Three of our editors give their old chairs an overhaul -- and learn a few valuable lessons along the way.
Finally I made a decision and chose to have a slipcover made for the chair (the store-bought ones never fit quite right). I wanted a relaxed look for the chair that just invited you to curl up in it.
As for a fabric, I opted for a linen (because linen just looks so good) in a darker shade to be more versatile. After reviewing a few swatches, I selected an Aubergine color because of its dark mocha shade with hints of purple, which created depth and interest in the color.
