There are so many reasons why buying a sofa in a neutral tone is a wise choice. They are easy to design and you probably won’t regret your purchase a week later. Statement sofas? You are the opposite. However, there is a certain thrill you get from a bold, patterned, or colorful sofa that you can’t get from anything gray.
The challenge is to design your space so that the sofa stands out but doesn’t overwhelm the rest of your living room. But rest assured, it can be done. So, if you dream of a sofa that is far from safe, find out how it works.

Repeat the shadow

Highlight a work of art

Go wild with patterns
For the really brave, forget about subtle mixing with bold. Instead, own your eclectic style with an unexpected combination of patterns, colors, and artwork. Image about my domain
