Good Questions: What Color Chair and Curtains Should I Get?

Hello AT,

Help! I live in a smallish apartment in Cambridge, MA and I need help with my living room. I am looking for a second chair (currently, one black leather couch and one 'champagne' colored chaise) and have no idea on the color choice or design to choose...

I'm thinking something small scale. I also need new curtains, but I have no idea what color to get. The room is a merlot-ish red, deeper than the pictures make it out to be.

Please, please help.

Thanks! Ben
