What colour arm chairs would you put?


I'm trying to furnish my family room. We'll have a 3 seater red sofa, and a 3 seater black leather sofa.

I need to put 2 arm chairs by the window. What colour(s) would you suggest? Either I go with a zebra printed rug and plain arm chairs, or a plain rug and printed arm chairs?

The wall colour is Benjamin Moore Dufferin Terrace (CC-456).

Please help!

I'm not a fan of zebra print so I would suggest a plain rug. If your couches are solid red and solid black I would go with a print on the chairs. Maybe a nice white background with a red print in the style of your choice. You could even have chairs reupholstered because your choices in fabrics are greater.

Then again, it's easier to change a rug then it is to reupholster chairs, so a plain chair could go through more design changes.

I know what chair design I'm thinking of in my head so I'm going to hunt the interwebs and post a picture of what I mean.

This first pic isn't exactly what I went hunting for but I thought it was super cute. The white would help brighten up a room with darker/bolder couches.

The second, I don't like the chair itself, but the print was about what I had in my head.

And the third I thought was also cool looking and seems like it would go with black leather.
