One Sofa: Four Delightful Designer Looks
Thursday Apr 4 2019
Today we are excited to share with you four fabulous looks to spruce up your sofa! The season of spring is upon us and there is no better time to refresh your space (or sofa) with gorgeous throw pillows! Changing the look of your entire room can easily be achieved by simply switching out your throw pillows. Incorporating a pop-of-pattern, vibrant color and rich texture are essential elements for a well-balanced room, and you can include all of these elements within your throw pillows! Revamp your sofa with a few new plush pillows to create a chic designer look with ease.
By using varied throw pillows a sofa can take on many different looks, especially when starting with a versatile base. Starting with a neutral sofa allows for flexibility when you want to change up pattern and coloring in your home. As designers, we adore switching out and refreshing pillows, especially seasonally! The slightest change within coloring can create an entirely different ambiance within a room. Our suggestion for spring and summer months is to use lighter, brighter colors which feel rejuvenating, and keep richer color tones displayed for those cozy winter months. We are thrilled to show you some gorgeous designer looks that will inspire you to play around with patterned pillows.
There is nothing better than a fabulous fresh floral print showcased on a sofa! Floral prints are a classic way to add color and a punch of pattern to your room.
If you find it challenging to pair other pillows with a floral print, allow us to share a design secret! Use the varied coloring within the floral print itself to define your color palette within your room. Pulling out specific coloring in a main print is a great way to simplify selecting colors for other throw pillows and color accents in your room.
Neutrals are always a gorgeous way to display a relaxed and organic feel atop your sofa. Keeping with lighter subtle tones is a great way to pull a room together without having color being too invasive.
When we hear the word neutral, often times think "boring beige," and boring is not the case at all! Neutrals do not always have to be a solid beige color as nifty neutral patterns can create a beautiful vignette for your sofa. We love this light textured pillow that reminds us of a playful animal print. Luxurious leather throw pillows can also be an option when utilizing a neutral color palette. Leather is a timeless texture and always gives a presence of rich refinement.
Handsome plaids have made a huge presence within the design industry. A modern plaid is an enduring print that when combined with other playful patterns becomes an instant classic!
Pair sophisticated palids with a bold, larger-scaled print for a design savvy look. We adore this whimsical fabric with its moody blues and crisp refreshing presence.
Incorporating texture within your space is key to attain a welcoming and cozy look. Textured thow pillows will introduce plenty of visual interest without overwhelming your room.
Thick, chunky weaved pillows are so inviting and add tactile contrast! They give depth and dimension to your sofa, and we adore any added trimmings, tassels and fringe detailing on plush pillows. Oversized tassles and nubby textures are always a fun element to incorporate on your sofa!
Keep in mind to use varied sizes of throw pillows when dressing your sofa. This will help to achieve correct balance and scale within your room. We suggest using larger pillows such as a 24" pillow at the ends of your sofa. From there, you can mix in 22", 20" and 18" pillows for eye-pleasing proportions.
Placing an unexpected lumbar pillow with designer detailing can add a punch of personality. Throw pillows can also be a form of art, so be bold in your pillow selections!
As designers, we gently remind our clients to remember that the inside of a pillow is just as important as what is on the outside! At The Black Goose Design, our throw pillows are made from the highest-quality fabrics and are always filled with a goose down insert. Using a down fill insert will give you that plush, plump yummy designer look that a regular polyester fill just cannot. A down fill insert will remain fluffed, full and look fabulous on your sofa!
