The Chesterfield Sofa

If you are into classic designs and furniture that is built to last (literally a lifetime!) the Chesterfield sofa is the sofa for you. Made originally in Britain out of real leather (and later other fabrics such as canvas) for the Earl of Chesterfield, this sofa is a design classic and one of the most recognizable pieces of furniture in the world. It is highly sought after and goes with any type of color scheme. Whether you are a fan of plain white walls, or even green walls, the Chesterfield seamlessly blends in and compliments any type of color palette and decorating style.

Velvet Sofas

One of my favorite fabrics for sofa upholstering, the velvet sofa is the perfect sofa to add warmth and comfort to any space. When decorating a living room, you want it to feel inviting and comforting, and playing with textures is one of the things you need to keep in mind. Velvet is soft, warm, and super cozy and using this type of fabric for a sofa is an easy way to warm up a space. Velevet sofas add a certain level of sophistication to a room that is great if you are looking to get that expensive look-for-less.

Neutral Colored Sofas

If you are on the market for a new sofa to buy, you really can’t go wrong with a neutral colored sofa. Taupe, beige, and cream sofas and always a safe color to choose for your living room sofa. Even if you are a fan of color, you can easily bring your living room to life with brightly colored pillows and throw blankets. Keeping your sofa a neutral tone is a smart way to create a blank canvas and then build up your decorating with accessories and artwork.
