I bought this chair about six weeks ago to go with a brown leather recliner and a taupe colored microfiber sofa. It was the PERFECT addition to my living room. The colors are not too bright at all and it is really comfy. I highly suggest it as an additional living room chair if you already have some basic, plain colored furniture. It basically gave me the color scheme for the pillows and art work. I absolutely LOVE my new living room and I get rave reviews on the chair every time someone walks in the door!
