Chinese Chippendale Chairs | Real Time Progress - Fabric Selection

Hey! Today, I'm sharing another real time update for our Chinese Chippendale Chairs (see here and here to see our progress) Currently, I'm finalizing the fabric selection.. why my delay? I don't have a specific room in mind, so I want to make sure they are very versatile! It's hard to make a decision when I'm not looking at the other fabrics in the space!

Option 1. Charcoal velvet - I purchased this for another project, but I'm considering using it here .. I was originally thinking something lighter, but this is still definitely a possibility. 

Option 2 - Warsa Linen from Gray Lines Linen. I ordered a swatch card last week. I'm considering Oatmeal. (My other favorite swatches from the card are: Celander, Lime, New Turquoise, Jade, Fuchsia, and D. Grey) 

Option 3 - Metallic Linen from Gray Lines Linen. So many options, but ML 55, ML 56, ML 65, MM 40 caught my eye. 

So, have you used any of these? Do you have a favorite from here or elsewhere? I'll be deciding today!


  1. I'm liking the linen for these chairs (rather than velvet). The metallic linen is so fun and chic, so that gets my vote. ML 55 or 56 are my favorites!

  2. I'm all about the metallic linen! I like M65!

  3. oooh i love the linen for these- i think the metallic might take away from the beautify of the bamboo look itself. love the jade!!!

  4. I've used the Warsa and metallic linen a lot for curtain panels. If this was my chair, I would for sure do it in black and white stripe. Something about that classic combo that gets me every time. I'd use this - a cut velvet! I've had the swatch forever!

  5. Pretty pretty! I know whatever you choose will be perfect!

  6. I've used the warsa and love it but that that would be fun!


Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts! I love hearing what you think! :)
