Coordinate Adjectives


I am receiving editing advice that suggests I need to place a comma between:

"big green couch" and "little white dots."   Using the Chicago Manual of Style rule 5.90, it seems that a comma is not necessary based on non-coordinating adjectives.


I welcome your opinion and interpretation of this rule.

We'll need to see the sentence in order to know what you are talking about.
