Friends, I must admit that I am frozen in my tulip chair upholstery project. I was initially ALL about a patterned cushion. I thought it’d be the perfect little pop of fun amidst a sea of white. So I picked out a fabric that coordinated with my new danish chairs:
Seriously for a few weeks I was all about this blue and white combo.
I even went ahead and bought the fabric.
I suppose I was inspired by these…
But then I started to reevaluate.
My dream table looks something like this:
And this is now my official, Designer opinion:
I would never in a billion years recommend this to a client, so why am I pushing this on myself?
(The answer is I am incapable of passing up free/cheap deals on good furniture, irregardless of era or style which leaves me with a crazyperson collection.)
I’m thinking my patterned chair cushions would work if I stick with my curtain teak dining table. Which looks quite similar to this. Only imagine danish chairs at the ends.
And someday down the line, when I’m ready for my rustic dream table, it may mean its time to give the danish chairs back to Mom, and cushions need to be recovered in white.
(Reminder: Dream set up with fabulous funky arm chairs on ends)
So here’s the question…
Patterned cushions because I want them NOW?
White cushions because I now I’ll want them LATER?
Who am I kidding, I never know what I’m going to want later.
meanwhile, here’s some more pretties.
Two years ago I was all about ornate Louis XVI chairs, so it really cracks me up that now I lust after white plastic. Ah design. I love you and your little surprises.
