I love when a very traditional or fancy chair is upholstered in a very untraditional fabric. This is a great way to get your french bergere in your bohemian living room or a Louis chair in your mid-century bedroom. If you have a shape of chair that is interesting to you, don't cast it aside because it does not go with the rest of your room. Design these days is all about mixing time periods and styles. Most people have a fabric that they like, but are too hesitant to use in a large quantity and a chair is a perfect medium for that, more bold than a pillow. This can also be inexpensive if you find a chair at a garage sale or on Craigslist and cover it in the tablecloth you brought back from India (or Iowa).
