Modern Patterned Sofas


Have you ever felt that your living space lacks a little wow factor? A statement sofa can solve that problem in an instant – and a modern, patterned option will also inject a healthy dose of on-trend style. No matter what your tastes, there’s such a great variety of contemporary patterns available that you’re sure to find something that you adore, whether you go floral or geometric; bright and bold or subtle and neutral. Here are three reasons why we think patterned sofas are particularly marvellous


4 Reasons to Choose a Modern Patterned Sofa

1. Modern patterns can be subtle or bold

No matter what your tastes, there’s bound to be a modern patterned sofa out there that feels as though it was made just for you. With subtle, understated patterns that are embossed on the fabric, or bright and bold designs that are sure to grab the attention of everyone in the room, there’s a great variety out there to choose from.

2. Modern patterns are easy to decorate around

Though plain sofas may seem like the easy choice when it comes to pairing up soft furnishings, accessories and wallpaper with your sofa, pattern doesn’t have to be scary. Believe it or not, it’s actually quite easy to work with a patterned sofa! As long as you stick to a colour palette, or choose contrasting colours, your accessories will look beautiful when teamed up with your sofa. Check out our blog post on how to decorate with a patterned sofa for some more tips!

3. Modern patterns are a great focal point

Equally, if you’d rather spend less time decorating around your sofa, and more time actually sitting on it, a modern patterned sofa can do all the hard work of decorating for you. When placed against a neutral wall and accompanied by just a few accessories, a patterned sofa can ensure a room still looks stylish with minimal effort required by you!
