So let's switch them around and put the other two behind the sofa. The lower one is another awning stripe that brings an olivey green in to the mix (impossible to see in the photo) and the other one is is an unbleached muslin with black velvet curves. It's definitely more modern and not as safe. It's my favorite out of these two. So let's take a look at my favorite two a little closer.
When I went back to the store, I saw a woman standing in front of my table and I overheard the salesperson saying that she could take 20 percent off. But then the woman left. So I said to the salesperson, "I'm interested in this table." Her jaw kind of dropped and she said "Well, that woman just went home to measure and see if it would fit in her den."
And I wanted to do something like this on the other side of the room. The stripe in the material sort of emulates the striped wallpaper but it's a different feel. So I don't think so.
I could see the room above having blinds in this fabric; in fact, the curves kind of remind me of the deer atlers that WON'T be finding a place in my living room so this pattern could create the Bambi-free version of the room.
Here's a same fabric behind the chair with a different "hobnail" table that was originally in the room. The color of this table works better but I still don't know about the fabric. I had friend come over and I asked for an opinion. "ANYTHING BUT THIS ONE!"
So I haven't ruled the velvet curves out but I think I need to go back for another try. I think I'd like to try something with a little color this time.
