Q: We are moving into a new home and need a new sofa and chair (or sectional?) for the main floor, open concept, living room. Things get interesting when one takes into account the 'eclectic' pieces we are bringing into the space. We have inherited a beautiful tufted leather rocking chair that we are having refinished. Somehow we would like to pair it with a coffee table we received as a wedding gift years ago (this needs updating!). Help is needed for two things - 1) what kind of sofa and chair (or sectional) could possibly tie these pieces together? AND 2) how should we refinish the table?
Our space, in front of a fireplace with mantle, has 14 feet running in front of two windows (but we need to take into account the fireplace mantle, which will only really leave 10 feet of space), with an adjacent pony wall on the right that is 7 feet long. The space, although not reflected in the pictures, has crown molding and very large baseboards.
Please help - this is a tricky pairing!!
