Matchy Matchy is Dead

Discover your true style.


The number one problem that we see day in and day out is the idea that everything has to be matched. Consumers have this old belief that all wood tones need to match, metals, colours and style all need to be the same in the room.

The truth is that look is outdated.


To update your home, break up your matching pieces, repurpose them in different rooms and place furniture in different configurations. This picture is a perfect example of what is possible when you break up the matching sets and play.

The large sofa is the anchor of the room. Artwork is large and fills the space. Metals, wood, collections, fun pieces are filling this room. The pillows do not even match on the sofa.


This room is a perfect example of how wonderfully welcoming and interesting it is to break away from the matchy match look.


Talk to your Smitty's Sales Consultant and Interior Decorators to help you achieve a look that is all you. It is easier than you think.
