Yes, I am seeing flamestitch patterns appearing in many upscale showrooms. But they have updated, sophisticated color palettes. It is a classic, so it is nice to see the new versions. I have scanned in one from Schumacher in neutrals.
I would use it on, perhaps, a contemporary version of a wingback chair. I will find one for you and post a photo. We are using contemporary wingbacks in a hotel lobby now. I’ll show you that one. Then I would place the chairs on a large scale area carpet. —a contemporary area rug, in other words. Let’s use a plush fabric like a velvet or something kinda woolly as a lumbar throw pillow in the chairs.
