This is originally mid-century modern decor trend but now it’s back and it helps to make furniture non-boring. Here are some ideas that may inspire you.

Mixed Upholstery Chairs

Mixed upholstery is a great and chic way to make a modern and bold statement in your space – with color and pattern of your choice. You can make it more matching or totally different – in some unique colors and prints that aren’t used in decor, so it will be your statement, such options are very popular now. You may rock one fabric for the seat and another for the back, or even try different fabric for the back, seat and armrests to make it all bold and outstanding. If you don’t feel like buying, go make some chairs like these ones and add a proper footrest with some mixed upholstery. Renovate a vintage chair with super modern fabric to make it look wow!

Other Furniture With Mixed Upholstery

Some other pieces that look amazing with mixed upholstery are benches and sofas. The idea here is the same: cover the back with one type of fabric and the seat with another, and as for armrests, you may go for the same fabric as for the seat or even some third kind of fabric. If you feel lazy to craft such a piece, look for some ready items, for example, Anthropologie sofas, there are such gorgeous items among them.
