My selections were the "Tucker" print (left) and the "Campbell" print (right), both beige and 100% cotton twill.
Selecting fabric that I won't regret a few months down the line is challenging for me. Sure, I may like a print on a 5" x 5" swatch, but imagining it covering a large area like a side chair is a different story...
Reflecting on the scale of the print and the shape of the chair, I was quickly convinced. While I liked the "Campbell" print (right), I worried that it was a little loud and modern. I wanted to find a fabric that balanced the mid-century lines of the chair with a more traditional and quirky pattern.
Hence...I'm going with Sister Parish's "Tucker" print:
I've never ordered fabric through a showroom before. Fingers crossed the chair is a show-stopper when it's completed!
