Three Colour Trends to Know for Your Luxury Sofa Bed

By Darlings Of Chelsea

Sofas are one of the most important pieces of furniture in your living space. They are where you collapse onto after a busy day at work, they are where you relax during the weekend, and where you spend time curled up with your favourite movie or book.

If you’re short on space, your sofa can also double up as a bed, perfect for guests and negating the need to use up the room with a permanent bed.

The last few years have seen a real emergence in luxury sofa beds, with comfort and style now both at the forefront – you no longer need to compromise!

At Darlings of Chelsea, our sofa beds have wooden slats and webbing at the end for added durability and comfort. If you’re interested in buying a new luxury sofa bed and want one that fits in with the latest colour palettes, here are the top three colour trends to know for your luxury sofa bed.

Navy Sofa Bed

With Classic Blue being Pantone’s 2020 colour of the year, the colour navy has very much enjoyed a resurgence over the last few years. A sophisticated colour which brings a real richness to your interiors, it also works well with a range of colours, allowing you to mix and match your furniture to create your desired effect.

Pale yellows through to primary reds will all work as colour companions for navy blue, as will creams, greys and whites. If you want a standout colour to act as a contrast to navy, mustard yellow will really pop against the darker shade of blue.

There is a range of different navy sofa beds available for you to choose from, ranging in size and fabric, from a velvet double sofa bed to a leather corner sofa bed.

It largely depends on the space you have available, the room you are placing it in and the interior theme you are looking to create.

If you have a lot of room, why not consider a navy corner sofa bed, like the Norbury. Available in a range of sizes, you can choose from a loveseat sofa bed, which is slightly larger than a single bed, right up to a 3.5-seater x 3.5-seater corner bed.

If you need a corner sofa bed with storage, the Launceston has a pull-out bed with a storage chaise option, allowing you to store your bedding and any additional accessories you may need for guests.

Mustard Sofa Bed

Rather than acting as a contrast to your navy sofa bed, you could consider using mustard as your main colour, especially if you want a sofa bed that commands attention.

A 2 seater Chesterfield sofa bed such as the Payton offers a classic style which will never go out of fashion, and in a mustard yellow colour, it will be the star of the show.

The Payton is also available as a leather Chesterfield sofa bed and if you want a smaller sofa bed, it’s available as a love seat, a two-seater or a three-seater.

If you do choose a mustard sofa, colours which will work well alongside it are burnt oranges, sage greens and teals.

Houseplants will sit beautifully next to it, with dark wood or gold picture frames and accessories.

Grey Sofa Bed

Modern and chic, grey has been the colour of choice for many for the last few years and it’s not hard to see why. A versatile colour, it complements other neutral shades such as creams, beiges and taupes.

Using a grey palette can also work incredibly well within a Scandi interior, lending itself perfectly to clean lines and minimalism. It can create a calm environment, and help other colours such as pastel pinks, yellows and bright colours pop.

If you decide to go for a grey sofa bed, there are plenty of ways you can work with your interiors to inject some colour (if you want to) – the likes of bold, colourful art and brightly coloured and textured cushions would work seamlessly with a light grey sofa bed.

A grey corner sofa bed can provide you with a neutral colour palette to work with. If you choose a grey leather sofa bed like our Venice range, your sofa will give you a modern, contemporary look to style the rest of your room in line with.

Grey, navy and mustard all complement each other, and should you choose one of these for your corner sofas, bear in mind using the other two as part of your colour palette.
