Need help with the arrangements for my new furniture pieces!

Hey I. Just purchased the chair and recliner. Should I buy another chair for balance? Do I need another sofa? If so will a leather sofa work here in a solid color. What color? Don't worry about the vertical blinds they will change.

It's hard to advise once you have already gone out and spent a bunch of money. From all three the recliner is the odd one out. I would replace it with the matching chair and get rid of the recliner.

Agreed with getting another matching chair. The recliner looks out of place against the more patterned fabric IMO.

The recliner is for my mom who needs it for medical reasons. Here are more pics.
The furniture. Paint color so far Edgecomb Gray and Monroe Bisque. Any other suggestions for color based on fabric patterns.

The skirt on sofa in the 13X14 space is off balance with the chair. Before this I made the mistake of getting an over sized small sectional. I could not see the floor. I exchanged it for the chair and recliner (for mom).

What size is the room? We need more pictures! Can you draw a plan of the space for us?

I like the small sample of color of paint. Not feeling the others.

I like your sectional a lot better, but stop the spending and exchanging.

Make an idea board for yourself, with the pictures of everything (sofa, chairs, rug, lamps, curtains, wall color), (not even a professional designer can wing it like you are trying to), before you spend any more money..

I would buy a leather sofa and love seat the same color as that brown in that chair whichever brown you can find it looks like two different browns in the chair. Beautiful chair good job, but once you do that you discover that is all the furniture you will need because the chair is busy enough. Your decor will bring out the room.

Like the idea board. I wanted a fresh look. My old furniture was not working for seating. That was my inspiration to change on a whim. The designers here have a lot of experience. Here is a picture of the side table in my board. I have stopped the S and E. Lol. What do you think about the paint colors? I think they match the fabric patterns in the chair.

Love your colors, especially the dark one, then you can bring the light cream in curtains. zen

yes, replace the couch. I think you need one with a higher back.
Don't paint the walls until you've got the furniture and rug if you're putting one.

If you get a rug, go big, remember all the furniture needs to have a couple of legs touching it.

Myriad I have a living room 13 X 14. I have purchased two swivel chairs in tan leather from Laz y boy. I had a designer work the measurements and design.
A large rug and new blinds for my bow window. The color is celedon by Hunter Douglas. I also had to purchase a lift chair for my mom. It is suede material. Looking for a couch. I'm so glad you chimed in. I want to get a sofa bed couch that extends a little beyond the existing wall for more seating. A 76 inch or 80. Color is the problem and material. Thinking leather.

I really like the new chair if you can get another chair and a rug ,for the wall I would go with the blue that you have in the chair's fabric ,remove the vertical blinds and get curtains instead.
