I need help. In so many ways but today I'm honing in on my living room. See that cream, over sized love seat in the photos below? Yeah, that's going. It's not really cream anymore, thanks to the dogs, and while it served it's purpose for the couple of years we've had it, it's usefulness in our casa has expired. Having bought it off of Craigslist, parting ways with it will not be a financial waste because it was dirt cheap. Now, it's just full of dirt. I'm sure it can be cleaned. In fact, it's rather easy to wipe down, I just don't have the time, patience or devotion to continue to care for such a piece knowing our two bassets will just bring it back to it's present state quicker then Maci can take a poo.
So, my dilemma. With said dogs, the easiest furniture to maintain in our house is leather. However, we already have a leather sofa (from Craigslist) that I happen to love and now I'm stuck with what piece(s) to add to it. The question: Do you think multiple leathers can exist in a living room and if so, do they have to match? Nowadays it seems mismatched is the way to go but I cannot find a photo, sample or magazine picture anywhere that shows mismatched leather pieces. Also, what type of chair(s) would you suggest and with what arrangement? Unfortunately, due to budge cuts, the present TV and entertainment center have to stay for now until the fund fairy returns to help us finish our basement and move the (flat screen) TV down there. Considering all that, what say you?
