Forget your grandma’s old-fashioned chintz couch, a modern patterned sofa can work wonders for your home. When properly styled, brightly upholstered seating can make an artful centerpiece in a room—no hammer or nails necessary. To prove our point, we’ve gathered 4 beautiful, print-covered sofas for your perusal (and inspiration). From polka dots to chevron prints, scroll ahead for some gorgeous graphic sofas that will seriously make you reconsider your opinion of patterned upholstery.

Above: Sometimes all you need to warm up a cold, white space are some pretty patterned furnishings. Whether it’s with a colorful Ikat or a muted southwestern-style Aztec print (how amazing is this settee from @wisteriahomedecor?), a spirited sofa can breathe new life into the drabbest of rooms.

While the thought of a jungle print sofa might seem outrageous, hear us out. A well-styled palm printed piece can actually be a glamorous focal point for your home. Consider a bolder color combination (like the blush and green pairing above, from on Living Etc via Sophie Robinson) for a more dramatic look, and just sacrifice some throw pillows (or go totally neutral here) to avoid appearing cluttered.

Although a chevron sofa alone is fashionable enough to leave an impression, when paired with other eye-catching colors and prints it can create a wonderfully impactful interior scene. Accessorize with neutral textiles to make a subdued statement or go with brightly patterned pieces like in this room from Cowtan & Tout for a more maximalist display.

Funny how something as simple as polka dots can transform the entire ambience of your place. Whether the spots are big or small (or both, such as this sofa seen in a room from Daily Imprint), dotted upholstery doesn’t just look super chic, it’s a great way to bring texture and subtle pattern play into your living room. Plus, they’re just such a happy addition to any room.
