Cream or gray would be nice and neutral.

I have beige walls, eggplant drapes and a chocolate brown leather couch.  I love all the color scheme you picked 🙂  I’m copying.

I love the idea of a neutral couch with amazing throw pillows in your color pallete. It is a lot more fun and you can change the pillows a lot easier should you want to mix things up later on.

I have interior design experience and I would say it depends how dark a purple it is. If is dark use lots of gray for balance. A lighter version toward an eggplant color would look good with a light gold. What you have shown is a great start. Just remember every room should have a touch of black somewhere even if it is just a lampshade. It grounds the room. Hope that helps!

I would definitely go for a gray couch with purple and cream throw pillows.

What about a dark brown leather sofa?  Or dark gray? 

Alternatively you could go bold–with a bright red or orange couch/accent chair or slip cover. 

I think you need some higher contrast
