Select and understand the sofa

If you are considering buying a new sofa, consider a few key points such as your needs, your preferences, your style and of course your budget. For example, for a large family or space, a sectional sofa might be a smart choice. Also, if you already own a sofa, understand the style, color or mood it represents.

So suppose your sofa has neutral colored upholstery, then you can add a few throw pillows in bright colors or similar neutral throw pillows to add a sophisticated and united look. Understanding your sofa will give you the right direction to choose the right accessories!

Think couch decor and you instantly list throw pillows and rightly so. Accent pillows instantly add style and drama to even an old couch or sofa. Accent pillows are the best way to breathe new life into your seating arrangement on a minimal budget.

For a classic look, add throw pillows that complement the color of your sofa. Mix and match accent pillows to give your sofa a fashion-forward look. Opt for an odd number of pillow settings (two plain pillows, two prints, and a mini accent pillow) to form an eye-pleasing pillow arrangement.

Of course, a blanket is a must-have textile or piece of fabric that keeps you warm while enjoying a cozy moment on the couch. But, a fabulous looking throw also instantly enhances the look of the sofa and also introduces a layered look. If your sofa is plain or textured, a colorful throw will make a bold choice and vice versa.

Generally, it is the seating area or area that is considered the focal point of your living room. Because that’s where you spend most of your time, carry out daily activities and receive guests. Now, if you placed the sofa directly against the wall, elevate it with some lovely wall art, decorative items, and accents.

A large scale wall art or one with a set looks fabulous against the couch. If you don’t want to add a decorative piece to the wall, you can also highlight the wall with an accent color!

Whether it’s a one-seat sofa or a sectional, your seating will remain incomplete if you don’t add a nice coffee table against it. A coffee table is of course a functional piece of furniture but adds a collective aspect to the seating area. Enhance the look of your coffee table with a decorative vase, decorative tray, coffee table books and a conversation starter piece (it can be a keepsake, a mini decorative item… pretty much anything that has a story, a history, a sculptural aspect to it), you will unknowingly enhance the look of your sofa at the same time!

Poufs or ottomans

A sofa or sofa is the main functional piece of your living room or any given space. To introduce a more collective look, you can add a set of ottomans or ottomans and place it next to the sofa. These relatively small but functional pieces of furniture work great as extra seating, decorative items, and even as a coffee table if they have a smooth surface. If your couch is plain, placing colorful and contrasting ottomans is a smart choice to introduce a splash of color, texture, and drama.
