Not just one

Pick a frame and a fabric.  That's what most people do.  They walk into the furniture store and find something that works in their space.  Maybe mix things up a bit with a fun fabric on their throw pillows.  But you can have so much fun with your upholstered furniture.  Why pick just one fabric?

I love designer Kit Kemp's creative use of fabric.

One fabric on the outside frame and one fabric on the cushions.  And what fun colors!  {Via Kit Kemp's Number Sixteen Hotel}

A colorful, patterned fabric on a visible chair back is a great way to add interest to a space.

Again, contrasting fabric on the inside and outside of the sofa. This blush pink is made even more outstanding against the black fabric on the outside frame.  Beautiful! {Via Designers Guild}

I love this idea of stripes on the back of a sofa.  We will do this in one of our projects someday! {Via Designers Guild}}

Using different fabrics on dining room chairs is always nice.  You can choose a more durable, easy to clean fabric for the inside of your chair and a stand-out, but maybe not as durable fabric for the outside of the chair.

Or you can skip the practical stuff altogether and just go for the eye candy.

This is fun and different.  A patterned band of fabric on the center of the modular pieces.  

Such a great color palette! {Via Roche Bobois}

A "cap" on a chair is another way to bring in multiple fabrics.

We spotted this at Lee Industries at Fall Market.  Such a cute little chair!
