Apartment Therapy reader Katie needs help coordinating chairs with her newly created Chesterfield:

Now I have a sleeper Chesterfield! My question is this: I've also gotten these club chairs, and plan on having them reupholstered as well. I don't want to do the same color as the couch, but I would like to set up some three point seating, and make them look like they belong together. I was thinking a mousy or cocoa brown. I LOVE Jeremy's Tinseltown Time Capsule, and all things Art Deco, Hollywood Regency, 1930's/1940's. I would love some feedback- Thanks!"

A - Katie: First we would like to know a lot more about your fabulous sofa conversion- we love your new Chesterfield! As for the chairs, the current ivory color looks wonderful to us with the sofa, and they certainly look like they belong together. We also think a soft blue or green would be a lovely combo with the sofa depending on your overall decor.

Any additional suggestions readers? If so, post them below!
