The sofa itself shouldn’t be the center of attention in the living room. So don’t try to make it stand out more than it has to by choosing a very bold color. Also, trendy patterns are not a great option either. Pattern and color should come from the throw pillows or other accent elements.
Another option is a classic arrangement with four armchairs placed around a coffee table. If you’re worried that it won’t be enough space for everyone to sit down, this problem can be easily solved with some stools, ottomans, poufs or foldable chairs. They can be scattered around the house and only brought in when needed or they can be safely stored somewhere.
If you want the sofa to stand out from the rest of the room’s décor but you still want to somehow rely to it, you can choose a color that’s complementary to the accent shades you’ve used throughout the room. For example, here we have a green sofa. It has two red lamps flanking it on the sides and a painting with red background placed just above it.
Here we have another example of a sofa that seamlessly fits into the living room’s décor thanks to its color. This pale shade of pastel green, almost white, matches the rest of the décor beautifully, the walls are beige and the whole living room is decorated with transparent and bright elements.
