Victorian or leather sofa?

November 7, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hello everyone, I'm new to this website and I was hoping I'd get some ideas or suggestions. I just moved into a new condo and it has an industrial feel to it. I was planning on having a leather sofa in the living area and painting the wall violet/purple. A leather sofa would be lovely with a throw and some pillows. However I found a gorgeous purple victorian sofa today and I'm considering getting it. I'm just afraid it wouldn't "fit" with the overall layout of the apartment. And since it's purple, I obviously won't paint the wall violet or purple if I did get it.

Which sofa do you think I should get? And what color you think I should paint the wall if I did get the victorian sofa? Thank you! :)

The wall color could be a light gray with a hint of lavender or a creamy mustardy yellow or even the eclectic blue in your sofa wall photo. Oh...a fun and eclectic green wall too! Tequilla lime wall color...

Ok i am being practical here..... This soft doesnt look very comfy if you want to lie down. Just saying. Make sre you think of all considerations. If you love it go for it!

If it fits, my vote goes to the purple sofa too.

I had a sofa like that (only smaller) and with a large pillow it was supercomfy.

Other than white I think light Yellow is a good combination with purple sofa, considering dark wooden floor
