One fabulous sofa can be the catalyst for an inviting room! Make your next sofa purchase one that has all the bells and whistles you’ve been wanting; and maybe a few you haven’t considered! Kim Isreal knows where to find the treasure trove of stylish looks.
Select from so many designs from simple to grandeur, with straight, curved, plump, tufted, scalloped varieties in a range of sizes. Many can be customized in length and construction too. Choose a color you truly love! Go for what looks good on you….peek into your own wardrobe and jewelry boxes for ideas. Trims on pillows can be soft, silky, textured, bold, shimmering or iridescent touches. This time consider gorgeous contrasting welts to show off and define the shape of your sofa, maybe quilted chenille on the seat cushions, a striking contrast fabric on back.
Try cultural influences. These can be stunning with the right mix of color, texture and design: think American, African, Asian, Latin, European, and Indian to name a few; the choices are very inspiring and vast!
Have fun with mixing coordinating patterns in throw pillows. These pillows can be where the “power” fabrics shine. Also, buy extra down filled pillows for a seasonal switch, dressy parties, or for added comfort and luxury in a range of shapes like bolsters, rounds, triangles, boxed, kidney, etc. Your investment in a variety of extra pillows goes a long way as it gives your sofa a fresh new look when you’re ready for a change.
Opt for rich texture and beautiful color even if you prefer simple, chic lines without the embellishments. You can still make a fabulous statement!
