Need your fabric help: My Craigslist find!

Over the weekend I scored these fabulous faux bamboo chairs off craigslist for 20.00 each( I scored two!)
They are in great shape, but obviously will be painted since lavender isn't exactly a color I wish to incorporate into my home.

I haven't decided if they are going to be high gloss black or white yet, I think it depends on what fabric I decided

My current options are:

There are a few I like from Premier Prints

Chipper in black or gray

Tunisia in lime green

I also like this Waverly Cross Section in Charcoal

And am really drawn to the Robert Allen Lake Paradise

in Spa

or midnight

but I feel like it may be a little too much with the faux bamboo.

I think I am leaning towards the Waverly or the Togo, but I just don't know.
What do you think? Or have any other fabulous fabric options I can look at??


  1. I like the Waverly as well!

  2. i like the 2nd one posted with white glossy!

    i CANT believe you got those for 20 bucks, so dang lucky

  3. I do like the Tunisia, but I do love brightly covered chairs, seems to give any room a nice pop of color. :) So jealous of your awesome finds!!! Gotta love Craigslist!

  4. Love the chipper, togo and the waverly ! Such a great find.


  5. Chipper in gray is gorgeous! And with high gloss white, those suckers will look like top of the line furniture!

    What great finds! I need to hone my Craigslist skills apparently!

  6. I think the waverly with high gloss black would be gorgeous and could go with many things without you getting tired of them!

  7. These are incredible chairs for a steal! Lucky you! Before I saw your fabrics, I had in my mind some of Premiere's. I love Togo, with a black gloss frame, these could be so chic and transitional with your interiors. I can't wait to see how they turn out, keep us posted!!!!

  8. omgggg keep the lavender! It's so fresh and chic! I say Chipper in grey or Waverly. You should totally do the Waverly in a neon color, like white high gloss bamboo with neon green fabric. Think abt it!

  9. Hi, great chairs!!! i love Chipper in both black and gray but I think I would finally go with black lacquered chairs with the gray print. Congratulations on the find!
