we got a second couch to have more seating space. these are slipcovered couches and i had this color and an off white one for the couch we already had. i knew i could not get two slipcovers for the second so decided on red. glad i did. i think the off white would be too light with the light walls...at least for me.
i am loving this arrangement and the room seems bigger to me even with more furniture. go figure.
