So much fun updating my old red chair

Andrea, your chairs are a work of art! I love your interplay of color, pattern and texture - this work goes way beyond a restoration project and becomes a canvas for your creative ideas. I encourage those who are intrigued by Andrea's work to visit her Houzz page and browse the catalog photos:

Wow! Your chairs are exceptional. I'm planning on reupholstering 2 old, traditional Ethan Allen wing chairs in a bright fabric. I just bought a new slipcovered sofa with inverted seams. I'm not crazy about the casual feel of the seams on the sofa. What type of seam or welt would you recommend for the two chairs? I will probably use the same white sofa fabric on the front and cushion and the splashy red print to wrap the back (like your LuLu chair).
