Best Fabric for Reupholstering Vintage Dining Chairs?

Good Questions

Q: Hello! I just purchased this pair of mid-century dining chairs on Craigslist and am hoping to get some advice from the wise Apartment Therapy readers before reupholstering the seats. Any fabric ideas? I am going to refinish the wood with a darker stain to match my table. What type of fabric is best to use for seats that will get a lot of wear and tear?
