Creme Sofa

Is Blue Furniture In Style?

For the past several years, there’s been a real trend toward neutrals. Colors like white, grey, greige, and creme have dominated the design pages. But in the past several months, color has been creeping back in, and the one we see the most of is blue. Just go to any online retailer and type in blue chairs, and a wealth of options will pop up. The same is true for blue sofas, blue rugs, blue poufs, and blue throws and bedding.

We think this is great news because blue, in all of its variations, is simply put, an awesome color! Check out blue chairs of various styles at Overstock.

How Many Chairs Should A Living Room Have?

Though there’s no exact rule of thumb on this, as every living room is different in size and arrangement, there are common sense ways of thinking about it. First, how many people do you hope to be able to sit within an arrangement? If you have a traditional sofa, it can seat three adults. A sofa faces a coffee table or fireplace in many homes, and a chair or two beside the sofa.

In a larger living room, you might have an arrangement of two sofas, or a sofa and loveseat, and two additional chairs, like the room below.

If you have a large sectional in your living room, chair space may be at a minimum. In this case, you may have one additional accent chair and a pouf or ottoman as additional seating. See our post about accent chairs here.

Is It Okay To Have Mismatched Furniture?

Eclectic furnishings in living room

It’s really okay to have whatever furniture you have. Of course, it helps with design to figure out a way to make things cohesive. Try to get pieces with similar leg styles or bulk, even if fabrics and colors don’t match. You can also tie things together using accent colors in throw pillows or styling area rugs with the furniture pieces. Play up how the pieces work together, rather than showcasing how they don’t work together. When mismatched furniture works well together, you end up with a gorgeous, eclectic space.

No Need To Be Blue When Picking Out Your Sofa Color

Blue chairs give you so many options when choosing a sofa. Start with this list and see which style works for you. Look at examples of these colors in other places. Then, when you’ve chosen the color, start sofa shopping!
