Upholstery tips

I could do with a bit of advice.

My husband and I have 6 dining room tables that we love. The current upholstery however has seen better days. The colour is still fine, and it looks OK from a distance, but a closer look learns that it might be time to have them redone.  I myself am thinking of a velours or heavy cotton/wool type fabric with a rich texture in a light or maybe dark grey.

Then we have this antique arm chair. It came from my parents old house and they don’t have room for it in their apartment. I believe it used to belong to my late grandmother. We love the wood and style but are not too pleased with the colour of the fabric on the seat. I think a big floral pattern in maybe a heavy silk or rich cotton mix in blue/green/grey or, to match the red corduroy sofa, a red floral pattern would look great.

  2. blue green grey! Definitely! And please put in your will that I love it!
    btw, that would make grey a good option on your dining room set. They are lovely chairs, make it something that’s comfy. My mom actually has a rather nice combi of flowers and stripes that go together very well, maybe you could do a stripe or even a check on the chairs and matching flowers on your granny’s chair?
