I bought another Victorian armchair for my sitting room and had it upholstered in the same crushed velvet as the sofa, but this time in two colours: mustard and grey velvets. The piping, back and sides are grey and the rest is mustard. It looks stunning with the curtain fabric behind.
This chair below was given to me by a friend and we think it is an old Dutch chair. I had it covered in mustard linen on the back and the seat part is actually the reverse of a striped fabric!
