Good Question: Upholstery Remedy for This Chair Duo?

Dear AT & Readers: My mum graciously gave me a set of two overstuffed reading chairs with matching ottomans about a year ago. I've never liked the fabric they're covered in but can't make up my mind as to how to remedy them. If they were more delicate I'd have a better idea of what fabric and pattern to go for, but as is I'm totally clueless. Could you and your lovely readers give me any advice?...

They can match or be totally different...I'm up for anything! I just need the seating but hate them as they are now. I've included a picture of one of the offenders — it has an evil twin! Thanks so much! Amanda

We think these chairs have pretty good bones and, with the right fabric, could really make for a stunning pair. We're imagining a pattern that's light and open but with a punch of color. Any specific fabric suggestions from the crowd?
