Upholstery Choices for Grandmother's Rocker Makeover?

Q: I'm having my great-grandmother's rocker (larger photo below) reupholstered and am not sure what color and fabric will look best. It's quite sturdy, and I'd like to lighten its appearance a bit without using something that is going to show every stain. I'd also like something softer/cozier than leather, and I'm staying away from busy patterns because of the diamond tufting. Any thoughts on what might look nice?
