Maybe it's the fact that I live in Seattle where it is always grey, but I must say I am a sucker for the color. I believe charcoal is the perfect shade to make your neutral sofa sing!
Choosing the right sofa can be a daunting task. One must juggle comfort, style and cost all at the same time. Most design experts recommend going with a neutral fabric for your settee so it will outstand the flash of current fashion trends. Charcoal sofas add the right balance of impact with practicality. The color mixes well with most anything!
I pulled photos of my three favorite neutral sofas to share with you. I would say my top pick goes to the Bailey's Studio Sofa by Baileys home store. The chaise mixes modern style with casual coloring. Baileys published two lovely books if you need a little extra inspiration for your space.
My next choice goes to the Battersea Sofette in Fog Linen. This small sofa fits two and is to die for. The new charcoal color accompanies the leather and cream versions as well.
Last but not least, I am in love with the Chesterfield sofa from Canvas. The linen fabric pictured has a slight green tint to it, but the company offers many shades of grey also. This sofa is made in the USA and constructed out of sustainably harvested wood frames.
