I have a sofa and chair with the same pattern, the material is somewhat chenille.  I have a love seat that I want to cover but what should I cover it in?  A solid color from the other chair's pattern or a figured solid color?  Thanks

With a chenille sofa and chair, you need something with a fair amount of texture and strength to it to compliment your other pieces.  You may want to consider the new micro fiber fabric for your other chair... NOT a thin or light fabric.  You could also do a textured, but not necessarily an upholstery weight fabric, in a stripe, etc.  

As always, you may want to schedule a consultation with a local designer before you make this investment.  Slip covers and reupholstery are both very expensive!!

Best of luck to you,
