Living room upholstery
February 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I'm redoing the seating in my living room. Most of the old stuff is already out, so I'm not distracted by old colors. The room is multipurpose: formal living room, family media room, and library. My style is a cross between country and traditional. Open floor plan with a dark blue dining room and blue and gold kitchen visible. I'd like a deep red club chair on either side of the tv and a loveseat in the space between the living room and dining room. The dark blue recliner will stay for now, to be replaced by another chair in a blue pattern (probably) at a later date. The multicolored chair may or may not stay as an accent piece. What color for the loveseat? More red? Seems like a lot. Golds clash terribly with the carpet. I hate dark brown. No plaids or trendy paisleys, please. Should the chairs be solid or pattern, possibly a small diamond? Stripes somewhere? The frames of the chairs and loveseat will be very basic and traditional. Skirted with rolled arms. I will also be getting one ottoman to match the chairs, so that when not in use the chair by the desk will resemble a chaise. Also, should both chairs be the same fabric and the loveseat different, or all three the same, or one chair different, or possibly each piece in a different fabric? All opinions are welcome, please!
