Have you noticed the trend to use different or contrasting fabrics when upholstering the backs of chairs?

My initial instinct is that I like it – I think its cute and fresh and fun.  I would say I prefer a subtle use of the trend, as in the last photo by House Beautiful.  I don’t think I would use a fabric with word art to cover the back a wing back!

Even though I think its kind of neat, I wonder if it will be one of those “fads” that is really dated in ten years?

What do you think?
