What Color/Fabric for Vintage Chairs?

Good Questions

Q: I was given these red chairs (I have two of them) from my grandmother and love them. I'm hoping to incorporate them into my living room. Are there any recommendations for a kind of fabric/color that will help them fit better with the style of the room? I'm leaning toward reupholstering them in yellow, though I don't want things to get too matchy-matchy! Thank you!
