Pinterest Dreaming - My Pieces in Great Settings

Here is one of my visions about how this piece can be incorporated into a very eclectic setting! Source - my pinterest boards..
I am a huge fan of pinterest and use the application for a number of reasons including organizing my own stuff (e.g., vacation plans, shop listings, recipes). One thing I like to do with pinterest is to save images of different decorated rooms/settings that impress and inspire me - usually by major color scheme and use them for guidance in fabric and finish selection.
Another black and white color scheme with a pop of yellow - source - my pinterest board.
Since I am in the business of finding and refurbishing heirloom-quality upholstered furniture for resale (mostly online), it is important to get the transformation right. That means finishes but especially fabrics. It is very costly to have pieces professionally reupholstered so making the right choice is absolutely critical - redo's are just not feasible.

It is fun and interesting to create photo collages to try to imagine how my pieces (all for sale on Etsy and eBay) can be incorporated into these settings!  The original sources for these photos can all be found on my pinterest boards.

Classic blue and white - these compact slipper chairs would work in so many settings. 
This chaise is a champagne color and would work well in neutral settings as well as very colorful settings - it just blends and is very comfortable! 
I love this smart Woodmark (brand) chairs - very lively!
I cannot get enough bergere chairs - large and small - and wish I could do just French and French inspired furniture - just not enough available at good prices.
Well that was fun - how do you use pinterest?  AND, if you have haven't started, I suggest you do - its easy and can be a good organizational (and dreaming) tool!
