Non matching sofa and loveseat
A question that came up a few times is: How do I Incorporate my matching furniture set into my living room so that it does not look like a showroom?
Its such a good trick. The sinuous curves and wood trim of your newly-acquired antique suggests ways to harmonize your overall scheme.
Consider your accessories, too; no need to find a matching pair of lamps. When young marrieds combine households, creating such harmony can be a challenge for decor throughout the home. Use the largest modern corner unit you can, preferably running wall to wall for an almost built-in look.
Mismatched sofa and loveseat
Managing Nonmatching Sofas In online or print decor resources, examples of matching furniture pieces abound, with a sofa and loveseat or sofa and chairs, covered in matching or different fabrics. You can always add matching pillows if you want to bring a little more harmony later. Patterned window drapes can echo the colors of nonmatching couches, enlarging the overall color scheme without adding too much detail. Besides the physical space, keep the visual space wide open by using light colors for chunkier units like a TV cabinet or the coffee table top. The various furniture pieces in a room should have some thread of continuity running between them. For example, buying a bed, two matching side tables and a matching dresser — all in the same color and finish, all with the same look. You can really transform a couch by adding a throw, blanket or tapestry fabric to the back of the couch.
Managing Nonmatching Sofas In online or print decor resources, examples of matching furniture pieces abound, with a sofa and loveseat or sofa and chairs, covered in matching or different fabrics. A blue tweed couch and a solid burgundy one, for example, benefit from throw pillows in the same blue, burgundy and ivory stripe.
Two different color sofas in living room
Two loveseats. Unifying Stylistic Detail A greater challenge emerges when your two couches come from two distinctly different design periods. Rather than including side chairs in the room, choose dining chairs that coordinate with your living room look and pull them in when needed for guests, leaving more free space the rest of the time. If the sofas are different solid colors, let those large blocks of color lead the room's overall color scheme. Check out Houzz. Of course, not every tight living area is conveniently wide open on one or two sides, as in the first example. If the love seat and the sofa are going to sit very near to each other, sometimes its best to have them be identical and then add variety through pillows, throws, area carpet, and accessories. Painting walls a misty, gray-toned white unifies couch colors. Using a straight sofa with two chairs rather than a sectional is a great solution for a conversational sitting room with no TV. You can even use an antique or existing piece of furniture as the starting point for your new room. In decades gone by, the traditional thing to do was to purchase a furniture suite of matching pieces.
Maybe the arms of all your upholstered pieces will be similar, but as in the Sam Moore photo above you choose pieces with different fabrics and different back styles and details. In an especially tight room, an armless sectional can give you truly maximum seating without looking overstuffed.
