Q: I have been obsessing over what fabric to choose for this sofa - currently living on our porch - for over a year. I swear I fall asleep visualizing it, pathetic really. With two small children and cats, the fabric must be durable, and I can't choose a stain-resistant fabric as I'm avoiding the chemicals. I'm a huge fan of the curvy Finn Juhl -style sofas with contrasting trim, and initially I thought I'd pick a grey fabric with contrasting trim and buttons ( ie, light grey with a dark grey or dark blue welt..) but now I'm unsure.
My living room is grey with white trim, my dining room is a saturated blue, floors are hardwood with a fairly dark stain. So, if I had a blue couch the design element would be repeated, while if I used gray, it would go from dark to light, but I would have a large painting behind for contrast.
