Q: I recently purchased the gorgeous Ikea Kramfors Frasig (leather) sofa combination w/ chaise in dark brown. Unfortunately there is no matching Kramfors armchair, and I really need either a single decent-sized armchair or perhaps two fairly small ones side-by-side to provide additional seating and make the space better for conversation.

I'm looking for both general advice on mismatched living room furniture (for example, I believe I've heard that mismatched pieces should not match in any of: material/texture, color, or overall shape in order to work) and specific piece recommendations for my particular situation. In general the style should be very modern/contemporary and minimalist (think expensive BoConcept catalog spreads emulated using select pieces from Ikea/on an Ikea budget).
Editor: David- that looks like the perfect couch to curl into on a cold rainy day like today. You might take a look at the Arild or the Skruvsta as accent chairs. Do any readers have recommendations for the perfect chairs to complement David's new sofa?
