I have the exact chair! I bought it from a lady in Westchester ,NY who was redecorating for ..$75. The English linen is very pricey, costing a few hundred dollars per yard.The Lee Jofa linen is called 'Althea', and I think the larger scaled version is called 'Hollyhock'?
Check on ebay for the fabric; I was able to find 8 yards for a very reasonable amount of money.

Stark seems to make a lot of nice rugs! I keep seeing a rug I like from pictures and it happens they are made by Stark! I live in Australia ... so it might be impossible to get them to make one for me and ship it?

Oh my goodness, you actually answered my question about the "chintz" chair and where can buy one! I assumed you knew I was teasing you, thus my wink smiley. Because I cannot believe how many times you have had to repeatedly answer this question! It's really something. So now I must compliment your patience as well as your work! Good luck, undoubtedly it will come up again! ;o]

Sometimes when a room is professionally photoed a color may look quite different than it actually is Thiis paint is a yellow with a gold base It could not be construed as a cream however once again I cannot find the paint color used on this job best advice if you are a do it yoursel is take the photo to a bm dealer and have them match it up for you you can always buy a small amount and try it out

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Reflection. Most traditional living rooms have a fireplace as a focal point, which works well with a mirror or painting hung over it. My preference is a mirror, as I love to see candlesticks on the mantel, and a mirror reflects that lovely candlelight beautifully. Pick up cheap secondhand candlesticks and use gold or silver spray paint for a great antique effect.
Love trumps all. Love is the cardinal guideline for buying antiques, and should trump all others. A piece may be of great quality, have an envious pedigree (“This bowl belonged to Marie Antoinette’s pastry chef!”), look beautiful, fit perfectly in the spot you have in mind and be a great bargain to boot. But if you’re buying it for your home and you don’t love it, what’s the point?
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to The Unexpected Color That Goes With Everything
… or very traditional shades of apricot and cream.
