2018’s sofa scene is indicating a major shift toward the opulent. Plump, curvy silhouettes, deep jewel tones, and luxe materials are making a big splash in living rooms everywhere. And while the luxury look may seem reserved for the 1 percent among us, these trendy sofa looks are achievable for us Regular Joes, too.
We’ve broken down the latest sofa trends by style, color, and material. We’re excited to show you what’s hot for 2018 – and how to get the look yourself.
This year we’re seeing more and more sofas with plump, overstuffed silhouettes and plenty of space to kick back and relax. The exposed legs and delicate designs of Mid-century sofas and settees are still mega-popular, but we’re also seeing a trend toward indulgent over-sized frames, chaise sectionals, and low, curvy profiles.
Comfy & Cozy
Plush cushions and over-sized chaise sectionals are some of 2018’s top trends in living room furniture. Large, plump cushions and king-sized silhouettes are all the rage right now … And this means plenty of comfort and relaxation for you.
Sofas with curvy, rounded edges are having a major moment in 2018. Traditional ’70s colors such as mustard, sage, and persimmon lend a healthy dose of vintage flair. To keep your space anchored in the modern era, choose of-the-moment shades like cobalt blue or millennial pink.
If you’re a fan of the Mid-century aesthetic, fear not – this vintage-inspired trend isn’t going anywhere. Clean lines, cushion tufting, and exposed wooden legs are still super-hot in home décor. To bring this look into your own home, look for tuxedo or cabriole-style sofas.
Sofa Color Trends
The use of color is one of 2018’s biggest trends when it comes to home design and furniture. From paint and décor to bedding and upholstery, there’s never been a better time to express yourself with your favorite shades.
Deep Jewel Tones
One of the hottest color trends we’ve seen this year is the increased use of bold, rich jewel tones. Deep purples, emerald greens, and shades of blue ranging from teal to sapphire to navy are taking over homes across the globe. A statement sofa is the perfect way to infuse this trend into your own space.
Pretty in Pink
“Millennial pink” was one of 2017’s hottest hues, and we’re happy to report that this flirty, feminine shade is here to stay in 2018. From blush and baby pink to salmon and dusty rose, this trendy tone can make any space feel a little softer, warmer, and sweeter. If pink isn’t quite your thing, we’re also seeing a major trend toward purple-y tones such as lavender and mauve.
Those ’70s Shades
Five years ago, the thought of welcoming back ’70s-inspired colors would have sent most of us into peals of laughter and cries of “yeah, right.” But as it always does, the wheel of style just kept turning … And here we are in 2018 celebrating gold, green, and rusty orange as some of the season’s trendiest shades. Go with an ultra-saturated hue to make a bold statement, or apply the trend more subtly with earthy, muted shades.
It appears that this year’s upholstery trends are skewing toward the luxurious and the detailed. Rich materials such as velvet and leather lend an air of sophistication, while tufted backs and seats create texture and visual interest.
As one of the hottest emerging material trends, velvet has become a year-round staple in closets and common areas alike. No longer reserved for winter months and special occasions, velvet has become an everyday fabric that adds a touch of elegance and opulence to any space.
Bold tufting is one of our favorite trends of the year, and we love how easy it is to incorporate into the living room. Traditional button tufting, vintage-inspired channel tufting, and the ultra-modern all-over look provide a healthy dose of detail and drama.
