Her Sofa (His is below the jump)

In less than a month, my boyfriend and I will be consolidating homes; we're moving in to a gorgeous Wicker Park apartment with dark hardwood floors and tons of dark exposed brick. The living room is long and fairly narrow. The problem is this: our two sofas could not be more different....

His Sofa

His is red leather contemporary (I know, I know) and mine is a classic mid-century taupe. I have other mid-century pieces that I'm not willing to part with, but are flexible and could go in other rooms if necessary (credenza, side chairs). I am thinking about changing the legs on his, but am open to other/more suggestions.

Thoughts?

Please let Erin know what you think in the comments below...thanks!
