What to match with English Arm Sofa

minnetonkamariOctober 26, 2010


I have an English Arm Sofa in my Great Room. I want to freshen things a little, but the sofa is only 4 years old and I can't justify replacing it, plus it's beautiful and comfy. I want to replace the chairs in that room and give it a more updated and current look. I'd like to add chairs that aren't too traditional but not so modern that it looks silly and doesn't fit the style of our home which is very Hamptons, dark wood floors, lots of white mill work, very crisp and classic.

It's a very large room and the sofa is 104" long (custom made) and I want the chairs to be positioned directly across- chairs next to one another with a table between and facing the sofa.

Any suggestions would be very welcome.

Thank you,

Mari, sounds to me you already know what you want, just that your afraid what others may think of your selections. Dont worry as you are probably your biggest critic.
