Can two different upholstered chairs be covered in the same fabric?
January 6, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I fell in love with the fabric on these chairs Unfortunately, they are not comfortable at all. I found another style chair that can be upholstered in the same fabric. I'm wondering if I can get the different style chair upholstered in the same fabric, or if I should go with a constrasting fabric. I would be replacing the chair in the foreground with a chair with a similar shape , but with arms. Thanks!

Just to clarify, are the chairs with the peacock pattern being replaced? Is the curved yellow/ green (on my monitor) piece a love seat? If you are only replacing one patterned chair then I believe you could have two different chair styles with the same pattern. Another option is to use a different pattern but similar color tone as the peacock chair.

I suggest: removing all the wall decor on the t v wall; moving the t v to the center of the wall; place each chair on either side with one mirror above each chair.

Make the sofa more user friendly and buy an upholstered ottoman to put your feet on.

Agree about wall items. Before going to alot of expense, can you get an upholsterer in and ask him to quote on changing the foam/down on the 2peacock chairs to make them more comfortable?

Thanks- I agree that centering the chairs would look better, however, it is a small room, and one chair needs to be able to view the TV- The sofa is a full size sofa ("conversation sofa" with curved arms). I am planning to replace one of the "peacock chairs" with a more comfortable style. Jill J- thanks for your comment about having the same fabric on two different style chairs, as that's the way I'm leaning.
