In the search for your dream sofa, you will have to ask yourself the basic question:
Which sofa color suits me and my interior style?
After all, the furniture market has a huge selection of colors for sofas.
You can’t go wrong with classic shades like black and gray. They are very suitable for larger sofas. Smaller sofas may have more striking colors or wear a patterned fabric. Large sofas and sofa landscapes should have more subtle colors.
A white sofa is fully in trend. However, it is only conditionally recommended. Especially when children and pets use the sofa for romping, a beautiful white couch can quickly become a scuffed piece of furniture. But not only children and animals can become offenders. Colored clothing, such as jeans that have not been washed often, can also leave unsightly stains.
Black leather sofa is probably the classic and comes stylish and high quality. A black sofa, whether made of leather or fabric, requires larger, bright and light rooms. In front of a white wall, it looks classy and draws all the attention.
Combine accessories like sofa cushions, blankets and picture frames in complementary colors. So white and gray are the right colors here to create a harmonious interior.
Sofa cushions with black and white patterns are very suitable for black sofas
Tip: If your living room is rather small and dark, you should refrain from a black sofa. Otherwise, the sofa can look squat in the room.
Sofas in various warm shades of brown, such as chocolate, cognac to beige, have one thing in common: they radiate coziness and convey a sense of security. Brown is quite often chosen as a color for sofas for this reason. Especially in combination with the color white, the brown sofa forms a timeless interior style.
If you want to bring a little more color into the game, add green pillows and other small accessories. However, the green here should not be too dark.
But larger splashes of color also get along with your sofa in brown. 3 sofa cushions in matching colors give it a fresh touch.
A freestanding armchair or a colorful pouf are great as a combination object. But be careful: use colors only in limited quantities. The brown sofa should remain the eye-catcher and be complemented only by colorful nuances.
The gray sofa is your wild card. If you want it to be rather plain or your existing decor is already a colorful mix, go for a gray sofa. It fits into any living room. It looks understated, elegant and doesn’t take the focus away from other shades.
Colorful accessories such as blankets and sofa cushions can be combined at will.
The color green is the decoration and furnishing trend of 2022. A green sofa will liven up your living room. In combination with white walls and wooden furniture, such as a sideboard, immediately creates an atmosphere of well-being.
If a sofa in green is too daring for you, opt for a brown sofa and combine it with pillows in different shades of green. In front of a green wall, a brown Chesterfield sofa will look great.
Pastel shades, such as a delicate old pink, have been in vogue again and again since the 50s. They really come into their own in combination with rather plain furniture in white or cognac.
If the sofa is not too playful, it can be wonderfully combined with colorful accessories in other pastel shades. Light shades of green, yellow, mint and lilac fit perfectly. Other shades of pink are also suitable for a harmonious interior design.
Conclusion: colors for sofas there are (too) many
When buying a sofa, think about whether the piece of furniture fits in with your other furnishings and whether you necessarily want to follow a trend. Buying a sofa is probably an investment you don’t make very often. However, you can have the sofa reupholstered later.
