Thanks for the quick reply. I also wanted to mention that either chair will be in Microfiber material while the sofa and love seat will be in leather. Do you think that will look bad if the chair is in fabric while the sofa and love seat is in leather?

I will go against the grain so far and say I prefer the beige microfibre. I don't like the look of the grey fabric. The beige will go better with the couch IMO.

Thanks. Don't you think there should be some contrast between the chair and the rest of the set? I heard its good to mix and match.

I don't like the contrast of that gray. No, I don't think it is necessary for them to contrast. It really depends on how you put things together. I have all same colour chairs and couch in our family room and it looks good. In our more "formal" living room we have a contrast (but with complimentary colours). We have a darkish gray-brown sectional and a patterned chair in off-white with a light blue and yellow pattern. They look good together (and are sitting far enough apart that they are kind of "separate" seating areas).

Ok guys, so I have found a new chair in Tobacco color. Now I am deciding between only the Tobacco and the Gray colour chairs. I attached the colour pallet of the sofa and love seat.

I prefer tobacco in terms of colour and material. I hate microfiber regardless.

Some contrast is nice, don't want a sea of beige all around. Hopefully you will also throw in some other lively colours so everything does not look brown-ish.

The tobacco colour is much better than the gray. I really didn't like the combination of that gray and the beige couch.

My question to you guys is that do you think they they will compliment each other or do you think they dont go well together? Do you think I should just get the taupe chair so it kind of matches the swatch? Or do you think it is better to have a little contrast to beige?

Key things to consider.

- My carpets are mushroom colour
- The Paint in the room is focused on the beige theme.
- I have already ordered the beige colour swatch sofa and love seat so definitely no changing that colour.
- I have the option to choose either the gray chair or the taupe colour chair. No other colour options are available.

Thanks for your feedback!
No they don't complement one another because everything in your room (carpeets, furniture, wall colour) are neutral colours (so how can the complement one another?) . Most people go this route - there's nothing wrong with that but to me that's really boring, ordinary and unimaginative. If you want to go with the approach, honestly doesn't matter which one you choose as it won't make much of a difference. I would get accent colour for the armchair for a pop of colour.

^ Colour can come from things like pillows, throw blankets, artwork, rugs, vases, flowers, etc.

I was thinking about offsetting the neutral theme in the furniture with a more bold use of accent colours in the area rug and throw pillows.

I've eliminated the beige colour chair and have now narrowed it down to the grey or tobacco coloured chair

Reseeing your first picture with your wall/carpet colour, 100% tobacco chair. Seriously it looks like your sofa/loveseat will disappear in room and blend right into the wall. And the grey won't help much either.
