Does this furniture match?

We are remodeling our living room, so I get to design everything which is awesome! I didn't realize how hard it is though! I want a sofa chaise and a chair and a half, but I have yet to find matching sets tha have both of those pieces. So what are your feelings on non-matching couch and chairs, as far as size , shape and fabric?


DH's one request is a recliner, so we just bought this chair and a half because it reclines and was an awesome sale, but I hate the couch that goes with it and it doesn't have a chaise. I found another sofa chaise by the same company but not sure how they will look together... What do you think?


Chair we bought: 


Couch I am thinking about: 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


 


Does it matter that the arms and cushions are different shapes on each piece?

LOL - oh my gosh Sam! I thought you a spammer!  LOL. 

Anyway, I love that couch that you posted - where did you see it?  I don't think it matters where the arms are on each of the pieces.

I love that gray couch!! It's kind of hard to picture it with the other one though...But what really matters is how anal you and DH are about decor. lol. If this is a remodel that will pretty much be what you have forever, make sure you love it! It's tough when something is on a great sale, so its hard to pass up but then it makes other decisions that much tougher!

Thanks Elise!! I really don't know...I love the chair but that style is only good in small doses, it didn't look good in the couch form lol...but I'm so terrible at this kind o thing! It's hard to tell from the picture, but that chair is so wide it fits two people easily...SO comfy lol!

Luckily we have some time before the living room is finished so I will for sure keep looking :)

LOL - I am going to have to drag DH to Ashley.  We are in desperate need of a new living room set up. Our couches do not fit properly in our living room.  The width is not too big, but the length is.  If that makes any sense.

Update - the chair came in and it is THE MOST comfy thing I have ever been in!! It's huge...I never want to get up at night after I sit in it :)

I still don't know what I"m going to do about a couch LOL.

I think you can get away with mixing styles as long as you have some other unifying element. What color would you choose for the couch? Maybe get an accent pillow or throw for the chair, and then choose that color for the couch - like a coffee color or cream color or something that works with the chair without being too wild but also without trying to be a perfect match.

I hope that makes sense. I'm deliriously tired right now, and I can't be sure I'm coherent!

That's a great idea, using something to tie them together! The chair is a neutral enough color that I think I can almost do anything with the couch, decisions, decisions. Did I mention how much I HATE this?!

 I would absolutely love a big comfy chair like that! I like the idea of a unifying element. maybe try to find some matching throw pillows and blanket?

@juliee...DH and I just got a queen bed finally!! We feel like we have so much more room now! haha
