How To | 5 Quick and Easy Tips to Style Your Sofa

We all can agree that one of the best feelings after a long day is sitting down on the sofa and relaxing! The seating in a living area serves as much more than just a place to sit. Sofas are where we congregate to talk about our day, to watch movies, to have game nights, eat delicious snacks, and much more. They play a big role in many households and deserve to be designed and accessorized in a beautiful and comfortable way. Sit back and relax as we give you some sofa inspiration!

Select & understand your sofa

The first and most important step is choosing a sofa! What sofa style suits your preference and needs best? The style of your sofa will help to determine the decor that is best suited for it. Two very important factors to consider when buying a new sofa are the size of your room and the needs of your family. If you use the sofa a lot and have a big family and a spacious living area, the Sonia 3 Seater Chaise Sofa would be perfect for you. The neutral metal color can be accessorized in so many ways.

If you already own a sofa, it is good to know the measurements and the true color of it. When you get ready to accessorize and style it, you’ll know exactly what to look for! Neutral sofas pair well with bold accessories.  Deep sofas pair well with large accessories. Understanding your sofa is an essential step in styling it appropriately.

Throw pillows

The obvious first way to add a new layer of decor to your sofa is to adorn it with throw pillows and cushions. For a classic throw pillow look, purchase pillows that compliment the color and size of your sofa. Pillows that are too large for your couch will end up on the floor more than the couch because they will take up all of the sitting space. Too many pillows will result in the same. Start out with just a few pillows and slowly build until you have reached the perfect amount.

If you love holiday decor, invest in seasonal cushions to compliment your sofa and general cushion stash. This will also allow you to change up your decor regularly so that you don’t get bored with your sofa’s typical style. The Alfred 3 Seater Sofa in Red is perfect for accessorizing with themed pillows. The bright red fabric can be complemented by the multi-color Tracks Oblong Cushion on bright spring and summer days.

Sofa table or console

Adding a stable surface on or around your couch adds a new dynamic to the style of it and your living area. Consoles and sofa tables are very functional because you can sit drinks on it.

Ottoman or Pouf

Add more comfort to your sofa and living area by incorporating a stylish pouf. Ottomans and poufs allow you to rest your feet and provide extra seating without taking up too much space.  When not in use, stack the poufs off to the side and let them serve as decor.  Poufs are especially beneficial in homes with not a lot of space. The intricate texture and design of the Shelbi Woolen Ottoman would pair very well with the solid dust blue Denmark 3 Seater Sofa.

Throw blanket

Last, but not least, is a throw blanket. A throw is obviously useful to keep you warm when it is cold in your house. Throws also add a level of sophistication and class to a sitting area. They can be stored in a basket beside the sofa or on the back or arm of the sofa. A textured neutral throw like the Light Grey Pom Pom Throw can complement several sofas and living spaces.
