Here's a "blah" to "eye-catching" transformation. The owner of this chair wanted a new fabric to better match her colour scheme. The chair was still fairly new, so it needed no repairs, other than a few touch-ups to the wooden legs.
Notice that all the stripes match-up. They continue from the tops of the arms down the side panels, and they are matched on the back, pillow, and front (as well as down the back panel).
I like the curved bottom rails on the sides (a nice detail not used often enough on chairs).
