Sofas are oftentimes the single biggest piece of furniture in our homes, and for Homepolish Creative Director Orlando Soria, there's no better way to make a BIG statement than a pop of blue.
It’s no secret that blue is my favorite color. I use it in art, textiles, decorative objects, dishware… so basically anywhere I can get away with it. For me, blue is so commonplace it’s almost a neutral. Like, if I could get away with it I’d just paint every room blue and fill it with blue furniture and force my clients to eat blueberries out of blue bowls all day. And then they might plump up like Violet Beauregarde in a chocolate factory (because let’s face it, she was definitely a shade of blue, not violet… but have you ever met a girl named Blue? I don’t think so).
As my luck would have it, blue sofas (in a variety of shades) are on trend right now. And I can’t help but rave about it.
You can go with a LOUD sofa, like Homepolish’sdid in this New York space. If you want a blue sofa and are absolutely NOT afraid of going crazy with color, why not choose a cute chesterfield in a teal so neon it glows in the dark? This sofa paired with the bright pink art and accessories make my retinas explode in a happy way.
It seems like Homepolish designer Matthew Cane is the master of understated blue sofas. In this luxurious apartment, the sofa is just blue enough to not be gray, but just gray enough to be totally subtle and sophisticated.
If you like the idea of a blue sofa but you want something more subtle, check out this NYC apartment (also by Matthew Cane). It has a beautiful, understated turquoise sofa. You might also call this color sage or some variant of green, but I choose to call it blue because that works with the pro-blue argument I’m trying to make here.
