My new mission was to find another chair...that matched. Proportionally I needed the height of the winged back, but in a color or pattern that wouldn't compete. My initial thought was to find a similar style chair and have it reupholstered in a complimentary fabric, but that seemed like a project that would never happen. Plus, I was tossed up on whether two different chairs would look disjointed in the room. I searched around for some options and found a teal wingback chair that I wouldn't have to reupholster (at least not right away). The only problem was that it was a pick-up only item, but I mean what was and hour and half (one way) for an amazing $50 chair, right? So I bid away, won, and borrowed the rents mini van to pick it up.
Three hours later I was back in my place with the chair, and it was perfect. To break of the overload of the chevron, I paired the bench with the new chair and let the chevron chair stand alone. In the end going the distance for a classic Queen Anne wingback chair in a teal velvet was worth the hours of thought and gas spent.
