I do have a great deal of sympathy for salespeople and managers that work in retail environments, as retail customers can be as difficult and challenging to deal with as vendors and delivery companies. The most important thing to remember when purchasing furniture, is to educate yourself properly on what you want and expect, and communicate that BEFORE you buy the furniture. Should any mishaps occur, make sure that you are working directly with the manager, and NEVER sign for damaged furniture on delivery. NEVER. It's extremely difficult to recoup those expenses after the fact! The best position to be in (should there be damage to your furniture) is to call the furniture store while you still have the delivery people at your home, allowing the company to have the chance to load the piece up and take it back to their warehouse- saving everyone time and money.

I think that the room should have navy blue, coffee, and a purplish eggplant color for accents. These colors would enhance the warmth of the sofa, and you can find a lot of great things to work with in those colors. The sofa reminds me of Richard Neutra's architecture, and taking guidance from his emphasis on linear and horizontal symmetries might be a nice thing to think about.
