I also had to take into account two cats that like to use my current couch as their personal scratching post. So my desire for linen was out. :( I went with this slate gray velvet. It will have similar nail heads too. But bigger and wider spread.
Also, got a chair that will look like this shabby chic portobello chair--but in an oatmeal cotton slipcover.
The sectional will have similar lines to this couch. Tight back and English arms. It will be fairly deep as well. I wanted something pretty but comfy. Hopefully, in two months, I will have just that!
