Anyhow, one thing I know for sure is that none of the fabrics I stared at for hours made the cut. I want it to be a fun piece of furniture so I am tempted to go with something a bit more light-hearted, like this Small Ikat Polka Dot fabric from Tonic Living.
Sarah Richardson used a similar fabric for barstools with dark wood legs and the combination totally worked, right? Sarah showed us how polka dot can be fun and tasteful at the same time.
What I particularly like about are the shades of greys vary with different lighting.
So what do you think of my latest fabric choice? Any other suggestions?
