Grey Sofas Style Ideas

To some people grey might mean boring, but when it comes to decorating, grey is anything but dull. Available in an almost infinite variety of shades from the darkest charcoal to the palest off-white, grey sofas introduce an understated elegance that can be warm or cool, modern or classic, subtle or eye-catching; it’s just down to your personal tastes.

In this article we’ll look at a few sofas that are perfectly suited to grey upholstery, and work in all sorts of different spaces.

Ashdown Small Sofa

A simple, clean sofa made stylish by its elegant proportions and myriad little details like the contrasting piping on the cushions, slim wooden feet, and high arms. With a deep seat and high back, it’s also extraordinarily comfortable and welcoming.

The Ashdown small sofa works perfectly in grey, whether its zinc linen or one of several shades of grey velvet. It fits into even the cosiest rooms, where a low-key colour like light grey creates a perfect backdrop on which to build up an attractive colour scheme without overpowering a small space.

Ashdown Optional Extra - Contrast Piping in Mystic Dove

The Ashdown’s rectangular form makes it perfectly suited to be matched with a low, blocky footrest, either in matching grey or a brighter complementary colour like turquoise or orange.

Malvern Midi Sofa

A unique sofa with a distinctive rounded, curvaceous form that harks back to classic styles while retaining modern features and an extremely comfortable fixed seat cushion. That mix of traditional and modern lends itself perfectly to a timeless grey, and means that it suits almost any space from big open loft apartments to smaller period spaces.

The Malvern sofa goes perfectly with an Apsley or Wellington armchair on matching or complimentary colours, and can be brightened up with a throw or scatter cushions.

Dalby Larger Corner Sofa

A large corner sofa with two long equal sides enabling it to comfortable seat a large group, the Dalby Larger corner sofa is a simple, classic design perfectly suited to larger rooms of a range of periods. Like many large sofas, it works well in a relatively neutral colour like grey that prevents it from being too dominant or oppressive, and allows you to dress it up with brighter throws or scatter cushions.

Add a large coffee table or footstool in the centre to make this the focal point of a room, and a comfortable and relaxed way for a whole family or large group to sit together.

 

Hardy Pillow-Back Two-Seater

A sophisticated, modern designs makes this sofa work particularly well in darker greys or charcoal. The sofa, with a back that consists of large, loose cushions elegantly arranged, is extremely comfortable but also has a relaxed and informal look. It works perfectly with a few extra scatter cushions in accent colours, as well as a throw or blanket to offset the black.

Add a matching armchair to complete the look, and place on or near a rug that picks out whatever shade of grey you chose, to tie everything together.

Orlando Three-Seater with Electric Recliners

A square, modern-looking sofa with sleek Italian styling and clean lines, this sofa has electric recliners making it ideally suited to relaxing in front of the television. Its metal legs in shiny chrome will go perfectly with a mid-grey fabric or leather, making for an elegant addition to any living room or home cinema area.

With its reclining back and electric footrest, the Orlando has less need of a footstool, but consider adding a sleek black side-table with a small lamp; perfect for drinks and remote controls when watching television and, of course, light to read by.
