Having just gone through the process of couch hunting, I can say it's an overwhelming process. But one option that never dawned on me was choosing a patterned sofa.
Patterns work for all kinds of homes. If you're the bright, cheerful David Hicks type, you can never have enough splash. And if you're looking for something to make a statement in a minimal room, patterns may be the way to go.
Take a look at the inspiration board and let us know if you take your furniture patterned or plain.
And if you like the 3rd photo, it's actually a painting by Holly Ferrell and available for $6,200 framed.
