Fabric options & dining room updates

I pulled a few John Robshaw fabric samples from his line with Duralee (and a couple for L's room - I'm already thinking about how I want to make it more girly!)  I'm thinking of taking some simple, ready made curtains and adding a band around them in one of his darker, indigo fabrics.  I'm also considering making some cushions for our Bertoia chairs.  I love the look of them but they aren't the most comfortable chairs to sit in and I'm not a fan of the pads that come with the chairs.  I do like the simplicity of them and would definitely mimic the style, I just think it would be better in a different fabric other than vinyl.  I want them to blend into the chairs and not stand out so I like one of these white options.

Oh, and I found a settee I love from Ballard Designs.  It's kinda pricey so I'm saving my pennies because it is perfect and exactly what I had in mind.  It's also customizable in one of their fabrics or my own.  It would look pretty amazing in one of the lighter fabrics, don't you think?
