Purple works well with taupe

Decorating Your Living Room With Purple Sofa Furniture

In an informal or more formal living room, nine times out of ten the main focal point of the room and main seating will be the sofa, or the largest sofa if you have more than one. Recently, we’ve been using our sofas as an item of function and style, and being bolder with colours and textures to enhance our living rooms.

Purple works well in living rooms as a colour, because of its rich, relaxing, cooling yet quite central properties, with a spectrum that stretches from pastel soft lilac tones, to dramatic and brooding plums. You can use the colour purple to create almost any kind of living room atmosphere.

These beautiful homes have added a purple sofa to their living rooms, turning up the colour and the style volume. Be inspired by these funky, modern, and stylish purple sofas that will inspire you to add a splash of purple to your own living or family room:
