The stars of this room are definitely the toile barrel-shaped chairs — the pattern pops against the modern mix of rich blues, black and white. The toile pattern is more traditional in style and features images in black on a white background. By upholstering these mod chairs in a classic toile, you create a cool mix of styles.
Tip: If you're considering reupholstering a chair with toile fabric, consider its shape. If the chair has many seams, you'll have to match up the scenery in the toile. That's much more difficult than reupholstering chairs such as these, on which the pattern simply covers one smooth side of the chair.
In a classic red-on-white color scheme, this traditional toile warms up a bathroom otherwise outfitted in modern amenities. The patterned curtains balance all the white subway tile and hardness of the bathroom fixtures to add some cozy to the space.
