chrissybee :  Great sofa! I wouldn’t try to replicate the existing fabric. Instead, I would play with contrast: a fabric with a more modern design for the seat cushions – the stripes one below would work very nicely- while still connecting in terms of color/tone.  Add several solid decorative cushions, and you’d have a unique interpretation of Victorian:

chrissybee :  I second the suggestion from claroquesi :  . The contrasting pattern in similar shades would be lovely.

Also, nice find! That couch is AMAZEBALLS! Please post photos when it’s done. I saw a similar couch 2 years ago sitting next to a dumpster in North Las Vegas. It had dark wood legs/trim and blue velvet fabric and (I was told) it weighed about 300lbs. It was stunning.
