While we know our sofas look great on their own, some of our favorite interior design options include sofa accessories. Accessorizing a sofa is a pretty simple endeavor. While you’ve got a ton of options, the two primary choices are pretty easy to understand and implement: pillows and blankets.
One of the easiest ways to bring a dash of life to your sofa is to drape a blanket over the top. Since most leather and microfiber sofas are monochromatic, adding a colored blanket or textile can give the sofa some extra personality and throw a touch of variety into your living room.
If you want to get even more creative, try throwing on a few pillows. Experiment and feel free to get a little out there with your choices. Try different colors, different sizes, and different patterns to really get the look you like.
And, of course, there are plenty of ways to play with your sofa’s accessories simply depending upon where you place it. Placing it by the windowsill allows you to incorporate the effects of natural sunlight and add plants, sculptures and other decorations. Or place a small coffee table or nightstand next to it to achieve a similar effect.
Accessorizing your sofa is easy, but don’t go overboard. At the end of the day, sofas are for sitting.
