Commitment issues

So I have been trying to find a cool fabric to recover our kitchen table chairs for the past few months.  I came across this fabric a few months ago and yesterday I searched again and renewed my love for this pattern.

Now I love ikat, but I think it is a little overdone.  It incorporates so many great colors and mixes well, but I do feel like it is everywhere.  Yet I want something more exciting than a gingham, not as tradition as a solid color or even a stripe.  And I'm not in the mood for floral.  I think this pattern could be great!  I hesitate because right now our eating area is a blank canvas and I don't want to over commit with this color scheme.  Well, it's not like I'm getting a tattoo and this is part of decorating I suppose.  I have yet to reupholster anything yet in my home decorating experience (and by me I mean take it somewhere for them to do it), so this could be a fun first project. 

I like the red and blue pattern as well as the teal and orange.  The fabric is from Calico Corners and is from IMAN's Home fabric line.  What do you think?

  1. I love the subtle color combination of the last print - the light blue/seafoam color looks so pretty with the beige, and I think that it will be really livable and wear well. But all are fun!

    Also, FYI, Ballard has fabric by the yard to non to-the-trade at a nice price point:

    Love your blog!
