Brown sofas, especially dark brown ones, are often picked for their practicality, but this neutral furnishing doesn't have to be boring. You can use these styling tips to bring out the beauty in your brown sofa.

Brown sofas are a practical living room staple. This popular neutral furnishing meshes well with most color palettes and design styles. Plus, dark brown is one of the most forgiving colours for dirt and stains, making it a smart choice for those with pets or young children. 

So, you might be asking what really goes with brown leather. After doing some interesting research, this is what we found...

Embrace Nature

Lean into an organic look by pairing a brown sofa with earth tones. Colors like olive green, watery blue, terra-cotta, and rusty red really work well as they are often seen together in nature. We have plenty of sofas in those colours that are amazing quality for you to choose from.

Add warmth to a cool blue living room

Blue can be a tricky colour to get right, as it can often make a living room feel chilly, especially north-facing rooms where the light is more harsh. But introducing warm-toned browns can help to cosy up a blue living room scheme, while blue will also help to bring out the richness of brown leather upholstery.

Give a plain living room a decorative focal point by adding a wood-panelled feature wall. DIY timber panelling is easy to install and it can be painted a moody denim blue to complement a chestnut leather-coloured sofa.
