Fresh Ideas: Patterned Upholstery

When designing a space, I enjoy incorporating at least one special piece (usually a chair or ottoman) that's upholstered in a large-scale patterned fabric. I have yet to do an entire sofa in anything but a solid, but would love to one day! Introducing a patterned upholstered piece into a space is a great way to add color, texture and interest. I think the key to picking out the fabric is to keep the scale large...anything too small will get lost and lose impact. Do you have any fun upholstered pieces in your home? *** I'm off to pack and ship the rest of the orders sold in my One King's Lane sale - it was a huge success (there's still one day left to shop)! Have a fantastic weekend! xoxo - Julie

  2. So pretty! I have a small loveseat in the bedroom that I'm thinking of having reupholstered, but it's a pretty involved piece (lots of folds/ridge-like things?). Is there a good pattern for a piece like this, or should I stick to solids?
