Deep Red Sofas

Our reliance on safe neutrals is finally changing and we have become more daring. Only few colours are more striking than a deep red, whether this is a super soft finish of a red velvet sofa or a classic red leather sofa.

Trendy Pink Sofas

Pink is not just for girls! A sofa in a pale pink, or even as a great accessory pink footstool, can add a gentle touch of colour to your room.

For the bold and brave, set your pink sofa against a brightly coloured or papered contrasting feature wall, then accessorise with an additional contrasting colour.

If you’d prefer a more relaxed look, team with tonal colours from the same colour palette – for example, a fuschia sofa with pale pink, purple and lilac tones to create a relaxing, girly space.

Cool Blue Sofas

Blue can look cool and detached when seen as a stand-alone colour but if you combine a dark blue sofa with gold in accessories, such as a side table, cushions or throws, you can create a truly sophisticated atmosphere in your living room.

Green reminds us of spring! Whether you like a green leather sofa or prefer a super comfy green velvet sofa, the choice of different hues of green is vast, from stunning teal and emerald to more subtle sage and olive green.

Luxurious Gold Sofas

Gold is a truly elegant colour and it's so tempting to add gold to everything you see. The magic, however, is in subtle gold accents, in combination with other strong colours such as green and blue.

To those who say you need to choose between pattern or colour, we say, you’re wrong! A patterned, coloured sofa is a chic way to update a period property, especially if you choose a flock or damask material. A geometric print, on the other hand, is a subtle nod to modernity. Floral patterns are perhaps a touch more opulent, especially when soft, strokable fabrics are used.

Conclusion

Brightly coloured sofas are so versatile and create a modern, fresh look when combined with classic accessorises.

If you are thinking about taking the plunge and buying a brightly coloured sofa, then order some fabric samples to see what colour and fabric you'd like to bring together.
Soft fabrics like velvet are susceptible to shading, where the material looks darker or lighter depending on the position of furniture. These variations in colour add to the impressive effect you can achieve with bright colours.
