So you Found your Perfect Sofa, now what? How to Complete your Room After Selecting your Sofa.

You are furniture shopping and you found your dream sofa! It looked stunning in the showroom accessorized to perfection. The sofa is now in your living room but it doesn’t give you the same feeling it once did when it was the in store. Have no fear… you can fall in love with your sofa once again by completing your room with accent pieces and accessories; here’s how!


So you’re starting with your sofa which is essentially a blank canvas…now what? Start with inspiration! We recommend selecting a rug, piece of artwork, or accessory that you absolutely love and want incorporated in your room. From there, we’ll pull the colors for other coordinating accessories and consider the texture to bring a variety into your room.

For example, if you start with an inspiring rug then choosing pillows, accessories and artwork that pull from your rug’s colors will give the room a cohesive look and feel. Once you have selected your inspiration piece it is easy to decide on a color palette for your room!

Accent Pieces

Now it’s time to add accent furniture that will make that sofa shine even more. Cocktail tables, ottomans, end tables, and accent chairs are great way to complete the room. Consider your room’s shape and size and make sure you are filling it with items in the right scale. Accent chairs are the perfect opportunity for you to get creative with colors and patterns. Decide what style you are going for and choose pieces and fabrics based off the mood you want to set within the room.

Now that you have all of your furniture pieces in your room it’s time to decorate. The key to having a perfectly dressed room is layering it with textures and colors. Choose throw pillows that are different sizes and scales of pattern. Add a throw pillow that has a bit of texture to add depth to your sofa. A great way to break up the room is by adding a coffee table with your favorite decor on top. Adding greenery to your space helps to open up your room to give it a light and airy feel.
