Should Kitchen Table match Kitchen Cabinets


I need help! My kitchen is a cognac / brandy colour and I am purchasing a new kitchen table and chairs but I do not want the table the same colour as the kitchen. I wanted to go with a country walnut colour as this is a similar colour to the rest of my floors and furniture but it is quite a bit darker than the kitchen with no orangy undertones. Will this look good if the kitchen does not match the table? Also, I wanted to get leather parson chairs but again am having trouble deciding on the colour. I dont want to go with a brown leather chair as I will be introducing a third brown colour into the kitchen and I feel it wont look right. I wanted to go with black parson chairs but am afraid it might be too heavy / dark looking. The walls are painted very light linen colour and the backsplash is cream. What do you think???? I need to make a decision fast. I am attaching a picture, hopefully you can see it.

True, but I am not sure if it will look good. I'm spending alot of money as the table is solid wood and chairs are leather so I want to make the right decision and am not the best at decorating / colour schemes. Any advice would be appreciated from those that are good at this. Thanks!

Gorgeous kitchen...I have the same color cabs and floor as you do.
I did a walnut table and chairs for contrast. It looks nice; I wanted
contrast...I love that it doesn't match.
I can show you a pic or two.

Well, our kitchen is a galley kitchen, it's a total DIY kitchen. I
designed it to look like a shake / arts and crafts kitchen. The cabs are
QS white oak stained medium.

The walnut table and chairs, as you can see are a lot darker.
We also made a walnut bird cage for our love bird.
I think if we would have made the table and chairs in the same color as
the cabs it would have been ho hum....

You're welcome, that's my problem in decorating and designing
things we want to built. I need a lot of visual aids.

It looks like a big place, so will the kitchen dining area be a fairly separate area? I've never thought of a dining area as needing to match the kitchen. One thing that helps me is to get the furniture catalogs from nice furniture companies that have many unique areas of furniture or are online. Like 18th century American vs Tropical, vs Colonial Country vs French Country, vs Swedish Modern. Your kitchens are beautiful, btw. etc.

I also never thought dining area as needing to match the kitchen and the two rooms of mine are quite different from each other.But from the pics,it seems really great if the color of dining room is similar with the color of kitchen room.

I am sorry but matching kitchen furniture to match cabinets is overboard. I have never been in a house that had a matching dining room set or kitchen set that matched the cabinets.
