Mixing leather colors and fabrics

Posted by corimay (My Page) on

I need some opinions about our living room furniture. We have 2 Bradington Young sofas in a light tan. We're 99% sure we'll be going with a Flexsteel rectangular ottoman in a dark brown leather for contrast. I also want to get a cube storage ottoman from Flexsteel, but the one I like only comes in microfiber/fabric (top lid is microfiber, the base is a patterned fabric).

So my question is, would it look odd to have tan leather sofas, a dark brown leather ottoman, and a microfiber cube storage ottoman? I'm just not sure if having all these different fabrics and colors will look good together. And if we did go with the fabric cube ottoman, should we try and go for matching dark brown to the rectangular ottoman, or go with some completely different .. an accent color like a soft shade of blue.

It's been hard finding a company that sells a leather rectangular ottoman and a matching storage ottoman! And I'm a pretty neutral-colored person, it's hard for me to commit to brighter colors.

thanks in advance!

if colors are not exactly alike may look a bit strange, anyway does not have to look bad. The decoration is not an exact science.
