One Sofa, Three Ways

During a recent discussion with the ladies of JCR Design Group, they shared a common challenge among their clients. Selecting, and more importantly, committing, to a bold color or strong pattern is often met with hesitation. This is especially the case when the investment is significant (upholstery, area rugs, etc.). Clients tend toward  what they perceive as “safe” neutrals: gray, beige, tan and white.

Investing in a distinctive piece that you may tire of quickly isn’t a decision, practically speaking, that some are willing to make. And for those of us in the industry who are exposed to a constant parade of new product, we completely understand.

Jenny and her team suggest starting with a timeless, neutral foundation. In the examples below, they’ve imagined a living room three ways, each beginning with the same Sherrill sofa and an understated area rug.

From there they suggest having fun with fabrics. Using expressive color and pattern you love on pillows, window treatments, even a statement-making wallcovering are all options that can be changed easily and are much more affordable to replace. Lighting, also a simple change, can complement your fabrics and help to define your space. Take note as you scroll through the post, that no matter the style, be it traditional, contemporary or a mix of subtle neutrals, their choice of classic sofa frame promises versatility as times and tastes change.
