I need urgent help as I have only few days to decide about the fabric colours for our sitting room

We have dark grey walls( wet cemnt colour)
French chairs ( with dark coffee wooden frame ----4 single chairs and one with 3 settee)

also 8 table chairs also similar to french chairs.

I have 3 colours in mind to use but could not decide....

dark grey ( antrasit velvet)
antique plum velvet

antique greyish coffee

also need curtains which I think I will have taffeta fabric ( maybe with shot effect)

please help me what should I have
I am enclosing some of the photos ( the wall colour is different now)

Thank you in advance for any of your interests....

I would not do Grey with that wood tone . There are beautiful clear blues out right now. Velvet would be nice But go toward the periwinkle rather than they gray. Or go flat lavender to bring out the accents in the rug and pottery.

thank you so much for your comments. I will take into consideration meanwhile would you recommend to use the same colour for armchairs and the table chairs or to use different colour... We have also a berger armchair which I have to have it covered. thank you in advance.

re periwinkle this is one of the colour which I like best but I think it is in fashion this year so we might see it every corner!!! this is putting me off a bit although it was the colour I have chosen at the beginning ... so I went to plum instead of periwinkle.
thank you in advance....

Go with a lighter color instead of plum. I think with your dark floors the plum will make it too dark.

Very beautiful furniture. I would suggest the lighter colors in the purple family. I would recommend this fabric on the dining chairs then chose a solid velvet for the settee. http://www.calicocorners.com/product/designer+fabrics+for+the+home/shop+fabrics+by+color/purple/mercury+lavender.do

You could mix the fabrics on the dining chairs. By doing the back side of the back of the chair in the contrasting solid or pattern whichever you prefer.

I think that you should go with a solid blue or very soothing lavender
