Living Room Eclectic

Just a few mood boards for our living room redo.  I've been staring at these objects so long that can't tell if these are crazy fugly, like some color-blind and drunk dude's rec room rejects, or eclectic fun.  Where's Tangerine Queen Kors or Grampa Gunn when I need them?

Here's the media/tv area:

The sectional, media cabinet, Noguchi table, and pillows (imperial trellis and chiang mai dragon) we either own already or have already purchased.  The giant Surya rug I bought on impulse during last week's Gilt sale, and I might already regret it (though it's redness might be mitigated by layering a soft, neutral rug on top).  Everything else is up for discussion/debate/dismissal.

And here are some ideas for the seating vignette on the other side of the room:

The Sanna chairs are the only things that must stay.  Do we like them with the Meryl arc floor lamp and Ginger side table (which is a burnt sienna color) from Crate and Barrel?  This is a slightly more industrial look, as the Meryl has a silver finish (which may or may not clash with the brass accents on the other end of the room) and the Ginger table is made out of laser-cut steel.

Or do we like them with the Gourd lamp from West Elm and a more explicitly Chinese side table, which would be painted red (it looks more orange in this photo)?

Another option is to get an inexpensive Chinese garden stool.  The sculptural lamp is the Cleo lamp from Crate and Barrel.  You can't really tell in this photo, but it has very handsome brass tripod legs.

The rug in the three boards is the Chevron Knot Rug from West Elm, though I'm also playing with the idea of getting a herringbone patterned set of Flor carpet tiles instead.  I love the idea of mixing a menswear pattern with the more feminine Schumacher fabrics I have on the other side of the room.

What do you think?

I think I like option 1. I love the lamp, table, rug combo.

Yes, yes. Option 1 is the VERY best. Lurve it.

I like Option 1, swapped with the garden stool :)
