
Sheer breezy curtains incorporate the dark tones in the room and allow maximum light to shine through.
The centerpieces are another great mix-and-match, with collected vases brimming with blooms in whites, pinks and lavenders, and chartreuse. The sweet blooms are a perfect complement to the floral curtains.
