I would mix black and brown furniture with no problem, but I am a person who wears black and brown together regularly. The only thing that would keep me from doing it with the pieces that you are talking about is the light colored pillows on the back of the sectional.
Thanks for the Costco idea but we don't have one near by anyway. We are really trying to stick with a larger local store that has something in stock that we can sit on/see/feel/touch.
The exact one in the photo was just an idea of the shape and style, not the exact one we are considering. And i'm actually ok w/a separate pillow design for the back. That's what our couch and loveseat have now and they have held up awesome over the past 9 years (even with the dog sitting up on them all day).

I have that exact couch (Yay Ashley!) and I love it, so much! The pillows have held up nicely, but I also try to rotate them around every week or so.
The couch cleans up very nicely, too. Plus it's super comfy. Yay!
As for the black recliner. What do you think you'd replace first? You'd probably buy a new recliner before you bought a new couch, right? Then go with couch and worry about the recliner later. Put a pillow and throw blanket on it. No one is going to come to your house and roll their eyes at your black recliner and brown couch.
