Classic or Bold Upholstery on Quality Vintage Settee?

Good Questions

Q: I purchased a settee for $50 from a local used/antique furniture store, and my mom and I are endeavoring to do our first real reupholstery job. In disassembling the piece we realized it is better quality and much more valuable than anticipated. We had planned to cover it in some bold fabric to make a real statement piece, but now we are wondering if such a nice piece should be done in something more classic and true to the original style. As I am in no permanent residence, I'll be able to fit it into my future dwelling no matter what we make it look like. What do you think — classic or bold?
