This is the first time I've seen this article!! I have a pretty floral Thomasville Chair and ottoman. I fell in love with the fabric as soon as I saw it! I chose the fabric because it had the exact same colors of my pink and blue (with a little bit of white) plaid queen sleeper sofa. I've had this furniture 24 years. It has survived six moves (two were long distance) and is still structurally sound! I'm considering having the pieces reupholstered. I know it's expensive, but I haven't been impressed with furniture I've seen except for the super expensive. The ottoman is on casters and I haven't seen that on the new stuff! Anyway, I want to do the sofa in a solid color and the chair/ottoman in a floral or print with the color of the sofa. I just started looking at fabrics.

What kind of rug will go with my new dining room chairs? The table is black and so are the chairs

Lisa, you'll probably want something with a simple or no pattern to avoid fighting the pattern in the chair seats. Picture nos. 1 & 3 are examples showing geometric patterns but in just one main color. Like those pictures show, choosing one color from the chair will ensure that the rug will look good with the chairs, but if you have an upholstery sample you can take with you, that would be helpful while shopping for the rug. If there are other design features in the room and nearby spaces, you'll probably want to keep those colors in mind as well.
