Good Questions: ArmChair Advice?

AT DC,
I have this very comfy chocolate brown couch (actually my really old couch with a slipcover on it), this Pottery Barn rug which I love, and some silvery blueish silk curtains. I'd like to paint the table top a glossy white. I am looking for a chair to go with this group that won't too matchy-matchy. What would be a good, unexpected punchy color for an armchair to go with this current setup? Would a print upholstery even work or do I need to stick with a solid because of the rug. I am not stuck on the current pillows either so I would appreciate color suggestions as well. The walls are a creamy tan. Please help!

Elvira: we think a bright red or orange chair would look great in your living room. If you find a great pattern, don't feel you must shy away from it because of the rug.

Readers: what do you recommend?
