Working with a Statement Sofa

Working with a Statement Sofa


If you've been shopping for sofas, you may already be thinking about a statement piece. A statement sofa can do so much for a room. Once you make this choice and find that fabulous sofa, your next step is using it to transform your space. When you are styling a room around a beautifully bold piece of furniture, you must allow the remarkable item to make the impact you intend. You may accomplish this by employing a few basic strategies.

Adhere to the Color Scheme

If color is the primary detail that makes your sofa outstanding, use that color throughout the rest of the space. A plush, vibrant purple sofa could be accented by hints of the same hue in the surrounding artwork, rugs, lamps, and window treatments. Don't overdo it though; allow the color scheme to blend in a subtle and organic way.

Understated Accessories

If your statement piece is made with a bold pattern, make sure that the other objects in the room are understated and elegant. A sofa with a dramatic zebra print can be gorgeously complemented by solid, mellow hues.

Lighting and Placement

Make the most of area lighting. You could suspend modern fixtures from the ceiling directly above your sofa. If you have picture windows in your space, position the piece near them to showcase it with natural light.

Let Your Creativity Flow

You don't need to follow a specific set of guidelines if you don't want to. If you feel like mixing bold patterns and colors, go ahead and do it! If you mix and match an eclectic array of patterns and styles, a unique piece of furniture can look even more charming.

Statement sofas offer an endless range of design possibilities. Make your living room pop with the addition of a spectacular sofa. When you put some thought into the space around it, you can create a look that is anything but predictable.
