Have you come to the choice of furniture in your living room but don't know how to combine them? Which color is preferable to choose for the sofa? Is it better to use different colors or use different shades of the same color? Read our advice and you will surely have a better idea!
1. Choose the color of the sofa
The sofa is the main furniture of the living room and the choice of its color is the priority. If you already have other furniture in your living room, choose a color that matches the whole room.
The color of the sofa then determines the tones of the entire environment. Choose a color that you like and that you think is easy to match. Instead, if you want to dare more and opt for brighter colors that attract attention, use that color as the main tone of the entire living room.

The Charlie sofa in red is certainly a risky choice but can be balanced in the overall. The red color dominates the room but it is not excessive. The central element of the living room is in fact highlighted by the bright color and the remaining furniture adopts soft colors, such as white, which refresh the environment and make it balanced.
By opting for softer colors, instead, you can focus on the material. Choosing a leather sofa definitely adds a touch of extra elegance. The Charlie leather sofa is finely worked to guarantee an excellent consistency, greater brilliance and maximum comfort.

2. Choose up to 3 colors
Choose at most 3 main colors that match each other. If you've chosen a red sofa, combining too many different colors can only create confusion. Opt then for white or different shades of red. If you have decided to combine an armchair with your sofa, choose a color that does not contrast too much with the color of your sofa.
If you have chosen a leather sofa with a bright color you can opt for this white armchair. Using the same material but with a less bright color, the sofa will always be the protagonist but even the armchair will not be overshadowed, especially if decorated with handwork and gilded details, such as the Zanaboni Luigi XV armchair.

If you opt for a more relaxed environment, a solid wood coffee table could be for you. Wood certainly adds value to the environment and visually has a softer impact. Even with different colors, wood finds its place in your living room, making the room warmer but at the same time functional. Combined with a sofa of similar color, the accessories will make the difference but even in this case the overall harmony is guaranteed!

3. Keep the same style throughout your living room
If the dining table is near the living room, try to keep the same style in the furniture. If you have chosen a leather sofa, opt for a classic style table, perhaps with golden details to resume the decorations of the armchair, or by choosing the same color.
Extra tip: take care of the details
The details make the difference, especially in terms of furniture. For example, choosing curtains matched to the color of your sofa could be the right choice!
Whether you decide to adopt a monochromatic style or whether you decide to focus on a few different colors, adding light and coordinated details makes the whole environment neat and perfectly in harmony.
