Before and After for those of you who asked. . .

Luv RomanticSeptember 23, 2013
Here are the chairs and the fabric I decided to go with.

It is a heavy ivory silk with beautiful slubbing(not sure if you can tell in the picture). While I am not married to the fabric I do love it. Especially how it ties in with the colors of my living room.

I am prepared for the naysayers and those who will say "I like the before better." ;-)

They were very easy to redo and if someone can give me an example that you think would work better, I'm open to suggestions.

I do want it to tie in with the LR which is where the pictures were taken. So you see the colors and style I like.

Thanks! :-)

They are perfect with the funky rug...which you now absolutely MUST keep! Luv Romantic, don't listen to naysayers. You have great style and it's all your own.

Thanks! I was so nervous to post. I didn't think they would get a kind reception. :-)I do plan on keeping the rug for sure and actually was able to return the Blue Trellis. :-0

I am now looking and think I have found a rug for my dining area with the same colors only striped.

Just hope it stays on sale while I am waiting to get the funds to purchase. :-)

I think you picked great colors…and only because I started looking around did I come up with another…just ‘cause I like the golden yellow living room chairs with your rug.

I am not suggesting that you change, just that it is such a fun rug it makes me want to “shop”.

Iplay10s has a great suggestion to tie the yellow from the LR into the dining room with the fab table and chairs!! Also love your quirky LR rug!

That fabric looks very nice & you did a great job on the chairs! The lighter color makes the wood stand out too. I really expected something super wild for the way you were worrying over them. :) We're just here for advice & what really matters is that you are happy!

Thanks everyone!

@Keitha, I actually have two guest chairs that are on either side of my buffet that I redid in Mustard Microsuede.

But I do like that material and am now thinking of redoing those chairs with the yellow trellis.

Because I HEART pattern! ;-)

@iplays10s, OK so I went to the website for that fabric to purchase for my two guest chairs and it is no longer available. :-(

Luv Romantic, the chairs look great and I love your style. You have my favourite sofa.....not just on Houzz, but anywhere! Do you know the manufacturer? It's exactly what I'm looking for and I really love the way it looks with all your other furnishings, including these new dining room chairs.

@lori Thanks! The manufacturer is Kunzleman-Esser. I found it on CL and the previous owner said it was 15 years old. So I am not sure they still make them or even if they are still in business.

But if you search for Barrel Sofa's/couch online, many that are very similar will pop up.

Thank you so much, Luv Romantic, that's a big help. I won't be able to shop for furniture until after the holidays, but now I know what search for. Thanks again!
