Style: informal, with a modern twist. Any thoughts on furniture would be great — do we go with two sofas? Or one sofa and two chairs? If we go with two sofas, do they need to be matchy-matchy? We are thinking of getting a C&B Petrie leather sofa but not sure what to pair it with… any thoughts? Thanks!
