Chinese Chippendale Desk Chair

I recently purchased this vintage desk for my family room.
 I loved the yellow color, the chippiness of it, and its chunky legs.
 I finally picked the fabric for the desk chair that I wanted to use next to my Spinet desk.

The chair I chose was a Chippendale design.  I love the chair but. . . .   it had a less than desirable seat cover.  Here's the before.

I chose a pale grey zebra stripe from my fabric stash and changed out the fabric.
 You know how I love animal prints.

I think it looks good next to the desk.  I pull it around to the front when I use the desk.  The black lacquered chair picks up the other black accents I have in the room.
 I consider animal prints neutrals.

     I also placed a bamboo Chinese Chippendale chandelier on the other side of the desk.

It's really a comfortable chair to work in at my desk.  It's also perfect extra seating.
Do you have a favorite chair or piece of furniture?
