We have ordered this lounge but in dark grey. I am wanting some opinions as to what colour cushions we should buy to go with it. We are thinking of having a light beige shaggy rug to contrast so the room doesn’t look too dark but what colour pillows would compliment it? Sorry there is no picture available of it in grey.
I was thinking maybe pastel blue, dark blue & cream cushions OR Deep Magenta with light lavender cushions. What does everyone think and can you possibly send me any photos as inspiration?

You can pair virtually ANY color with grey. Brighter colors look especially great! Our living/dining room area is grey/black/white/red-orange/hot pink/wood tones from floors. I loooove it. We have a lighter grey couch, if that helps your vision at all.
How about picking a rug with multiple colors in a pattern? I’m not a huge fan of mixing cool and warm tone neutrals.

I think either of those options would work. We have a dark gray sectional with beige walls and then bright green and yellow cushions and accessories

THis is our couch – CB2 shows it with bright jewel tones to give you an idea 🙂

We have a grey couch! It came with these hideous browns/olive greens/whites pillows that I HATE (and Fiance LOVES), but I ended up buying yellow/turquoise/white pillows for it.

I loved pairing rich purples and ivory with our old gray sofa, it was so pretty. RIP gray sofa. 🙁

I love turquoise pillows in the summer, and deep red ones in the winter on our grey sofa 🙂 I tried a contrasting grey at first and it looked funny.

We use burgundy in the winter and turquoise and bright green in the summer.

I tend to like pastels with gray: lavender, soft turquoise, pale green. Or bright yellow. 🙂

We have a dark gray couch with pale blue walls and I absolutely love the two colors together. I think pillows with orange (either bright or muted) would work really well. We have one accent pillow that has solid orange on one side and ivory/black on the other and I think it looks great.

@cuddlz88: That looks almost exactly like the couch we just bought. Our’s comes with throw pillows that have several shades of light green in them (one being almost a lime green).
