How To Work With (Fabulously) Tacky Floral Couch?

Q: I have a black and tan sectional with a huge tacky floral print on it. I love it and I hate it. I think I can make it work while I'm saving for another one (it's been very hard to find a slip cover.) What colors or kinds of rugs would work with such a bold print? I'm stumped and open to anything— especially color! -Sent by Evan

Editor: That is one awesomely terrible/hideously fabulous couch, Evan! I'm kind of obsessed with it. There's a chance I'm wrong and the consensus will be "Cover it/sell it/BURN IT", but I think our readers will be able to come up with some ideas that will let your couch shine. Someday, when you do get a new sofa, visitors will say, "It's nice, but oh, I loved that other one you had..." Readers, help Evan's couch be all that it can be- and more!
