The Bold & the Beautiful: Decorating with Patterned Chairs

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Milo Baughman’s graphic chair in Photo 2 is the inspiration for today’s post. Graphically patterned chairs are fun and show a confident sense of style. They work great in small spaces as well as large ones, and the graphic pattern breaks up the monotony of solid shapes in the landscape of the room. The best way to get this look is to reupholster something you already own. You’ll be amazed by the transformation of grandma’s favorite chair. Reupholstering gives a lot of bang for the buck and adds instant style to any space. Read more for details.

Green Your Style:

All of the chairs featured above are vintage. Almost all of them have been reupholstered. Before trashing an old chair, try to see the diamond in the rough. Opt to have it reupholstered, rather than thrown out or donated. You’ll be amazed by the transformation of grandma’s favorite chair.
