Help! How do I decorate with these chairs without going overbaord on the red and blue Sign In/Join 
posted
So I got these chairs reupholstered and they did not turn out as well as I would've hoped. But they cost a lot and I can't have them re-done again. So I'm wondering how do I decorate my living room with these chairs. I'd like to add other colors in so that red and blue don't overwhelm the space. My couches will likely be brown leather. I'm thinking of adding some aqua and maybe a yellow hue with pillows, rugs, etc. Please help and add pics for inspiration if you can. Thanks Smile

Ok, I'll be the bad guy here. I'm speechless.
I don't have a clue what to say except have you thought about painting them??? I know, I know, it's mean but I can't see them with a brown couch.
Now that you hate me, try posting on the General Decorating board, gets a lot more traffic (and ideas) than this board which is about a show/posting site that may or may not exist anymore.
Again, I'm sorry, but I know how frustrating it is to have something that your lost about and on top of it having no one reply to your post.

Thank you so much. I posted on decorating board like you recommended. No, not going to try to paint them, I am going to try to sell them though. Thanks for your help! Smile

The ONLY think I can suggest is for you to put navy and red pillows on your brown couch and put the chairs across the room from the couch. I think you can carry it off....be careful of the drapes/curtains (maybe white) and the walls.

I'm sorry your chairs didn't turn out as you expected.....think I'd bite the bullet and slipcover them.
