I like the look of the blue better, but if the red stays in place better that would decide it for me. Or I might try to find some way to really anchor the blue ones down . . .

Personally I like the calmer feel of the blue denim but the red looks great as well. BTW, we have the same exact coffee table!

Wow, I really like both.
The denim blue has a more warm family feel.
The red one has a more upscale feel, like the prior poster said it looks like you could sit down with your wine and light some candles!

I would keep both and switch different seasons etc.

definitely the red.

The blue IF your frames were maple or bleached pine hung from silver rods instead of black, your walls were more buttery, your rug had blue/grey/green/yellows.

Go with red.
I think the red, being a warm color, makes the room look cozier--better for relaxing and hanging out.

Do you put baskets under your coffee table? I was thinking of doing that if I could keep the kids out from under it.

Definitely the RED! My first thoughts when opening the blue photo was "nice, but a little boring", then when I opened the red photo it just seems to really make the whole room 'pop'. It makes the walls seem warmer and brings out the color in your rug.

I have a red sofa and I absolutely love it! I was a little worried about it being bright at first, but is actually my favorite place in my whole house because it is warm and cozy. We get lots of compliments about it. I have a light haired dog (a pug) that gets lots of fur stuck the red corderoy which does really annoy me though!

If you have the space to store the extra slipcovers, I'd definitely hang onto both- you can change them as your mood changes, and you can put a clean one on if one gets soiled, you can put a fresh slipcover on while getting the other one cleaned for just routine cleaning, and not worry about the sofa underneath getting dirty, etc.

If you're just going to keep one set I'd go with the blue. It's more calm and peaceful and I personally like it better.

I've thought about putting baskets underneath too but haven't yet. I haven't found ones that I like and that are the right size. Right now that table is in our more formal living room but if we rearrange a little and that room becomes more informal with toys in it I thought the baskets under the table could be a storage option for the toys.

I really liked the blue when I first opened the picture, but then saw the red and LOVED it! I am a real red person anyway, but it looks great with your rug.

I love it!

The blue seems so calm and soothing. It makes the room feel really tranquil and cozy. I like the red as well and might use it during parties and other functions where you want the mood a bit more uplifting.

From a design site, colors and moods:

http://iit.bloomu.edu/vthc/Design/psychology.htm

Quote:
We associate red with love, valentines, danger, desire, speed, strength, violence, anger, emergency exit signs, stop signs and blood.

Red can evoke a fight-or-flight response, raise blood pressure and make the heart beat faster.

Blue represents peace, tranquility, calm, stability, harmony, unity, trust, truth, confidence, conservatism, security, cleanliness, order, loyalty, sky, water, cold, technology, and depression.

So...what feelings do you want to evoke in your home?

I like both of them Sorry to side-track here, but are they machine-washable? I need to find some cute slip covers for our couches & that is just a must. TIA
