This beautiful fabric comes in several striking colorways

… but consideration must be given to the size of the pattern as it relates to the chair style. Fabric selection is a matter of personal taste & style. This pattern would have a very different presence on a simple dining seat or a futon cover than it does on this wing back chair.

Upholstery pattern matching can be a challenge on a wing back chair, and the result is a testament to the skill and attention to detail by the upholsterer.

CarlaHey there! I'm Carla Pyle. I love the stories that our furniture tells. For me a picture of my Granddaddy Milton's green upholstered arm chair brings to mind the vivid rhymes & colors of 'The Cat in the Hat' and his soft low voice in the telling. I love too that there is always an element of nature in furniture - the warm-toned curving grain of a walnut leg or the reflection of life in a mid-century chrome piece. The best part of teaching & sharing natural upholstery is that it ties all of these things together. Stories - of individual experience and of the planet - help us build happy & healthy homes.View all posts by Carla →
