Recovering a Sofa and Chairs

Brigitte Fabric (FF016) thumb/image


I have two club chairs and a sofa that I will be recovering. For the club chairs, I would like to use either Dalia or Brigitte fabric by the yard. I was wondering if you could recommend several coordinating fabrics for both of these. I will need fabric for the body of the sofa, piping on it, and pillows. I will also need coordinating window treatments. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Just a sidenote … I have a 3-year-old, so the sofa fabric needs to be something pretty durable. Thanks!



We recommend the Brigitte Fabric for your club chairs. This pattern will complement the Brick Pomeroy or Petite Fleur de Lis (in Wheat) that we suggest for your sofa. Both have a textured print to help hide spills and stains.

Accent fabrics in Khaki or Butter Twill will pull it all together, and then you could punch it up with a pillow or two in our Light Cheetah.
