New Upholstery Fabric for This Vintage Side Chair?

Good Questions

Q: I purchased this vintage side chair with the intention of painting the frame a fun color (teal) and reupholstering it in a neutral, printed fabric (pictured). However, since I've been living with the chair I've come to love the wood finish, which is in really good shape, and I'm no longer quite so sure about the fabric choice. So I'm wondering — should I move forward with my original idea of making this a statement piece or select another fabric or...? I have lots of colors and patterns in the room, so almost anything goes!
