Styling Your Sofa: Accessories

Once you’ve found your dream sofa (see our Guide to Buying Your Perfect Sofa), the next step is to consider how you would like to style your suite. Any sofa, however beautiful, will be left feeling a little bare without the support of a few additional touches to personalise it to you and your space.

Whether you’re wanting to put a contemporary twist on a classic style or emphasise its traditional features, dressing your sofa will allow you to shape your look, down to the smallest detail.

Below we’ve rounded up a few key items and ideas that will allow you to tailor your décor to perfection.

Cushions and Throws

Cushions and throws are a great way to introduce colour and pattern into your scheme and you can afford to have a bit of fun with them. From beautiful bolsters with tassel detailing, to scatters in bold florals and cool geometrics, there are hundreds ways to create a combination you’ll love.

Don’t forget that many Parker Knoll sofas and chairs come with scatter cushions included, allowing you to incorporate more of our gorgeous fabric options into your scheme.

Rugs act as a fantastic anchor in any décor scheme and when placed under your sofa will draw attention to this area, helping to create a cohesive look.

Placing the right lighting around your sofa is important from a decorative perspective, but also from a practical one too. While overhead room lights are great for socialising and watching TV, if you want to create a little more ambiance or snuggle up with a good book, free-standing lamps are an ideal option.

Decorative Touches

Use coffee and side tables to introduce decorative touches to your scheme. A few carefully placed books, a vase of flowers and one or two pretty objects will elevate any blank surface.
