Every week we research new product categories and bring our final picks into the office, where we haggle and decide which ones make the final list. Everything is based on quality, appearance, and price. These are what we would choose for our own home.
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.
