i have a Queen Anne Sofa and Chair that need updating
June 12, 2013
I have a Queen Anne sofa and matching chair. I need to update the upholstery. Do the chair and sofa have to match??? I can't decide on a pattern for either. Help!!!!I am looking for brown/beige patterns, etc.

No, absolutely do not have to match. Better if they don't in my opinion. Obviously, solid fabrics go with any other pattern and this may be your most practical option for the sofa. Getting a neutral textured fabric allows for other furniture to be more playful or colorful - and not as expensive to reupholster or replace down the road. You like brown/beige but try to add a bit of color in a patterned fabric for the chair for more interest.

I like PH Interiors suggestion to stay with neutral fabrics and if you wanted to update the style a little further darken any exposed wood to an espresso finish.

Thanks to both of you. I like the ideas. The room is red, and has a Persian rug with red as the main color. I think pillows will be able to be the source of interest.

Ditto, a solid color on the sofa and a pattern on the chairs.
