What Houzz contributors are saying:
Some designers also consider polka dots to be in the category of neutral patterns, with a repeating shape so simple that it reads as more of a texture. The round lines add an extra sense of softness, which can feel a bit feminine or romantic and make a space welcoming.
1. Elegant fabric. Choose a luxurious fabric like Robert Allen’s Velvet Geo for a refined polka-dot look. The other classical pieces in this room, including a crystal chandelier, custom silk drapes and traditional artwork, allow the velvet-dotted dining chairs to add a contemporary energy without taking away from the sophistication of the room.
A great mixer. Polka dots are like cranberry juice: great on their own, but even better when mixed with other ingredients.In this dining room, intricate trellis wallpaper pairs with dining chairs upholstered in a fetching polka dot print. The circles don’t compete with the lines of the trellis, so the dissimilar elements work together. In general, polka dots mix well with graphic patterns, such as stripes and plaids, as well as sinuous florals.
