Entrance Hall Settee Redo

We inherited this beautiful Louis XVI settee from my mother in law. When my husband was young this sofa sat in the curve of a staircase in his house in Boston. It was covered in blue silk.

The current fabric is just plain terrible - it doesn't do justice to the piece at all. I have been pondering the fabric choice for some time now and think I have finally made a decision. Which one do you like best?

  1. Bring back the blue silk more towards robins egg than blue jean.

  2. It's kind of hard to see them - especially the ones in the back - but I don't think you can go wrong with blue.

  3. Oooh, great piece of furniture. I vote one of the schumacher blues or the gray chinoiserie, have fun!!!!
