You've finally bought a new couch. Congrats! After mulling over fabric swatches, testing out cushions, and debating over mid-century modern versus English roll-arm, you've committed, placed the order, and now your new favorite piece of lounge furniture has arrived in your home. What's next? Like most people, you've probably opted for some sort of neutral base fabric for your sofa. We love a bright or patterned accent piece any day, but for a big investment item like a sofa, we tend to recommend going with something that you won't get tired of in just a couple months. So neutrals- everything from cream to soft greys and blues- are the best option to set the scene and create a blank canvas for fun accessories.
So, now you get choose everything you put ON the sofa. These are the things that make it soft and comfy, the accents that add color, texture and personality. This is, after all, the place you'll probably spending tons of time, whether it's hanging out together on the weekend or entertaining friends around the coffee table. We're talking plush throw pillows, snug blankets that you can't wait to curl up in, and other bits and pieces that add some flair to your seating area.
Here are some of our faves:
