I am in love the couch and chair. I can see why you’re concerned, but I am one of those visual people. I have to see it to be able to make a decision.

I also wondered if gray and tan will clash when painting my office (my house has warmer neutrals, so I ended up choosing a griege), but I looked up some pix on Pinterest and found quite a few examples where it looked nice. I think it depends on whether your gray is a warm gray or cool gray. And even then, it still could work.

Love the furniture set!

Sure it will work, as long as you have plenty of windows/light in there and use some other things to pull in the grey. Grey is a pretty neutral color anyway.The worst that can happen is you have to paint the room again,right?

I googled beige couch/grey walls, and look at some of these examples of all the colors used in combination.

This might help you. In our house, we have grayish walls throughout the downstairs and a tan couch. I think that it really works! We added a bright color (yellow) to keep it from being too plain. 

Idk why this photo is so grainy.  Sorry!

Take some leftover paint, paint a large swatch on a piece of white board, and then take it to the furniture store to hold up next to the fabric swatch. Or ask the store to lend you a swatch of your preferred fabric and bring the swatch home to see how it goes in the room.

I vote that the furniture is cool, you should buy it, and the worst that happens is you spend $100 and a weekend repainting!

I also have gray walls, and we do also have a very light tan/beige oversized chair.

This pic isn’t so good, but you can see that cream/light tan/beige goes nicely with gray, at least IMO, haha!!
