Remember these chairs? Yup, they’re still waiting to be reupholstered.Â I finally decided to put them in the dining room and I wanted to lighten things up in there so I had been thinking white faux ostrich leather.
But sometimes a funny thing happens when you take forever to start on these projects.
They actually start to look good in their current state. For example, I just love these brass chairs with black suede/velvet upholstery.
Also, the black actually looks really good with the chairs in the dining room because of the black stripe in them:
(I’m mixing the chairs around a dark wooden table.)
The other color I’m considering is a rust like this:
The color scheme of the dining room would then be something like this:
The walls are a similar color. These are also the colors I’m using in the living room. (In case you didn’t know, this house is Billy Joel’s ex-wife Katie Lee Joel’s West Village Townhouse that recently sold for $11.65 million. You can read all about that here. Say what you will about her but the house is gorgeous!)
So what do you all think? Black or rust? (Even if I leave them black, I will reupholster them since the fabric is partially faded.)
