The protagonist of the living area, the sofa is one of the central elements in the interior design. The choice is not easy, we need to understand what type of fabric we want to accommodate our seat, the measures, the arrangement, etc. But once we have identified the model that is right for us, color becomes one of the most significant factors for the correct insertion of this complement within the context that will frame it.
The nuances available are infinite, and there is actually no correct solution, as for everything else, the choice is subjective, but we can identify among the online search estimates which are the most sought-after colors for sofas and understand what are the trends that they could do for us and perfectly match our personal tastes.
Let's see the ranking together:
At the top of the charts we find the gray sofa, in various shades, from lightest to black, gray is an elegant, cold and neutral color, features that make it versatile in combining with many colors, ideal for contemporary settings.
Much to the astonishment, pink is among the favorite colors. From shocking shades to powder pink, pink seems to have become the protagonist of many living rooms. Surely it is a color that determines character and personality, if you know how to combine it with more neutral colors and a very light and minimal environment.
3. Blue / light blue
It is the color of calm, infinity, peace, emotional serenity and harmony. And it is the third most searched color on Google for sofas. It manages to blend well with the surrounding environment, from darker or verdant shades such as petroleum to light blue.
4. Cream / white
Very difficult to maintain, the white sofa is a risky choice in terms of practicality in cleaning, over the years it risks getting stained and dirty, especially if children and pets live in the house. Despite this flaw in terms of practicality, the white sofa blends in with any type of furniture, especially with the Swedish and shabby chic style, obviously based on the style of the context in which it is inserted, you can also play with the texture. Among the light shades we can also find ivory and cream which, compared to white, give a slightly warmer sensation.
Like blue, it recalls nature and is therefore synonymous with calm and relaxation. From the most sage to emerald shades, the green color creates a sophisticated atmosphere without being excessive, it is not surprising that it is one of the colors in vogue and preferred by users.
6. Red / terracotta
A trendy color even if one of the lowest in the ranking is red. Very difficult to combine, it is perfect in dark environments where it is very scenographic, which is why it is suitable for vintage contexts, perhaps opting for a velvet upholstery to soften such a bright color.
For those who want to combine a color with the same warm and bright effect but without exaggerating, they can opt for a terracotta nuance, especially in environments with the presence of light woods.
A sunny and cheerful color that can range from lemon yellow, to ocher, to a thousand other shades that will illuminate the room and make the sofa the protagonist of the living area.
