couch and accent chairs coordinating doubts
January 17, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I have a ashton couch from raymour and flanigan furniture store and I am looking for two accent chairs which will go good with the couch. the couch is not white but almost cream and sand color. depending on the accent chairs I think i have to get pillows for the couch and a rug.
I really liked the swoop chairs . will these look good.
Will teal or gray velvet and silk fabric pillows go good with the couch? will a white rug with teal patterned rug go good with this setting?

I think your chairs should have more of a background of the cream in your couch, not the white.love the chair shape. The gray is really nice...sort a greige combo is good. Then accent colors could be anything.

Thankyou for the input. really appreciate it. I really loved the chair but felt something was missing.
will similar swoop accent chair in cream and brown (taupe) look good with the couch?

I tend to agree with mcbride2304. I think I'd rather have the chair accented in the same color if you decide on a print. This one from West Elm may be an option for you.

The second chair in the middle coordinate with your sofa so much better than the gray. I see that the design on the gray is eye catching but it would fight the scheme in the room. With the color of the second chair and your sofa, you can add that teal color and many other colors and which them out for each season. Great choice.

The fabric pattern on the chairs and in the rug should contain the cream color of the sofa.

Manon has a great pick.

A rug combining teal with gray and cream would pull it all together,

Thankyou very much everybody for the suggestions.
If anyone has other chair options please do post. the west elm chair looks good but my budget is less :(
I need two chairs and can't go above 1000$ for the whole room. i still need to get the rug, drapes and lighting and then nic nacs.

The prices at West Elm are ridiculous.
You pay for the name not the quality.

Is this the style you want?

How does $242 per chair sound?
This is Buckwheat Velvet

Yes this is the style i am stuck with right now. can't get it out. these look great. where can i buy these? 242 is not too bad, the previous chairs which i posted here are 165$ per chair. good height and nice size too but not able to decide on the color or pattern. there are no neutral colors like the one you have posted.
do you think the rust and brown bird pattern would not go good?

Too white, imo.

Incidentally, Walmart has quality wool rugs at extremely low prices.

Lots of styles!

Here is a Swoop in a colour I like for $238.
The Laguana is $$139.
The Hour Glass is $149 [lots of fabric choices]

Delivered by Fed Ex No shipping charges.

The background of that orange chair is too white...same problem as first chair you posted.

Thankyou everyone.
It doesn't have to be swoop. but liked it becos it was cheaper and nice looking too and quality is good too, not too good but decent enough for occasional use in living room. only when guests come they will use.

I thought the hour glass chair was for dining room. not sure abt it.

Aja Mazin, is the Mercantila.com good website to buy online. never heard about it.
Is it where the 238$ swoop chair is available? i like that one.
I saw the skyline grey linen button accented swoop in overstock.com but thought it might be too plain.
today went to target to get toss pillows for the couch.yes target had some good sale.
will check walmart for rugs.

hubby doesn't want stripes. i liked the avington chairs too.
The target velvet smoke chair is good but not sure about the color.will it go good with the couch? i realized only now the couch is more of beige, gold , sand tones. will this smoky blue , teal, gray blend good?
Or will other colors like brown, red, maroon blend more better? i felt the brown,maroon red, was soo common now a days.

Check Walmart Online for rugs.
The stores usually carry a very small selection.

Big Clearance.
Wool hand tufted rugs are the most durable and clean the best.

Much better picture of your sofa!!
Very fine!

The buttons give it such a nice touch

I think both the Target velvet smoke chair and the Target velvet slate chair would look fantastic with your sofa. [But not the pillows]

I make my own pillows and I choose the fabric last.

I like the Skyline grey linen button b/cs of the fabric and designer detail.
However, although it is a great design, your sofa probably needs chairs with more color.

The hour glass chair is a LR chair and is available at Target - Curves Hourglass Chair -
Sale Price $144.99

Compare the Target velvet smoke chair and the Target velvet slate chair.
The slate has nailheads for the same price.


I am going to get one of them - I think the one with the nailheads looks nicer and the reviews say they are both either a grey blue or a blue grey!!!

Mercantila.com and Target both carry Skyline and similar lines.

I like Mercantila.com b/cs you can call and talk with someone.

Also Mercantila.com often will lower the price.

1. I have recently emerged from my red and all variations of said colour
and I feel like our home is so much lighter and fresher.

I have my dark, rich red Persian rugs rolled up and stored and now I have
blues [duck egg, spa,....], creams and grays.

Remember, gray is the new beige and a wonderful neutral that works well.

2. It is absurd to pay the mark up at PB or West Elm, etc.
The products they carry are simply not worth the prices charged.
I can afford it but I refuse to waste my money.

Thankyou Aja Mazin. yes PB,West elm are very expensive. I have been seeing lots of DIY based on PB and west elm and ballards. way cheaper but need to put in the effort to diy.

Do you mean the pillows are not nice. somehow i have second thoughts for everything. if these pillows look good then i plan to make them. 35$ per pillow is too much when i can sew similar ones for less. but first i need to decide on the color, style and then i can check out fabric stores for similar look.( better quality too) i already have pillows just need to sew nice covers with nice fabric.

I meant the colour of the pillows would depend on the chairs you pick.

Then add a rug .

Fortunately, you can sew, so you can save $$$ on the window treatments.

Do you like contemporary or oriental rugs?

India is exporting a lot of well made rugs in all styles at low prices.

Check out Amazon, in addition to Walmart.
