This or That?


Pink Posy from Warm Biscuit

I am, unsurprisingly, still tooling about with my CHAIR. (I know I was originally thinking green but now I’ve moved on to pink??).  I am pretty sure I am going to pick between these two fabrics.  Which one is your fav?  The bottom one is not an upholstery weight which might be tricky but I’m told you can line the fabric and still work with it (has anyone done this?).  If you have seen anything else similar that I might like, do tell.  Here is the ROOM that my chair lives in.

    Definitely the top one in my opinion. The bottom is cute, but I think I’d get bored with it quicker.

    I think the top one, it’s lovely and more ‘classic’ looking. I think it would go better in your room. x

    I’m rather liking the bottom one – but unsure that lining the fabric will make it last as long as a proper upholstery fabric. Hmmm. Dilemmas.

    I love the first, but I think either would be lovely.

    I vote for the Amy Butler fabric. I think you will get a longer life out of in, in terms of style. Good luck.

    Take care,

    i agree that the top one is classic looking, and i think that's why i prefer the bottom one. isn't that what a chair is for? a splash of something other than classic–just maybe? if it were my chair, i'd want to put a black & white polka dot pillow on it.

    I love the top one–you can always paint the legs a bright color to update it converting it from classic traditional to classic modern. Both are truly lovely though!!

    Top one! I agree it’s a classic pattern but the pink color gives it a fun and modern edge. Love it.

    Hmmm, you cannot go wrong with pink. I like the top fabric best can’t wait to see what you decide on!

    Oooh…I just discovered Amy Butler (I realize I’m the last one) and LOVE her fabrics. But, I definitely for some reason am drawn to the bottom one here.

    I dont think you can go wrong with either one. They are both so pretty I really like the first one.

    I love the bright pops of colour in the second fabric. And I’m so in love with your chair! I can’t wait to see what fabric you pick.

    I love the first one. Have been looking at something similar for recovering chairs in my great room too!

    I have had my upholstery shop “line” my non-upholstery weight fabric. But, it is not actually a lining, it is a latex (or similar) coating that backs the fabric giving it the weight of an upholstery fabric. It will wear better, but still not as many “rubs” over the years as if you were to choose an upholstery weight.
    Both are gorgeous, by the way (2nd is very granny chic, 1st is much more contemp.)
    love your taste!
