Designing Around a Bold-Patterned Chair

Designing Around a Bold-Patterned Chair

I have a love affair with boldly patterned chairs. More playful than a pillow, not as dominating as a whole sofa, they're the perfect spark for my creative fire. The latest object of my affection is this chic, Southwest-inspired beauty. If money was no object, here's how I'd design a room around this pretty piece.

The Dale chair features a classic shape with a touch of flirty fun. I'd echo the pattern in a complimentary kilim rug and allude to the nailhead detail with metal accents. I'd keep it urban with a modern take on the chesterfield sofa, add a dose of rustic wood, and soften it with a few ruffles and curves.
