Hi there! You can go with different colors and styles of chairs, depending in what sort of look you're after. If you are wanting to go a bit dressy and glam, maybe stick with navy for the chair, but in a different fabric from the sofa. For a more global/tribal look, chairs with a batik or ikat type print would look great. Or, for a warmer and colorful look, your chairs could be coral or rust colored, and finally for a tropical, casual look, you could do banana fibre or some type of wicker chair.

Not sure you want to use the metals - generally for the more glam look, gold would be best and for the others silver, but it's not carved in stone.

Don't forget you can also control the color, patterns and general look with accents like,sofa pillows,,curtains, lamp and coffee choices, etc.

What sort of look are you after?

Yes go to browse rooms on Houzz and pop some pics in your idea book, is very relaxing and fun. And a great way to put off doing housework.

Navy, yellow and grey are current but you might like to be different.
