Reupholstering a Hans Wegner Papa Bear Chair

How Should I Reupholster These Hans Wegner Chairs?

Here's a post from CasaSugar Community member vtskillz from the Assisted Living group:

I happen to be lucky enough to have inherited two Hans Wegner Papa Bear Chairs from my grandparents . . . funny part being I didn't even know what they were until about six months ago, but I have a huge sentimental attachment to them!

Unfortunately, they do need a bit of TLC, so I am looking to have them recovered. I would love some input on fabric choice! Right now they are in my sitting room, but I eventually want to have them in my master and guest rooms as reading chairs. So I'd like two different fabrics that work well together but would also be standouts on their own. Any suggestions?

Do you have any suggestions for vtskillz? Leave your thoughts in the comments! (Note: this is not vtskillz's Papa Bear chair — but if you want to buy this one you may do so here.)
