What Colour Carpet Goes With a Brown Leather Sofa?

By Darlings Of Chelsea

For many people, a brown leather sofa is definitely the sofa of choice. It is practical, long-lasting and hard-wearing – pretty much everything you could want from a leather sofa. However, some people find it challenging to pick a carpet that will go well with a brown leather sofa. We suggest some options that might be ideal for your home.

Go Beige

A brown leather sofa can be quite dark if it is put in a room with an already darkened colour scheme. The good news is you can instantly lighten things up – and make your sofa look even more fabulous. This example has a subtle striped design, making it well worth a closer look. The beige colouring complements the leather sofa exceptionally well and yet doesn’t make the room look dull. Far from it in fact – and you can also accessorise with beige cushions to tie the whole look together.

Light and Natural Shade

Choose a Light and Natural Carpet

There is a lot to be said for getting a 100% real wool carpet. Wool is exceptionally long-lasting and is ideal for frequently used areas like living rooms and even hallways. The range of natural shades here will suit any room with a brown leather sofa, so there is a lot of variety to choose from. Consider the people in your home and whether you have children or animals to worry about. If you do you should perhaps consider a darker shade.

Stippled Design

Look for a Stippled Design

There is no need to opt for a carpet of just one colour if you don’t want to. However, you don’t have to opt for a garish design either. Axminster Carpets are known for their high-quality carpets and their ribgrass stipple carpet designs are well worth a closer look. Some have a natural look to them but incorporate a coloured fleck through the design, such as flame red or a nutmeg colour for example.

Light Pastel Colour

Opt for a Light Pastel Colour

Pastels also work terrifically well with brown leather. Ryalux makes a great range of carpets in all shades and you can choose by colour on their website. One such carpet is the Period Velvet style which comes in a pale green colour. It is very subtle and would complement your sofa beautifully. Look out for colour options such as Christobel (the pale green shade) and Anastacia, which is a paler yellow colour.

Making the right choice for your tastes and your home

It’s good to know there are plenty of great carpet choices you can make that will look wonderful with your new leather sofa. Once you know what budget you have for your new carpet you can make the colour choice you like best. This means you can enjoy the very best living room or lounge space – one that will show off your sofa beautifully.
