Step 2 color options

For those of you that have followed me and my grandmothers vintage furniture, I have narrowed down some color options. It is my hope to go ahead and move forward this month with my choice in fabric. I went from patters to solids, and now is colors?







This stripe was the first thought ever when I though of keeping the furniture. Hmmm



THIS LINEN IS WHAT I THINK I WANT, THOUGHTS?



THIS SOFA IS THE CLOSEST I HAVE SEEN, COLOR?

Any thoughts on these colors? Yall dont give up on me...I'm sweating bullets here!

Hey girl - are you planning on keeping the wood as-is? What finish you are planning for the legs and all that beautiful wood-work would definitely help us vote for a fabric...although I am partial to that lovely cushy linen (#5 i think)...yum!

I love the idea of a stripe. It would definitely make a statement. I also love the fabric and frame finish in the first image - great looking piece!

I love the photos with the gray treated wood frames but you mentioned before not changing that.

If the wood is dark, I'd go with a lighter fabric to offset it. If you can, pick a fabric that has some stain protection in it.

i really like the look of the linen...but i've seen it done in...i think a velvet or brushed cotton that looks sooooo beautiful. i have a couple of photos - i'll send 'em to you so you have more ideas?

i love the classic look of the velvet. but i also love a soft velvet-like fabric on a sofa in that style. i can feel your pain, that's a hard decision because once it's done, it's done!
good luck

I know ivory can be scary, but I instantly saw an ivory (with stainguard protection of course) to highlight the gorgeous wood detail.

Otherwise, a soft pale grey velvet perhaps?
