What Houzz contributors are saying:
Plaid for formal, shapely furniture. Wool is usually appropriate for any traditional piece, and plaid is a go-to pattern. Because plaid can easily become overpowering, it’s usually used on smaller pieces, like love seats, chairs and pillows.The lines in plaid accentuate a sculptural form, particularly if the lines are wide and bold, like on this settee.
4. Plaid upholstery. Re-cover an old armchair, an ottoman or a love seat in classic wool plaid for a cozy look that begs you to sink in and sit awhile. Not interested in reupholstering? Fold and drape a plaid throw over the back and seat of your chair instead.
