If you want to make a garnishing statement, place a red sofa in your living‐area. Red is bold also sketches the eye. When you decide for red, your sofa becomes a focal point as well as signature piece. The best manner to furnish a living‐area with a red‐sofa depends on your decorating variety.
A red sofa is flawless for a modern‐living‐area, plus the look performs perfect when you mix it with neutrals. For other large surfaces such as walls, window treatments, floors with furniture‐stick with white, black also white, or a monochromatic range of colors in shades of gray or brown. You could use solids, textures together with patterns for fabric, rugs also walls. For occasional furniture, opt for a mix of glass, metal as well as woods with medium to high‐gloss finishes. Pop the red with two or three small‐scale accents of red, such as an art‐glass vase, a lamp finial or a painting with red.
For a snug cottage look, integrate a red sofa with upholstered chairs, pillows plus window treatments in a mix of fabric prints. Floral chintz, ticking stripes, checks, plaids with feminine mini‐prints are all charming options. Roughly half of the patterned‐fabrics must contain a touch of red. If you want to add solids in other colors to the mix, opt for solid cotton or textured chenille. For wooden furniture, mix rough‐hewn primitives with straight‐lined, shaker‐inspired tables together with curvier pieces sporting scallops or turned farmhouse legs.
Set a hooked or twisted rag rug on the floor. Accessorize with collections of vintage china, majolica or primitive portraits. To make a red sofa work in a conventional space, ground the area with an Oriental rug that has red as an accent color, rather than a background color. At a minimum, choose a rug large enough to serve the entire seating area. Use one of the lighter colors from the rug as your wall color, either as solid paint or tone‐on‐tone striped or damask wallpaper.
Pull a couple of chairs a matching pair or two dissimilar manners into the seating area. Do not cover the chairs with solid red, but it’s fine to use patterned fabric with red also other colors from your rug. Repeat the chair fabric for window treatments as well as throw pillows, or choose new fabrics that coordinate with the rest. Add cherry, walnut or mahogany occasional tables, ideally antiques or reproductions inspired by 17th‐ through 19th‐century styles. Accent the space with a mix of English, Italian plus Asian lamps with accessories.
