Perhaps this should be the first step when choosing a sofa. Decide where the sofa will be placed so you know what to look for. If you usually enjoy sitting in front of the TV then that’s where you should place the sofa. But perhaps you enjoy entertaining guests and chatting with them in which case you should create a cozy lounge area in front of the fireplace or facing the bar. Be careful however because placing a sofa parallel to the fireplace in a long and narrow room can make the room even narrower.
A dark shade of purple only featured by one element in the room such as the sofa in this case can be a welcomed detail that contrasts with the beige walls, grey accents and soft lighting. As glamorous and royal as purple can be, it’s a color that can also be used when creating a casual décor. This is possible when opting for an eclectic design that includes a variety of accent colors, prints and patterns.
It’s important to determine your priorities when selecting the upholstery material for a sofa. For example, if you want the living room to look elegant and classy, you can get a leather sofa. Fabric is considered more casual. The most durable fabric options include cotton, linen and synthetic microfiber. If you have pets or small kids, stay away from materials that stain easily or are difficult to maintain.
The light blue floor lamp is definitely an unexpected detail in this eclectic living room. Sitting by the purple sofa, it cheers up the room. It’s the type of playfulness that a lot of eclectic designs take advantage of. Opt for a purple sofa for the living room if you wish to create an aristocratic décor. Having a fireplace helps a lot and so does the artwork if chosen right.
