Yes, it’s true! You can give your sofa a subtle but effective new look by switching out the legs. Most sofas sold these days are not made of a single frame construction. In many cases the sofa seats, backs and arms are manufactured as one piece and then the legs are screwed in after. So if you want to make a change it’s really easy. Can’t find new legs you like? Simply spray paint the old ones to a new color and you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the difference.
The easiest and likely least expensive option is to get some new throw pillows. Throw pillows have the power to transform the ambiance in almost unlimited ways. You can play with pattern, shape, size and material. If you currently have something neutral or dark go for bright and bold; if you’ve got a floral pattern try something geometric; and if you have a material that’s rough opt instead for something soft. Throw pillows come in every imaginable style so there’s no limit to what you can do.
To achieve a Scandi-inspired, minimalist look, pair a set of slouchy square pillows in one corner of the sofa (preferably one solid and one patterned), and prop a smaller, rectangular-shaped pillow in the center of the other cushion. Instead of predictably tucking a single pillow into the corner of your sofa, why not take inspiration from Cottage Cloth and place a set facing inward? We love her choice of contrasting striped fabric, too.
