Vintage sofa fabric- flame stitch from the 70's.
This is the sofa fabric. What goes with this?????

yes, it's bold. and kinda ugly. and the sofa parts are big- 7 ft long for the sofa and another 4 ft of curved sofa (sectional) so, there's a lot of it. . But it's staying. So I have to deal with it. Pillows and throws might cover some of this up.
The room it's in is beige, green and cream. The colors in the sofa are a sunwashed (made to be that way- not just left in the sun too long) red, green, blue and an orangy-yellow color. It's got a cream background. The sofa is a triple pillow back and so is the curved section.
What I don't understand is whatever possessed someone to chose this fabric- southwestern-y chevrons (or heartbeats) and more traditional florals don't honestly go together- not now, not 20 years ago when this was recovered. Not in the future either as far as I can tell. But, I have learned to live with the sofa (it's comfortable and fits in my space-and it was 35 dollars so it's staying no matter what I say about this fabric)
Any ideas for throw pillows?
