Good Questions: Hardwood Floor Color

Good Questions: Hardwood Floor Color

Hello AT,

My husband and I recently purchased a 3 level loft. It is being built, and will not be completed for about a year. As such, we have the opportunity to choose the color of hardwood that will be installed. Our furniture is dark wood, with beige fabrics. We have one very modern Pottery Barn leather chair. Due to our inexperience with design, we are struggling with how to choose a hard wood floor color. We are leaning toward either a dark ebony brown or a medium brown that has a red tint in it. We have no idea if- from a design perspective- the hardwood floors need to match our furniture. Can you provide any guidance with regard to our choice or how close hard wood floors need to match furniture?
Thank you,
Christine
