How To Coordinate with Gorgeous New Slate Blue Sofa?

Q: I purchased the Rockford sofa from Home Decorators Collection in slate blue velvet with silver nailheads. Originally I felt it would mix well with my eclectic taste, but now I am struggling to pair it with other living room pieces such as chairs and end tables.

The shade of "slate" blue is also difficult to coordinate with fabrics, and the silver nailhead is a focal point so it is also tough to mix in other metallics. What colors would you suggest and what style should my coordinating pieces be? Should I paint the nailhead a more gold/bronze so that I have more options?

Is the sofa just too modern to fit into an eclectic space? I have a clear glass waterfall coffee table that works well, but need ideas for a rug, chairs and end table.

Any advice would be much appreciated!
