After deciding we didn't really want that expensive chair and ottoman, I finally realized that I had a leather chair in the den that sees no action. Craig was out of town, so I decided to do some furniture moving by myself. My back's still hurting! I'm not a fan of matchy matchy decorating, so I decided it'd be perfect to just have a slipcover made for the existing ottoman to make the chair comfortable for Craig and help tie the leather chair to the existing leather and sage green sofas in the room.
I immediately noticed this fabric. It pulls the chocolate colors of the leather and green from the other sofa.
I think this is a faux leather fabric, but I love the basket weave look. I may need to make a pillow or mat out of this!
I also found this leaf-patterned fabric. It also pulls the green and chocolate colors from the two sofas.
Decisions, decisions. Craig and I both like this stripe/tweedy looking fabric. Now I just need to find someone to make the slipcover and get an estimate on how much fabric to buy. I'll definitely buy some extra so I can make a couple of pillows for the older leather sofa.
When it's all done, I'm curious to see how much money I'll have saved. And I'll owe it all to the silly man who lost a sale because he got stingy with his pillows. He gave me the extra time to realize I could make do with what I had!
