Lighter vs. Darker Tone
The color of your sofa is one of the most important decisions you will make, as the sofa is typically the anchor piece of a room, and because the color is the first thing you notice! It is generally safer to pick a neutral color for a sofa or sectional; then you can add color and texture to the room with accessories like rugs, pillows and artwork. A sofa in darker tones may give you a more dramatic impact within a space and is less likely to show wear and tear. However, in a smaller room, a dark sofa might look too bulky unless your sofa is a color and tone similar to the carpet or the flooring. In contrast, lighter tones will give an airier feel to a room and are more likely to show off accessory pillows. Any kind of texture, even on lighter fabrics, will help to keep the look of the fabric fresher. Geometric designs and small textures might lend themselves to a more modern interior, whereas florals can go either way depending on scale of the pattern and colors within the fabric.
