The range of sofa can be pretty wide. Lots of shapes, finishes, dimensions and colours; what really makes unique a sofa is the personal combination of all these aspects.
When choosing a new sofa, picking the right covering is a crucial step. Mainly the choice must consider two aspects: functionality and aesthetic.
Functionality mainly refers to easy maintenance: dark colours or slightly melange, for example, have less probability to get stained.
The same is true for some special fabric like jacquard and lampassi.
But colour is an extremely important aesthetic aspect. It can be chosen in contrast with the rest of the room, or in line with it, so as to recreate a soft and smooth effect. First thing is to determine the dominant colour, then it will be easier to match different nuance and creative patterns.
Whereas soft tones give the impression of a wider space, the dark tones are more eye catching. If your choice is this second option, it is highly recommended to add some colourful details like pillows, embrasse, wall trimmings and frames, vases and other decorative elements.
The greys are perfect for contemporary spaces, even together with more vibrant elements in red or yellow, so as to obtain both a classic and original setting.
Green couches are not for anyone; aesthetically very beautiful, fresh and luminous, they are able to transform a neutral space, in a modern and romantic room. A white and woody setting brings them to their maximum expression.
For those who love pink but want to avoid a “bonton” effect, a stripy black and white couch is the best solution in order to balance the dominant nuance. An additional idea is to match a white or grey sofa: together with the pink atmosphere, these two colours give an extra sense of refinement.
Powder blue is commonly suggested for sofas. Perfect for a shabby chic style, this colour perfectly matches different kinds of fabric, like wool, linen and canvas. Best results are obtained combining a pastel blue sofa with mustard coloured furniture elements.
Last but not least, white and beige sofas are the perfect choice to warm up the atmosphere. This kind of couches can perfectly host details with graphic motifs or exotic patterns.
Choosing is not easy, but with the right inspiration and a bit of audacity, the result will be achieving a perfect comfort experience.
