6 Chair Looks that Say WOW! Interior Decorating & Fabrics

Interior Decor & Upholstery Fabric Collections by Stuart Graham Cape Town

Whatever the shape or size, there’s so much you can do with a good chair to make it a bold feature in a room. Perhaps you have a grand old dame and she just needs a new outfit. Or you’re ready to scour the second-hand shops for a project. Good bones make a big difference, however it doesn’t have to be a classic beauty designed by Eames or Corbusier for your chair to be a showstopper. Read on for chair upholstery designs and fabric to ensure your statement chair really does make a statement. See our services and tips for interior decor and upholstery fabric at Global Fabrics here.

1. VELVET SAYS SUBLIME

The intricate detail of a clam shell chair is perfectly complimented by sumptuous fabric and designs such as Simba poly-velvet. The lustre of velvet pile highlights shapely curves and so works well with almost every style of chair. Simba is a very versatile fabric: use it for your lounge suite sofas, curtains and scatter cushions — perhaps not all in one go! Paired here with curtains and scatters from the Phoenix collection, velvet looks classy and timeless.

2. DYNAMITE IN SMALL PACKAGES

Your chair fabric and design needn’t be large to make a statement. An eye-catching print in punchy colours such as this one from the Stuart Graham Cape Town Tahiti upholstery Collection can have just as much wow-factor. If Tahiti doesn’t suit your style, there are some jaw dropping prints in the Plantation Collection. Both chair fabrics are all-purpose, suitable for upholstery, curtain fabric and home furnishing accessories.

3. A QUIET STATEMENT – INTERIOR DECOR

A window seat is just the place for a little quiet time with a book — or your Kindle — but it can still make a statement. Keep the colours cool and neutral and add a little interest with textured scatters to create a calm space that unequivocally says “Me time!”

4. NOBODY PUTS BABY IN A CORNER

Unexpected colours catch the eye. Such as this moonlight grey with its purple undertones. Think about your chair’s legs and the colour and texture of the floor – choosing complimentary colours will make a dark corner pop! Then just add accessories in prints such as these from the Terrace Collection with soft tones for a stylish yet welcoming look.

5. SIZE MAKES EVERYONE LOOK TWICE

Super-sized florals are all the rage, but how about these giant butterflies to bring garden freshness indoors! The Mardi Gras Collection has a range of BOLD prints suitable for all home furnishings, from upholstery to curtaining. Pair them with plains in punchy jewel colours for added pop.
