Mix and Match Fabrics: Simply Sumptuous Seating!


Yesterday I met my friend Becky for lunch and afterwards we strolled through an amazing little store called “Best Seat In The House” in Dallas, Texas. (If you’re local you should definitely check it out!) It’s chock full of unique, creative pieces not the least of which was their wonderful seating.  I loved all their case goods, lighting and accessories, but I especially liked the cozy, squishy sofas and chairs.


Almost every piece of seating there was constructed of a mish-mash of fun, plush fabrics. And each one had an inviting allure to them – like they were wooing us in to cozy up for  “tea and crumpets” or something.  At least that’s what we found ourselves wanting to do!


I think I counted seven fabrics on this cozy, little chair.


A floral sofa….mixed with a multitude of other fabrics (which helps to anchor the piece and tone down the floral)……feminine and fun!  And with the frame in more subdued, less patterned fabrics, the cushion can always be recovered for a new look if you decided you grew tired of such a bold floral.


Love this leather/fabric combo……


Paired with these nail heads.


Not sure how many fabrics they used on this one, but isn’t it fabulous?!



And, how ‘bout his beautiful damask back….


With this velvet front and arms and this floral cushion – gorgeous.  The damask, you’ll notice, is repeated in the pillow.


This gorgeous floral front…..


With this velvet back……so charming!


If you’re having trouble deciding which fabrics you like best – why not have some fun, get creative and just use ‘em all!!?

Happy Decorating!!!
