I'm planning to use these at the ends of the table in my dining room redo. I'm 99% sure that I'm going to paint the frame black, and I probably won't put any tufting in the cushions. I've been thinking all along about using a canvas drop cloth to do the upholstery, but lately I've been drawn to the idea of doing something fun that will really make a statement.
My table will be a dark stain and I'm not sure what I'm doing for the side chairs. I've been searching on CL for months but haven't found anything yet.
Soooooo, here are some fun fabrics that I found while browsing the web. I'm really loving my black and white drapery so I thought I might pull that into the dining room (it's all open together with the living room).
Larger scale zebra-
These 2 chevron prints are large scale-
Large scale ikat-I'm planning to make some pillows from this soon but thought it might also look really cool on the chairs. Go here to see a fantastic project with this fabric, and the pictures will give you a good idea of the size.
One other choice-go ahead with the dropcloth and make
some punchy pillows to set in these chairs.
Thoughts? Have you seen something I didn't include that you think I should consider?
I'd love some feedback on this one!
