we are contemplating buying a leather sofa, probably dark brown or maybe a bit lighter brown if we can find it. I'm thinking that getting a leather sofa plus leather chair and love seat is too much dark brown leather. I'd like to have some fabric - either furniture or pillows - in lighter colors to brighten the room. DH has a dark brown leather recliner; he'd like to keep it or get another recliner. I'm thinking mixing a new leather sofa with the old traditional leather chair might not fly. We could do two pieces of new leather - chair and sofa or chair and loveseat plus a fabric covered chair. If we try to do a new leather sofa, plus the old leather chair in a similar but not exact matching color and add a fabric piece, probably too much mix-up? This is going into a Mexican/Spanish country style home with a small cozy living room. Any suggestions from decorators or creative people will be appreciated.
