All over pattern? Yes. Dress it up with plain pillows? Yes. A neutral graphic layered with other neutrals? Yes, yes, yes! Ok, so maybe a printed sofa is a bit of a stretch for you. But I’m here to hold your hand and tell you yes, you can do it. And you can do it in so many wonderful, beautiful, pretty ways that I assure you, the initial appeal will not wear off. I recently ordered my own first piece of custom furniture, (SO EXCITING!!!), and let me tell you after helping other people embrace their vision it is so much fun to create something just a little on the wild side for moi. For me, it’s tame, really. A turquoise chair and a half. Not that crazy, and besides it will meld with the rest of my stuff, so stay tuned for photos when that baby gets here in 6-12 weeks!
So back to the all over patterned sofa idea…florals, botanicals, geometric designs, each one of them holds their own level of beauty and interest. If you intend the sofa to be somewhat of a focal point then pick something that speaks to you in a loud yet memorable fashion. Let it be colourful. Find a print that you can’t stop thinking about and do it. If anyone needs help designing a custom sofa message me and I will show you some amazing fabrics. Until then look at how the patterned sofa works in the photos I have procured for you today. I won’t tell you which one is my favourite just yet.
Vintage styled fabric sofas can create an interesting little time warp in an otherwise modern looking room. Oh, and check out the rectangular pillows. I so love them!
This one here is my favourite. Only the back is done in a pattern. Love this! Combined with an array of printed pillows this sofa is so fun!
Wow, right? Holy pattern Batman! I applaud the proud owner of this sofa for his or her tenacity and comittment to the print. I wonder if it was an instant, oh my god I have to have this fabric all over my sofa! Or a debatable thing that went on for weeks before the final committment was made. Hmm…
And there you have it! Some super cute ideas for a patterened sofa. You can see how the chevron print was carried elsewhere in the room pictured above to tie the scheme together, for me it is a bit much, but the idea of painting a ghost of a whisper of a smidge of the print somewhere else in the space is a good one.
