Chinese Chippendales

So, a couple of items whose arrival we await (with all our other goods) are a pair of Chinese Chippendales we received from Ben's Grandparents' estate. They are weathered, but in overall good shape, and I can't wait to jazz them up!
Everything I've seen in the mags shows people doing them with fun colors, and fabrics that really pop, and I like that idea. Can't really pick a scheme until I know where I'll be using them, but found these pics as examples of going non-traditional with these classic chairs.
I'll post before & afters at a later date

Cool article about this style of chair
