The chair above shows how fabrics depicting old country scenes don’t have to look outdated and out of place. This chair is part of a French vintage style. But a look like this could work in retro, eclectic or general country/rustic styles, as well.
Unless a style is very retro, using a country scene fabric on a whole large piece of furniture like a sofa could look overbearing. However, used as accent backing on a chair, it adds a classy country touch. The rest of the chair would look good with a rustic, textured fabric of a matching color. An example would be the flaxen fabric shown last on the list of similar country fabrics below, which matches the lighthouse theme above it.
