Any idea about fabric on this chair?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Clark found the stunning bookshelves for $20 each on Craigslist. A few coats of paint transformed them, and they add a great storage solution that almost looks built-in. Coffee table, couch, bookcase, chairs: Craigslist

• Search for terms in the home page search bar before going into furniture or collectible pages. This is particularly handy if you're just browsing for a particular style rather than a specific object. Going into the individual pages may mean you'll miss out on some things — there are plenty of great items that people have listed in the "Garden," "General" and "Free" sections.• Don't necessarily dismiss items because of bad photos — it doesn't mean the item isn't awesome.• Try several different words to find what your looking for. Many people use different descriptions. Your dream sideboard could also be a credenza or a buffet.• Try several variations of the words you're searching with. Include and exclude spaces, dashes and other punctuation marks. For example: "midcentury," "mid-century" and "mid century."

3. Hang art on your bookcase. A single framed work hung on a bookcase suddenly gives the entire room a new layer of sophistication, and it's easier to get right than you might think. Hold up potential prints, paintings or photographs to get a feel for the size that works best — there is no hard and fast rule, so go with what looks right to you. Most frames will look best when hung about two-thirds of the way up the bookcase, though with smaller pieces you might have more leeway.
Laura Gaskill added this to 12 Home Furnishings for People on the Move
9. Simple shelving units in multiples. You don't need to spend an arm and a leg on shelving unless you want to — just buy multiples of basic bookcases and line them up side by side for a custom look. You can personalize your shelves by adding a coat of color or patterned paper to the back wall, or by gluing grosgrain ribbon trim across the shelf fronts.

Great Idea because if you move you can either put them together or put them in different rooms if needed. Simple shelving units in multiples. You don't need to spend an arm and a leg on shelving unless you want to — just buy multiples of basic bookcases and line them up side by side for a custom look. You can personalize your shelves by adding a coat of color or patterned paper to the back wall, or by gluing grosgrain ribbon trim across the shelf fronts.
