We are building a new home, have two-tone gray walls, wood floors etc. What color couch would spark it up?

We are 81, have some great-grandchildren who would climb on it, cost is better under $1,000, need something that would stay looking nice.....not spot easily.

How about a reddish orange? It looks terrific with gray, especially dark gray.
