Definitely not strange to get a non matching.  Get a chair with a pattern that ties in the colors of your sofa, and your wall color.  If your wall color is just white, pick an accent color of your choice!  Greens, blues, creams, always look good tied in with chocolate brown 🙂

I would get one in a pattern that has the same dark brown in it.  Then it compliments what you have and isn’t all matchy matchy but coordinates.  Maybe get some throw pillows in the same fabric to pull it all together.

Judging by the magazines and websites I’ve seen, too much matching is passe’ these days. When I moved out of my ex’s apartment, I left the sofa and bought the chair, couch and loveseat I loved the most. They don’t match at all, but they’re similar colors. They actually look pretty decent together for being pretty randomly thrown together.

Also keep in mind that if you want to get something completely different, like a red wingback recliner, you could always tie it together with an area rug and some throw pillows.

Bichon Frise Nope! Not at all.  I would definitely try to pull in greens if its an open floor plan.  I have no idea what kind of fabrics you like, what your style is, OR the shades, or tints of blue and green on the walls, but compliment as best as you can.  On your sofa and other chair, bring in another patterned pillow to tie all the colors together, and so one patterned chair will not look out of place with all other solid color furniture.  This is just an idea I grabbed off Etsy.  Maybe a stiped fabric like that on the chair, and then a floral accent pillow on the sofa…same color families, different patterns!

Also, keep in mind, choose a chair of the same style as your sofa (modern? contemporary? etc. ).  It’ll make the entire space more cohesive

Mismatched furniture is better — it’s more interesting.   Just play with arrangements until you find one that looks good and is functional.
