A sofa of any color can be beautifully integrated into your space if you treat it as another color from your color scheme. This means adding accessories or prints in the same color as the sofa, to spread the color around the room. A sofa is a large expanse of fabric, by repeating pops of the same color as an accent, it can balance your room.
DO consider how you’ll use the sofa – and be honest! Is it for TV watching, curling up with a good book or formal entertaining? There's no point in getting a stiff and formal sofa if you plan to put your feet up and watch TV, nor do you want your guests to sink into the cushions and not be able to get up when you're entertaining. DO buy the best quality you can afford. A sofa is a big investment and you want it to last. Remember, a sofa of average quality should last at least 10 years while a high-end sofa should last up to 25.
The sofa is the biggest piece in any living room, so it’s the first thing that needs to be placed. Sometimes you can walk into a room and it seems obvious where the sofa should go, but in other rooms, it's not so easy. As a general rule the sofa should be facing the focal point, but if there's no natural focal point what do you do? Here are some sofa placement tips to help you figure it out.
