I have a charcoal/brown (taupe chenille) apartment sofa which I love
but cannot decide what tone of wood furniture to match it with.
I currently have matched it with a light cherry low coffee table,
which is actually solid with cool storage, but the veneer is peeling off. I also have a whole bunch of IKEA side tables (shamefully...) and
CD shelves which are in similar beechwood finish (discontinued...).
I also placed an ivory loveseat to balance it off but I am not sure
if this is working right.
I plan to upgrade my furniture a bit as I relocate this summer,
and so far the sofa will be staying. I am thinking about getting
a matching coffee table & a side table OR a coffee table & a sideboard. Ideally, a Knoll credenza would be perfect, but the West Elm modern storage media stand (below) in acorn finish would be an okay substitute...or not?
I always see light sofas matched with wenge/chocolate or dark wood
furniture in catalogues, but rarely vice versa. So please help me with some ideas!!!
Thoughts on the subject??
