How to match color in this photo ?

I have a composite photo of this image with the sofas shot separately against the arm chair and the girl. Now I want to match the color/tone of the armchair and the sofa.

What is the best and the easiest way to achieve this ?

Thanks, Ljupco

I'm a little confused here as the images you have shown are the same except for the crop factor the colour and tone are the same on both images!

Assuming you want to match a different image a couple of ways to try:
1. Place several colour samplers on each image in the same place and using curves adjust channels to match.
2. Investigate the Match Colour in Photoshop (Image>Adjustments>Match Colour

Yes, that sounds confusing, but I just wanted to add the big picture so as to have a general idea of what I'm trying to do.

I need to have the armchair the same color/tone as the sofas as they were shot seperately and the color needs to match.

Thanks for the advice, I'll give it a try

1. new color layer; sample color from armchair and paint/fill; make mask for target
2. new curve layer; place color samples; adjust RGB values to match; copy mask from previous layer.

Hi Buso,

I hope you won't be offended if I mention that the chair in front of the model is out of perspective with the rest of the furniture. I know this isn't meant to be a critique, but as you are concerned to get the colour match perfect, I expect the perspective is important too. Either you would need to enlarge the single chair or reduce the size (and perhaps orientation) of the other items.

Hope this helps.
