Please Suggest Coordinating Fabric

Hubby loved these ikat patterned chairs, as well as these lamps. We also have a white couch. Since all pieces reside in the front room/ entry area, I need to coordinate these pieces. I cannot find the right fabric. (Note-the front door opens into the space). The chairs appear darker in real life. I have thought of white pillows. However, I hope to bring out blue in the chairs to coordinate them with the lamps. Suggestions?

I'd like to see you have pillows made using fabrics in one of the greens in the ikat, welted with the a blue fabric that matches the lamp. Stores like Calico Corners should be able to have the pillows made for you, using fabrics from their collections. Or you could find a seamstress to make them.

Yes, custom made pillows are my plan. I gave scoured the Internet, but have not found anything suitable. So, I ask, "Does anyone have any fabric suggestions?"

Since this fab chair has a certain style to it, I would use a vintage, antique lumbar pillow. Something that adds additional character to an already beautiful piece. A lumbar would also add another level of luxury and comfort. First choice would be a lumbar in the Italian animal print, second would be an aubusson using the same color way with antique trim. You could also throw a bit of contemporary with this mitered stripe pillow. If you can find an antique pillow of any good standing they go with anything. Scale would be very important when making your final choice.

Animal print of a quality fabric always works.

Hi! Here is an idea for you:

Love the chair & the lamp! What's it like to have a white sofa?! In my house, it would be covered in plastic or need weekly upholstery cleaning!

If looking for fabric for pillows for couch, go with any graphics with the colors in your chair, mixed with some plain fabric cushions in like colors. If looking for fabric for another chair being upholstered or for pillows for this chair, go with a solid (cobalt, gold or emerald). Bergen Street Residence;Hospital Home Lottery Fall 2012

How about taking 2 colors from you chair and put one color in a band down the center of the pillow and the 2nd color on the outside edges? This would look crisp and clean.
