One sofa, six ideas

We showcase how one sofa can have six different looks by just changing the cushions. Find your inspiration here.

Build a collection



Textiles can change the entire feel of a room. This collection has a well-traveled look, and the colors are happy. A wild mix only works when there's balance — pairs, and colors of equal intensity. Black anchors the other colors, and the throw makes it all cozier

Add texture



There is nothing more beautiful than creams and whites. But when all the shades are similar, you need a mix of textures to keep it visually interesting. This is a luxurious, soft feeling. You want to sink into the pillows, or throw a few at someone.

Pair up



To keep a look clean, work in pairs, with patterned pillows in front and solids as the backdrop. That deep plum brings the sofa to life in a bold way, and the feathers add a note of bohemian whimsy. This combo will dress up any sofa.

Play with colour



Pillows are one of the easiest and quickest ways to experiment with color. The turquoise and plum are an atypical combination, but they unexpectedly complement each other. They're a great contrast with the neutral background, and they break up the sea of beige.

Tell a story



On this sofa, custom made cushions with the faces of the owner’s dog add an unique aesthetic. Different patterns and textures, and an asymmetrical arrangement, keep the eye moving. The black and white holds it all together and gives a pop to the dogs.

Shape it up


Round pillows are unusual and kick things up a notch. I love the contrast between the organic and the graphic — round and rectangular, feathers and tartan. The shapes are a nice change from all the squares in the world! I nestled them so it looks like they're snuggling
