Upholstery Suggestions for Craigslist Find?

Good Questions

Q: I just bought this chair on Craigslist (with a matching footstool) for $25! My house is a 1958 California ranch, and while I am not crazy about going all modern, some pieces really do fit best. The lines on this chair look simple enough that I plan to recover it myself. I am not wedded to a color for this, as my furniture is all being rehabbed. I am thinking a deep red or blue, maybe, nothing too patterny, but all color suggestions are appreciated.

Pin it button big

Also, I plan to stay away from anything very light (we're working with a black dog, a child, a cat, and a coffee spilling disorder).
