More furniture opinions

With rearranging the furniture we (my mom, sis and I) were able to come up with some valuable sitting space. We have a little bay window area that I am going to put a round pedestal table and 2 wood chairs (a great find at a store that was going out of business) but am in need of more seating. I thought I would put an upholstered settee in the area to make it a comfy place for me to work on my computer. I think I have narrowed it down to 2 options:

Option 1 -- a cheaper settee that is 49" long with this print. This may be too wild for my taste but I could add some neutral white pillows or something. There is one other color option (a light tan) but I am concerned that it may get stained.

Option 2: A more expensive white slipcovered (easy removable and washer safe) which is a little bigger 56" and would sit perfectly in the space. I like the little ruffles around the edges and the wheels on the legs. I would totally pick this one but it is almost twice as much so I am not sure if I love it enough to pay more for it. So, what do you all think? Option 1 or option 2.

I like option 1
take a chance and be daring you could always get a slipcover if you decide after awhile it isn't you

I agree with Melissa.

I really love the 2nd one too, but the white...eesh. Very pretty, but again it WILL be more work to clean. I'd go with the first one: cheaper, funky, and add the pillows.

Good grief! Find something a little more desert colored! The first one isn't quite you and the other one is WHITE! Hello? you have 4 FOUR children? don't boys live at your house???? ;-)

I have to say I like #1 way more than #2. In the right space with the right furniture it would be great -- but is it you? Would you be happy with it? For me the the wheeled legs of #2 give it a cheap or a less classy feel, which is totally ironic since it is way more expensive. I think you are brave to even consider white, but I wouldn't go there. Good luck!
