I bought this fabric at Mood with my mother about three years ago when I lived in New York, remember that? HA! It feels like a dream I once had, even though I can still give pretty precise directions for some areas of the city. Anyway.
Do you think it is too traditional for this style of chair? The fabric is basic linen, very textural, nice. I would have double piping all over, except along the bottom, where there would be nail head trim.
Update: The very evening I took these images, I was despairing over what fabric to use for these chairs. (I do realize they are just chairs, just saying.) I went online to one of my favorite places just to have a peek, and was oogling my favorite pattern, completely beyond my means! Poo, but I told myself no worries, something will come along, you just have to go with the flow. The next morning I saw the very.same.fabric for sale on a blog I frequent for a third of the price, exactly the amount I wanted, in the exact print I would have chosen...um hello, meant to be. I couldn't believe it. So, I bought it. I ended up spending the money I saved to have the labor done, so I have to re-save, but it is worth it. I will have to surprise you.
