Pink Sofa Inspirations

Pink is losing its historical associations with femininity, and is now commonly used to represent fun, freedom and contentment, as well as caring, compassion and love. Although many people may consider it a difficult colour to ‘pull off’ effectively, it can create beautiful and unusual colour schemes.

Creating a pink palette

Like any colour, of course, pink comes in a lot of different varieties, all with different associations, and different ways to build an interior design scheme around it.

Light pink, especially pastel pink, can be beautiful, fresh and calming when done well. However it risks looking childish, overly girly, or simply washed out if not applied with care. A light pink sofa works really well as part of a simple, scandinavian palette of wood tones, grey, and white. This allows it to bring a hint of brightness to a room without being too dominant, and emphasises the cool and calm nature of pink rather than the sickly-sweet or girly associations. Light, pastel pink can also be surprisingly close to the tones of some natural woods, so it can work as a great piece in a room full of natural tones.

Bright or hot pink doesn’t run any risks of looking washed out, but it does unsurprisingly need to be used in moderation. A few splashes of hot pink applied as an accent in an otherwise fairly neutral room looks fantastic, but be cautious of the risk of putting hot pink into a room that is only cream and white, as the end result can look a little like an ice-cream factory. Instead, use more varied neutral tones like beige, wood colours, or grey to create a soft but varied backdrop into which you can drop a hot pink sofa and curtains, or a few bright pink scatter cushions.

Dark pink is perhaps the easiest shade of pink to put into a living space, but still has the fun and unusual associations of lighter tones. Depending on the shade, dark pink can go nicely with purple, but also with dark green, as well as the more neutral tones discussed above. Be careful not to go overboard with too many dark colours, however, or the overall impression can be overpowering and make a room look smaller. Instead, try a dark pink sofa to create a focal point in an otherwise clean and uncluttered space.

Pink Chesterfield Sofa

Few sofas are as well suited to unusual shades like pink as the Chesterfield. Its classic stylings, and long associations with luxury and good taste mean that it isn’t dominated or defined by whatever colour you choose for it. Instead, it can wear a tone like hot pink easily and still look elegant and sophisticated.

From a practical point of view, the Chesterfield has the advantage of a fairly slim silhouette due to its low arms and back, which means that when used for a bright colour like pink, it can sit easily against whatever backdrop you have chosen, without dominating the room or blocking out the more understated tones you are using to offset it.

Finally, the deep buttoning of the Chesterfield creates a pattern of light and shadow in whatever colour you have selected, rather than a flat wall of colour. This breaks up vibrant colours slightly and makes them fit easily into rooms in a way that is pleasing on the eye.

Pink Leather sofas

Choosing pink leather is a real statement, but one that can look fantastic in almost any room. Pale, pastel pink leather, especially soft aniline leather, has a natural look that tones beautifully with wood, with exposed brick, and with plants. Equally, a shinier, treated leather looks wonderfully modern in hot pink, and will immediately draw the eye.

Of all the colours we’ve mentioned that go well with pink, grey is probably the best possible choice. It complements it perfectly, making it look brighter by comparison but also preventing it from clashing or taking over a room. Putting a pink sofa against a grey wall or on a grey carpet always looks great, but another option is to mix the colours within the sofa. You could do this with a grey and pink pattern, with a mixed leather and fabric sofa that has back and arms in one colour and fabric, and the cushions in another, or by putting grey scatter cushions on a pink sofa, or vice versa.
