newyorkgirlJanuary 1, 2013
My leather couch got kinda messed up, so I need choice of new couch! Me and my mom agree that I should probably go with a fabric, just what color?

Without knowing what colours you like and what the rest of the room looks like, it's just a guessing game, newyorkgirl. Can you give us more information?

Maybe a chocolate chenille fabric. Comfy and wears well.

It looks like a micro-fiber would work well for your lifestyle.

It got messed up because I've had the couch for a long time I
guess, so it got pretty scratched up

newyorkgirl, I see you have two posts here which is getting us all confused. If the leather is "messed up" then leather obviously isn't suitable for your lifestyle. At least with a fabric couch you can always buy slip covers.

However if you can't afford a new sofa at this stage then you have to make do. It seems you have two couches and a single chair. If only one couch is 'messed up' then could you afford to replace that one only. I'm thinking a fabric would be much cheaper than leather and if you could match a fabric to the tan colour in your rug it could compliment the other two leather items.

Use your rug colours for some cushions and/or throws to tie everything together. Your rug looks very pretty.

I would google how to fix leather scratches on a couch. If they are not too deep.

How deep are scratches?

There could be an easy fix.
