West Elm´s Tillary sofa is a design classic, and for good reason. The soft tufting brings a classic sophistication, and the armless, low-slung style helps make a tiny apartment feel expansive. Because this sofa comes in so many shades, you can pick a color that suits your style. Light white fabric goes great against a dark wall, or try a rich blue tweed to class up a breezy, sunny room.
If you’ve got a plain Jane sofa and you want it to look more formal a surefire way to do it is to add some nailhead trim. Simply determine the lines of the sofa you want to accent and then nail in the tacks (try to place them at even intervals of roughly ½ inch). Just be sure to choose a solid part of the frame so you’ve got a solid foundation to nail the trim into. And it should go without saying that you cannot do this on a slipcovered piece – only on one that’s upholstered.
Slip your sofa into something more comfortable (and more stylish!) in order to give it a fresh new look. Slipcovers aren’t as expensive as they used to be (although they’re still not cheap) and they’re available in a huge variety of fabrics and colors. You can have them custom made if you want the perfect fit, or you can buy something in a standard size for a looser fit. And if you have an IKEA sofa you’re in luck – there are a few companies who make slipcovers specifically for IKEA furniture.
