I want to show you my retro chair covered in a lovely new Clarke & Clarke Chico fabric. You know when you have an idea in your head of how you want something to look ?
I bought the chair retro style chair a few years ago but it needed a bit of colour loving, I felt. But nothing jumped out at me for a while. My all time favourite colour is turquoise so I was lucky that they sent over some of their latest samples recently which led me to one of their latest prints.
The Chico design is from their Zanzibar collection, inspired by Spice Markets, full of bold geometric patterns embroidered on linen, teamed with rich jacquards and bold plains. The Aqua that I chose to use is one of several palettes that form this contemporary range – the others are charcoal, indigo, sunset and fuchsia.
Although I say contemporary, actually, I see this particular pattern as quite retro and ideal for the chair – that’s what I love about design – it’s all relative.
I made a little bright pink velvet cushion to match the flamingo print – and to finish the overall look. After that I sat down and drank that hot chocolate in my favourite Vera Wang at Wedgewood cup and saucer. :)
Hope you like the new look chair ? What’s your favourite colour ? Let me know by leaving a comment or tweeting @lucylovesyablog. Would love to hear from you.

I was sent this fabric for the purpose of this post. All opinions my own.
