Good Questions: Upholstering Aluminum Chairs?

I have acquired some old office chairs that are similar to Emeco aluminum Navy Chairs except they have a upholstered seat. I want to re-upholster them but was wondering should I stick with a vinyl seat? fabric? what color? Thanks, Melinda

We think they'd look great in a cherry red vinyl — or maybe an oilcloth with a pattern? It is also possible that the current upholstery can be removed entirely...Anyone?
