Change of Pace for My Everyday Place

I've been ready to redo my sunroom/office for a long time. My desk, while an incredible piece {see the table on the far left, the top opens and it's a very organized workspace} has a much too small work surface. I also subscribe to the thought that a sunroom's decor should be light and airy. Frankly the crimson, hunter green, and gold decor is much too rich for this particular room -although I loved it when it was in my living room at my old place.
Here are some of my inspiration photos. I'm kind of leaning towards a rustic Swedish style.

I've already bought the desk, rug, and the rocking chair (photo makes it light blue but it's really white).
I've been drawn towards the infamous Ghost Louis chair (top left), but realize it'd be very modern for the rustic room. I'm on the fence still. But the benefit to the chair is that it wouldn't obstruct the windows like the current chair.

And I need help on the sofas! The top is a cream velvet, the middle is a find from Copy Cat Chic, and the bottom one is a more traditional light beige.

It will be a while before the room comes together, but I'm just thankful I have a bigger desk!

I like the top one. I don't know why. :)

I would go with the bottom. The top is too dark, and your inspiration rooms seem to have the white instead of cream. Also, velvet is extrememly difficult to clean, so unless you are planning on getting a slipcover, I would not go with #1. The middle is my next favorite, but I think the bottom will be more transitional for you and lend itself to different styles should you get tired of Swedish and want to go shabby chic or cottage. my thoughts to take or leave. :)

well, I'm going the slipcover route...if it were just me the velvet would be great texture-wise; the bottom would be a nice white traditional choice...but with my child now trying to climb on everything, I have to anticipate baby juice on whatever furniture I buy
