Nowadays, living room design tends to go a bit further than the traditional straight line look, with two matching sofas and a fireplace in the middle. That’s great and all, but, especially with the rise of the television, the modern home tends to be laid out differently. A side effect of this is less mirrored sofas; although they can still look just as great as they used to in a different setting. Here’s 3 ways to go bold and bring back the matching sofa trend.
Sofa & Armchair, BFFs! Smaller spaces in modern living rooms often just don’t fit two full length sofas, no matter how they’re placed. The solution? Bring back the good old armchair! Match your armchair and sofa with the same colours and fabric; they can then either be placed side by side or at a right angle to each other. Complete the look by popping a stylish rug and table in there!
Only match the cushions Nobody wants their space to look too matchy matchy, there’s a certain amount of “effortless” that needs to be snuck in there as well. If you’re too scared to take the plunge and match both sofas, go for two different sofas and only match the cushions. If you’re going to do this, pick two sofas with the same or similar design (or with similar colours) for the best results.
Make your sofas your centrepiece The best way to show off a pair of matching sofas is to give them the wow factor. The easiest way to do that is to use bold or bright colours. Extra points if you can get a matching colour scheme going with the rest of the room. We love blue sofas with a mostly white room, or white sofas with a mostly wooden/nature inspired room.
