Union Jack Chair

First, thank you to everyone who left comments with their opinions on this chair I posted about yesterday. It helped me realize I didn't like any of the options enough to change it. One comment in particular pointed out something that I didn't even realize: there's a lot of caning and it needs a pillow on the back to break up the caning.

Jaime pointed this out to me and she was so right! So I decided to head to Home Goods this morning to look for a pillow to inspire me, and then I'd decide on fabric. Does Home Goods ever let me down? Nope!

I picked up this pillow and I already had the perfect, understated fabric to go with it. Best of all, whoever buys this chair, can use this pillow or completely change the decor by changing the pillow. Love it!

You might not love it, but you have to admit it's better than the fabric I had on it yesterday! Gaudy vs Glam...sometimes it's a fine line! ;)

Allison you are lightening quick! And so on point with that Union Jack. Thanks for the nod above, really kind of you. It's perfect now and yes will sell easily (hopefully!) with the neutral fabric and changable pillow. Glad I could help, I love constructive criticism myself, it's truly what makes our projects better. Good luck with the sale this weekend.

Great job on the chair! I have two very similar ones (that I've been trying to sew slip covers for...Yikes!), but they have a "built in" fabric back. I think your pillow looks great on it!

That chair is gorgeous and the cushion is brilliant. I love everything!

Best wishes for a lovely week,
Natasha.

I like it. So was the Union Jack flag already a design on the fabric? I've looked for some and never seem to find it.
