The Beauty of Patterned Sofas

For quite some time now I have been hoping to walk into a store and see a patterned sofa.
I remember our first custom sofa, sea foam green with dusty rose flowers. I know, I know, I am dating myself! We were so excited about it and I remember a designer tried to talk us out of it and persuade us to purchase a white one. I loved that sea foam green floral for years! Eventually it was replaced with a beige sofa, then a green sofa and now a sandy cream sectional. All very safe choices!

As in all trends, we revisit styles time and time again but it has been awhile since we have seen big bold patterns on sofas.

I would love to have a client brave enough to include a white sofa with large brightly coloured flowers on it like this one. How happy would you be in this room from Design * Sponge?

The Blanche Sofa is a statement piece and yet not over the top. 
It is stunning with the small print wallpaper!


I love the drama of this room. The black & white rug draws your eye right to the black paisley in the sofa. From there you are drawn to the art work with a blend of all the tones in the sofa.
 Great pattern play Design * Sponge!

For those of you who are not quite so brave,
 here is a lovely subtle pattern on the Elinor Sofa from Hickory Chair.

So where do you stand? Are you brave enough to add a patterned sofa to your design scheme?
