Here's the thing. I have this set of four chairs. I got them because we had no chairs when we moved into our apartment in December 2010. The chairs are not bad, really. As a matter of fact I think a lot of people like them; I like them too. BUT I have a feeling that my dining room is taking a turn for the worldly- eclectic thing instead of the shabby chic french thing. My dining set is VERY fransch (thats 'french' with an accent) shabby chic.
Should I redo the chairs in keeping with the french style and try to sell them all together as a set and start over from scratch? Or should I try to upholster them and make them more... current. My fear is if I try a bold pattern like ikat or chevron, they'll wind up looking puke-tastic. Like peppy le pew in a cowboy hat. Doesn't work. He's french. They don't do that. Also, funny story. These chairs have been repainted 2 times now( in 4 months) because I can't figure out what the heck I want to do with them. See? I am nuts. Seriously. Head problems over here, people.
My inspiration that tells me maybe, just maybe I can pull this crazy crap off :
|see? doesn' t that look so good?!|
I should note that I plan on upholstering the caned back too...
Here are some fabric choices I am considering:
Are we noticing a trend here? Textural but still soft.
What do you think? Honestly. But be nice to my poor muddled brain. I have no flippin' idea. I need help from all your fantastic designy-ness.
