The colorful sofa trend is going strong and, as a color addict myself, I couldn’t be happier. It’s hard not to smile when you walk into a room that has a big and bold pop of color. Color may not be for everyone and the thought of such a large piece in a bright color may be intimating, but what’s great is that a colorful sofa can actually be versatile. It can blend into a room full of color, stand out against an equally fabulous contrasting wall, or be the star of an otherwise neutral room. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite colorful sofa looks, plus a shopping guide of where to pick up a couch in the hue of your choice.
