Styling to Complement your Sofa's Upholstery - Shop by Style

12 September 2017 | Category: Shop by Style | Tags: interior design, shop by style

When it comes to your lounge room, your sofa is the star of the show. From leather and leather-look to linen and other fabrics, the upholstery of your sofa will have an impact on the look and feel of your space.

It can also influence how your sofa should be styled, as different lounge cushions and homewares complement different upholstery types.

Whether you’re on the hunt for a new sofa or you’re not sure how to enhance your current one with the right accessories, we can help you choose the perfect upholstery for your needs and create the look you love! These are our top tips for decorating leather, leather-look, and fabric lounges:

The name:

Cool Yet Comfy – perfect for leather sofas

The feel:

Stylish, modern, comfortable

The look:

Soft furnishings that enhance the comfort of a leather sofa while adding style to the space

You’ll love this look if:

  • you want to enhance the look of your leather sofa with simple touches
  • you want to bring style and personality to your lounge room
  • you want to bring a sense of warmth and comfort to your sofa

Sleek and low-maintenance, leather sofas are great for homes with children who may be prone to spilling things! While they’re super easy to wipe clean, they can also get sticky in summer, and cold in winter. This makes a stylish throw the perfect addition (we love the trendy yet timeless Ombre Throw), adding comfort and flair to any leather couch.

The name:

Textured Pastels – great for leather-look sofas

The feel:

Simple, sophisticated, timeless

The look:

Texture and a soft colour palette that stays in style as the seasons change

You’ll love this look if:

  • you want to find a look that doesn’t go out of date as new trends emerge
  • you want to bring character to your lounge room without spending a fortune
  • you want to add some texture to your leather-look sofa

Another easy way to add interest to a leather or leather-look sofa is with textured throw cushions (the Textured Velvet Cushion brings dimension and a subtle splash of colour). Leather-look couches give you the look of leather without the price tag. These are a great option for those who may not wish to use authentic leather, and with each manufacturing advance, their lifespan gets closer to real leather sofas too.

The name:

Brighten Your Day – ideal for fabric sofas

The feel:

Fun, warm, welcoming

The look:

Pops of colour and fun prints to bring life into your space

You’ll love this look if:

  • You want to add personality to your sofa without overpowering the design
  • you want to create a fun and inviting space
  • you want to be able to easily change the look of your lounge room as your tastes change

Linen and fabric sofas are pretty versatile when it comes to decorating. We love the addition of fun, bright cushions, like the Java and Sloane cushions. Be sure to give your throw cushions a spray with a fabric protector when you spray your couch – this should be done every change of season to keep your fabric items protected from spills and stains.

And of course, no matter the upholstery of your sofa, you can’t go past a large rug to anchor the space, and a convenient side table for resting your favourite mug or glass. The soft, neutral beige colourway of the Molten Rug allows it to work with any existing colours, while the Silverwood Z Pedestal Side Table offers a unique twist on a traditional lamp table.

Soft furnishings and homewares are a simple way to dress up your lounge, whether it’s leather, leather-look, or fabric.
