I absolutely adore both of Hable's dot prints, Checker and Beads, but they wouldn't work well in a formal setting. Here are more examples to give you an idea of the range of styles of dotted fabrics that are out there:
So, what are your thoughts on using dots on upholstery? Love it, hate it?

If you don't love the idea of covering a whole sofa or chair with dots, then consider it as an accent fabric. If that sounds appealing, check out Hable's super cute ready-made pillows. They sell them in linen, cotton, and outdoor fabric. Here's the Lemon Beads/Oyster pillow paired up with a floral and an ikat....
