The sofa is arguably the most important piece of furniture in your home (based solely on the amount of time you spend on it). It’s where you binge watch episodes of Broad City and Game of Thrones; where you collapse after a long day of work; and where you curl up with a good book on an obligation-free weekend. And while we’re all for a statement piece with explosive pattern or designs, there’s one color in particular we think works in just about every room (not to mention, it’s probably been the most popular hue for upholstery in the last few years): blue. If you’re looking to shake up your neutral tendencies, consider one of these nine picks (starting at just over $600).

Peyton Sofa at Urban Outfitters, $898

Blanketed in a calming shade of pale blue are cozy cushions on a modern wood frame base, making this sofa a textural dream! The delicate silhouette would work great in a busy room (or a small space!) where you want your main furnishing to take up less visual space.

Rose at Interior Define, $1,020

Covered in a heavy linen midnight blue hue (though available in a wide array of other fabrics and colors), the Rose sofa is a nod to the classic English roll arm sofa that seems to have made a serious comeback in interiors lately.

A newer introduction to IKEA’s trusty line of seating, we tested their new Stockholm 2017 and rated it our favorite sofa from the bunch for its depth, comfort and looks. Incredibly deep, it’s not for everyone, but if you’re looking for something to curl up into (and that’s blue…and velvet!) this is your sofa.
