Glamorous Blue Sofas

There’s a reason blue is such a popular colour for logos, and for interior design. It represents wisdom and trust but also, being the colour of the sea and sky, has associations with freedom, adventure and the unknown. It’s also a great colour for interior design, with the ability to fit into any space, whether you choose a quiet and sedate dark blue, an eye-catching sky blue, or a rich and glamorous royal blue.

 

Dark Blue Sofas

Dark sofa styles often revolve around black, brown or grey, so you can really stand out from the crowd with a big splash of dark blue in your living room. It’s classic and adaptable, and works perfectly in vintage or contemporary interiors.

Navy blue derives, as the name suggests, from the rich, dark blue uniforms worn by sailors of the 17th and 18th centuries. The rest of their uniforms were often cream, or crisp white, and these are both great colours to offset a navy blue sofa, giving a sharp, slightly seaside look to a room. Alternatively, balancing a navy blue sofa with light blue walls or carpet can create a smart, classic monochromatic scheme.

Royal blue is a brighter, more vibrant blue; the colour of Caribbean sea and, it is said, a dress made for Queen Charlotte. With these associations, it’s unsurprising that it goes brilliantly with pale yellow walls and rich gold accents, making a bright and bold colour scheme.

For a more subtle look, try midnight blue; a blue so dark it’s almost black. It’s darker tone pairs well with dark wood furniture and white or cream accents, creating a two-tone effect that allows the more understated blue tone of the sofa to shine through without being overwhelmed by other colours to the point where it just looks black.

Light Blue Sofas

A sofa in a light blue fabric is an incredibly smart and on-trend addition to any living space, creating a feeling of light and space, and working in any number of interior styles.

A pale, pastel blue sofa brings a feeling of spring to a room, and works particularly well in large, light spaces. It can pair well with other pastel colours like pink and yellow, although this can create a rather ‘nursery’ or feminine feeling in a room. For most people, pastel blue works better set against darker blues on the walls or carpet, or bold black and white schemes that allow the pastel shade to stand out without becoming the only tone in the room.

Teal, on the other hand, is a much easier colour to decorate around. A greenish blue that is hugely fashionable at the moment, it works with a wide range of colours from cream to purple, and can be a statement piece in an otherwise white, grey or cream room, or part of a wide teal colour scheme.

Sky blue is a less common light blue for sofas, but one that can work brilliantly in the right kind of room. A crisp, modern-looking shade that brings a sense of optimism to a room, sky blue pairs brilliantly with orange or yellow. Try a sky blue sofa on a pale yellow carpet or against a sunflower yellow wall for a bright and contemporary look.

Blue works particularly well in velvet. The natural variation in tone that velvet creates suits itself beautifully to blue, being reminiscent of sky and sea, and its rich look and association with luxury are a natural match for a colour linked to royalty.

Velvet is especially suitable for royal or navy blue, and for teal. Try any of these colours with a classic velvet chesterfield, or a modern Scandinavian design for a unique and attention-grabbing look.

 

Blue Leather Sofas

Blue leather is a more unusual shade than brown, green or even red, but this is one of the things that makes it so eye-catching. Impossible to pin down to a particular era or interior style, a blue leather sofa is timeless and elegant, and works in all sorts of different spaces. Try a dark blue leather sofa on a crisp cream background, offset with mid-brown tables and chairs and dark red throws or scatter cushions, for a look that works by subtly reversing our expectations of where colours should be, but still creating a whole that works together and is pleasing to the eye.
