How to provide an accent piece in a minimalist setting without stepping too far out of the neutral/natural color theme? Reupholster a vintage open arm chair in Elephant Ears fabric by Robert Allen with a neutral pallete of linen and grey! The large botanical pattern jumps right out from the rectilinear architectural elements in the room. The color ties back to the grey-ice walls.
The wooden parts of the chair were a colder brown than the door and chestnut trim, so we toned them a little warmer and laid down a light coat of satin lacquer to keep the color theme consistant. The fabric was a bold move, but seems at home in this revived farmhouse. Reupholstered and delivered to Mullica Hill, NJ.
