My younger sister recently bought a very reasonably priced ($40!)and unique retro floral sleeper sofa in excellent condition. The fabric is in such good condition that I think it has never been used. The fabric is a mix of burnt orange, orange and yellow flowers on a cream background (see below).
I thought I would do a quick internet search and see if I could find some inspirational photos that willl help her make it work in her space. Looks like the keys to incorporating a busy fabric on such a large scale, is an overall neutral backdrop and solid coloured pillows.
