Sorry for delay. Yes and yes. 3 Park Tribal Thread Azure Here's a link: http://www.onlinefabricstore.net/3-park-tribal-thread-azure-fabric-.htm I love the way the pattern is centered on the chair. The homeowner did a great job with Ben's help!

I'm not sure exactly about the wallpaper. You can check with the interior Designer Benjamin Dhong here on Houzz. Best of luck to you!

You might check with the interior designer, Benjamin Dhong. You can find him here on Houzz. I think the owner found the fabric (blue and white pattern) at Calico Corners. Best! Leigha

I design custom chairs like this using original suzani embroideries and have several beautiful blue and white patterns like the one on this chair. Can make you something very similar! Marika Mill Valley

I believe it's 24" http://www.circalighting.com/details.aspx?pid=2222 but you can double check with the interior designer, Benjamin Dhong. Two 15"s for 92" sounds about right. Hope that helps!

Dining Room Armoire - I have a suggestion. Paint the armoire exterior a light color and the interior a yellow or blue to match the surrounding.

I love this house too! Especially the suzani chairs! I am not sure where that door leads... Maybe a basement or dark bedroom?

It's actually a home office, but it was not in presentable condition for the photo, so we darkened it. (:

Hello! I think this site is about either home-owners sharing their design selections, or professionals who are willing to do the same. Not a site for designers to "drum" up business.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Zoning regulations prohibited a picture window that Heydt had originally planned for the wall where the hutch is, so interior designer Benjamin Dhong came up with the idea of the blue and white accent wall. "It was a fantastic alternative as a desperately needed focal point," says Heydt.Dining room pendant: Goodman Hanging Lamp by Thomas O'Brien
Vanessa Brunner added this to 25 Most Bookmarked Houzz Tours of 2012
16. A Family Home Grows and Gets a New FaceThe soft palette and elegant interior of this Northern California home made it seem livable but refined to Houzz readers. The clients, a growing family, bought this home with the intention of updating its style and adding to its square footage. The architectural updates and light-filled spaces made each of the rooms a treat to see.
A brash move. An unusual blue suzani pattern covers this open-arm chair, making it look like a piece of Chinese porcelain brightening a sideboard.

A judiciously placed pattern can make all the difference in a room. Whether it’s a chair, an ottoman or a beautifully inlaid chest, patterned furniture can add a spark that totally transforms a space. Pattern doesn’t have to come from upholstery, although oftentimes it does. A racy ottoman in a bold print could be a great starting point. Once you get accustomed to using pattern, you’ll feel confident enough to explore long-term pieces, like cabinetry and maybe even doors upholstered in zebra hide!
