There are many reasons why you are looking for a blue sofa. You want to match the sofa with your current decor and furniture, or you just like the colour. Blue comes in so many beautiful hues that you are guaranteed to find the right one for you.
Trendy Navy Blue
Setting a real trend in our homes, a navy blue sofa can make a true statement in your living room. Navy blue is a greatly versatile colour that works well with a vast range of colours and can either be used as a neutral or background for brighter, bolder hues, or as an accent colour.
Team your navy blue sofa with whitewashed walls, painted floorboards, and flashes of rough, natural texture, such as raffia and rope, for a nautical feel or with colours in the same palette for a soothing, calming feel.
If you want to incorporate a navy blue sofa, combine it with white walls and plenty of cool, contrasting textures, like glass tables, shimmery cushions, and a few industrial-style accessories, like iron candlesticks, wooden crates and wicker baskets.
Blue is a calming, soothing, and tranquil colour, and in particular, light blue sofas retreat, which means they will make the room feel larger – a sneaky trick if you’re trying to furnish a smaller space.
Warmer blues with red tones, such as denim or ocean blue, will make the room feel smaller as they advance towards you - perfect for making a room appear cosier.
Royal blue in super soft velvet makes a velvet sofa the perfect combination of rich and deep blue. Match your blue velvet sofa with gold accessories to create a truly stunning effect.
Add depth, dimension, and interest to your room by choosing a patterned blue sofa. There are plenty of options – subtle patterns that you can only see up close or more dramatic striped and jacquard-print patterns.
For a comfy, cosy, seaside theme – perfect for kids’ bedrooms and playrooms – check out striped blue sofas in linen or cotton fabric (these are easy to clean and wash, especially important for messy kids!). Team it with plenty of soft, squashy cushions, a few cuddly sheepskin throws, and some seaside-inspired art for a lovely oceanic feel.
Blue sofas aren’t just for your living room – they can work brilliantly in virtually every room of the house. From the conservatory with plenty of bright, natural light, to a cosy snug with beanbags for the kids, it’ll brighten up any room of the house with very little effort.
Whether you’re shopping for an elegant velvet sofa to update your living room or a soft, cosy two-seater that’d make a comfy addition to a playroom, opting for a blue hue is guaranteed to make an impact.
