Finding a tufted, ruby red, velvet sofa for less than $500 is already a rarity, but when something this on-trend comes in for less than $400, it's really something to write home about. Emerald green is always a good bet this time of year, but this gorgeous sofa is so timeless it's sure to work in any season.
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.
This unique three-seater sofa may be boxy by design, but it’s definitely not boring. The rectangular, dark-wood frame sits low to the floor, making the couch a perfect fit atop a plush rug in a minimal room. Prefer leather? Upgrade to the luxurious top-grain version for $1,200 more.
