Dainty Chairs

I'm getting ready to upholster the seats of these dainty little chairs that came with the swedish furniture.
( Gosh! I seem to have a ton of projects to get too!!)
Anyway, I have a few stacks of upholstery fabrics for inspiration but nothing here is seeming to fit the chairs.
I love the old bluish grey coloring with the light details, so I don't plan to repaint.
Was thinking parchment or oatmeal or even this really pale pink I have...

but I also do love the red! I do seem to be drawn to it all the time!

So I put the red ticking and the red plaid in for some thought..
I know how fabulous the red would look with the gustavian grey...
oh my!
but I love the clean lines of the cream & pale pink too- something seems crisp and simple about them.
(I think that little guy in the background looks pretty happy with all the choices!)

I think I know which one I will go with... but any thoughts?

I'll get to work and share the finished product soon! :)


  1. I guess it would depend on where you will be using them. I'm sure any of them would look great but I'm liking the red ticking.
