Pink bergere chairs and a black and white upholstered sofa live up to the turquoise walls. The abundance of white in the room balances all this brilliant color and pattern.
Selecting a print and coordinating solid to upholster a piece of furniture can also be understated. Here golden yellow mixed with a stripe creates a sophisticated mix that enhances this design perfectly.
Now what ideabook about boldly upholstered furniture could leave out this image? A brilliant tone of turquoise velvet and fuchsia accents is a choice few would probably make, but in the right setting going ultra bold can be remarkable.
Chairs covered in a black and white Moroccan-inspired print is successfully mixed with a smaller-scale patterned rug and neutral sofas.
Tip: When bringing multiple patterns into a design, vary the scale of the prints.
Now here is an example of how selecting a print to cover a piece of furniture can define a room. A large vintage sectional upholstered in a medium-scale print works in large part due to the colors relating and blending in so well to its surroundings. Interestingly, the pattern seen on the fireplace wall seems to mirror the pattern in the fabric!
This remarkable living room is one of my favorite seen on Houzz. Two vintage chairs covered with a lively zigzag print adds a great element of style and surprise to the design.
Which of these patterned upholstery pieces would you welcome into your home?
