Style Forecast: Sofa Trends for 2014 & Beyond

Pin it button big

I recently bought a new sofa and it felt like I was buying a car. It's such a big decision; both in terms of cost and how long you'll likely live with it. New sofa styles for 2014 are harkening back to classic themes - a Scandinavian take on mid-century, natural wood legs, colorful upholstery, tufted details and retro silhouettes. Let's take a look at some of the sofa designs that are sure to please through this year and many more to come...

Colorful Structured Upholstery: Cushy comfort is being sacrificed for structured style and color choices include retro shades of blue and green adorning mid-century inspired designs.

Button Detailing: Button tufted styling on sofas is a timeless classic that won't feel dated

Grey: Still going strong for practical purposes, but now with a twist such as colored buttons or a unique retro shape

Which of these trends do you like best?
