chair covering crisis

This weekend i am going to make a decision on chair fabric, once and for all. Seriously. Last year i was dithering over which fabric to re-cover my ebay bargain danish chairs and still am dithering! The rest of the room is white & brown, 2 totally different looks and I just KEEP changing my mind, at the moment i'm thinking fabric option 1... i think.

chair fabric now (yuk)



fabric option 1
retro flower fabric from kalenastudio on etsy
.


fabric option 2
original vintage curtain fabric from mum & dads house

(fabric only looks deformed and bulky as just draped over chair)
.

Of course my inspiration comes from Orla Kiely and also the lovely Bobble's chairs below...

The first fabric is my favorite. The blues and yellow contrast the wood nicely.

hey! i have some very similar chairs (plus table) that i inherited from a great aunt. they are covered in white vinyl (i don't think it is leather???), and i am still crazy for them many years later.

Depends on the room of course but i definitely prefer alt 1. But a nice chair like that would look good in almost anything.

Give me a year and hopefully I'll be doing the same to my dining chairs, at the moment they are dark olive green vinyl.
Nice fabric!
