A sofa can get a complete look with a set of pillows that blend in the background or a single pillow which brings out the simplicity and texture of the sofa. A single pillow is for those who prefer minimalist ways to design their place. It can either be a cushion or a long lumbar pillow. Patterned pillows are often used to complement the colour of the sofa. Usually, white sofas are combined with different patterns of pillow-like zebra, stripes, dotted, geometrical figures etc. The arrangement of pillows also matters to create a fulfilled look.
Anytime you're arranging furniture you have to think about balance. When too many visually heavy things are on one side of the room the entire space looks unbalanced. Since sofas tend to be large in scale they take up quite a bit of visual space, and they require something of equal weight across from them to balance out the room. This is why you often see two chairs placed directly across from a sofa. Together the chairs balance out the weight of the sofa.
Sofas are big, so where they're placed can have a big impact on the traffic flow in the room. People should never have to awkwardly step around items in order to pass through a room. Nor should there be any tripping hazards. It's important to make sure that there are a couple of feet between the coffee table and sofa, and between the sofa and any chairs. Create a clear path so people can walk from one end of the room to the other without difficulty.
A sofa can also stand out even if it has a very simple color. To make sure that happens, you have to place against a contrasting background. In this case, for example, these two grey sofas sit on a white area rug so they stand out without featuring a bold color.
