Here are some tips about choosing the best Sofa Fabric for your Sofa Set as well as some sofa offers from Harvey Norman.
Sofas are often the centrepiece of the living room and are an integral part of life at home. If you’re having trouble finding a sofa that matches your decor, consider customising one so that it’s a perfect fit for your home and lifestyle. Mixing and matching sofa fabrics really isn’t as difficult as you may think.
Inspiration – Fabrics are one of the easiest ways to transform the look of a room there’s no mess since there’s no painting or renovation nvolved. Start by looking at interior design publications or websites. In-store displays are another useful source of ideas.
Material – Thicker fabrics may be more durable but they are also hotter, although this may be less of an issue if you often use the air-conditioner. If you eat on the sofa or have children, consider waterproof fabrics which are less easily stained.
Set the mood – Think about the mood you want to achieve. This will influence the colours and patterns chosen. If you’re after a relaxing vibe, consider more earthy colours. Primary colours may be more suitable for vibrant, modern schemes.
Variety – Working with different types of prints may produce surprising results. For example, you may find that floral prints work well with certain types of geometric prints.
Mix ‘n’ match – If you’re using a combination of patterns, such as stripes and solids, choose colours that work well together, as this will help to make the overall design look coherent. Some stores help by displaying matching fabrics and textures together, which helps eliminate much of the guesswork of matching fabrics. This may even help you decide on fabrics for accessories such as cushions and curtains.
Keep it complementary – Fabrics with different patterns can work together if they complement each other. As a rule of thumb, don’t pair fabrics with large prints together. If a fabric has a large print, you could use stripes or smaller prints as accent pieces, or use solid colours so the prints aren’t overpowering.
Patterns – If you are matching patterned fabrics, try to limit their use to two or three patterns, the greater the number of patterned fabrics, the greater the chances of them clashing. If you only like one portion of a patterned fabric, consider using just that portion, although this will result in waste.
Stripes – These often work best with square or rectangular pieces and can also help make a sofa or chair appear taller or longer than it
is. This can help “heighten” a room visually, making it look bigger and more spacious. Produced by the TODAY Special Projects Team
