Mix And Match Your Sofas For A Hot Design Trend

2018-11-14T17:15:50+00:00

We all want our living room to be sophisticated and have a pulled together look that shows the thought and craft that has gone into it. But that doesn’t mean everything has to be styled and co-ordinated and follow a certain colour scheme. Mis-matched furniture is most definitely in, but it doesn’t necessarily follow that your living room needs to look like there is no concept to it.

The trendy craft ale bars and coffee shops in most towns and cities revel in chairs collected from thrift stores and antique shops, and it works well to have an upright wooden chair next to a second hand deep, leather sofa. Shabby chic is the look they are going for, and while ‘no rules’ is the rule, it doesn’t mean you need to adopt this to the letter and that anarchy reigns when it comes to your living room.

Invest in comfort and style with a Nabru sofa

Mix and match sofas can form the centre piece of your home improvement, particularly if you want to invest in the very best comfort and style for your sofa, but can’t afford to splash out on everything else in the room.

So a two-seater sofa can sit next to another two-seater sofa and they don’t necessarily have to be the same colour. Or you can have a two-seater sofa forming an angle with a three-seater or a four-seater. As long as you stick to fairly neutral colours, this allows you to then layer your room in a style that is considered but looks wonderfully carefree.

Your mix and match sofas should of course be the right size for the room. Don’t over clutter the room with two sofas that dominate or don’t complement each other, and equally, don’t stick a pair of two-seaters together when you have room for so much more.

Your sofa is the centre point of your room

The neat and clean lines of Nabru sofas and the choice of colours available allow you to start the room re-design with your sofas and then build from there, with accompanying furniture free to bring a variety of shapes and sizes to the party, to work with your sofa centre point. So next to your Nabru sofa you can make permanent use of an occasional chair, or an upcycled table or you can buy a coffee table or a feature rug from a second hand shop. The choice is yours, but it’s all stemming from the focal point of your mix and match sofas.

It is true that the mix and match concept is pretty hipster at the moment, and fits the lifestyle of drinking imported coffee, eating granola in the morning and discussing artisan gins. But it is an idea that is unlikely to go out of fashion, because it is custom-made and brings personality, and designing a room with your own ideas and on a tight budget is never likely to disappear. Increasingly, people are wanting freedom of expression and are looking for cost-effective ways to improve the home.

Mix and match sofas is the hot design trend that allows you to do this. You can use the wealth of choice from Nabru and then envelop them in your personality; where there are no limits, no rules and no questions asked.
