I just had a new leather couch delivered today - as you can see, there is no place for it except under the window..I am keeping the side window panels..but want a new shade or something under -- I usually do Kirsch..also - need a suggestion for 2 chairs around fireplace..need to replace pink one (from my blue/mauve days)..and maybe do something else on other side of fireplace? Any suggestions would be welcome (but the couch cost a fortune, so don't say anything bad about it!!!) thanks!
I really like your new sofa. Don't worry- I won't say anything bad about it. :) With that said, I might say something bad about combining the camel leather with red... ;) Look at the photo where you see the sofa right there with the red in the drapes. It is not working together. The red pillows are screaming, "Take me off of this sofa!" I would take the red out of the room- or at least minimize it. Replace it with the color of the leather- and you will LOVE that room. Everything will fall into place.
So- for your chairs- first of all- I would move your sofa to FACE the fireplace. Is there a TV in that armoire? DO you need a TV in this room? Can you do a flat screen over the fireplace? I will just tell you that your room is far better balanced if your main sofa is facing the fireplace. If you can- move it around. Follow that move by adding a sofa table. I wanted to bring in a pattern on the chairs. With that said- the best options are going to be in custom pieces- so I tried to find some non-custom less expensive options for you. The green one below is from CSN sofas. I have found their prices to be an excellent value. I would get two matching chairs in your room. In a larger room, with more furniture- it is easier to shake it up- but in a room with as much symmetry as yours has- I wouldn't fight it- keep it symmetrical.
