He got no resistance from me - I quickly agreed that this was a great statement piece and certainly worthy of building a room upon.
Given the generous dimensions of the family room, I suggested we add another sofa to help fill up the space and provide plenty of seating for the family and friends who would gather here. Rather than go with a matching sofa, I suggested something clean and understated that would be compatible without competing with the leather Chesterfield.
I love the slipcovered version, and I recommended a linen slipcover for the warmer months and velvet for fall and winter.
The idea of having two sofas in the same room that are completely different can be a little tough to sell. After all, many of us were raised in homes that had living room, dining room, and bedroom "suits". Why? Instead, consider non-matching sofas for a layered and collected look.
Does this qualify as the same room? In any case, note black leather sofa sharing space with white fabric sofa.
This is what I'm talking about. Have I convinced you that opposite sofas attract? Or are you already a member of the Mixed over Matched club?
