Turn your old Multiyork into a focal piece

Home All Turn your old Multiyork into a focal piece

Multiyork is one of the most popular sofa styles. They’re elegant and sophisticated, and many of us have them. Though they emulate a timeless style, years of family life may mean your Multiyork sofa is ready for a makeover.

We have some tips, from choosing the right fabric to choosing the right place to put your Multiyork sofa so it catches the eye of anyone who enters the room.

Choose the right fabrics and colours

Choosing the right fabric and colours is important for turning your sofa or couch into a focal piece. We have a range of fabric colours from natural tones to purple shades. Here are some fabrics we’ve picked out to help make your Multiyork stand out.

Sofa reupholstery fabrics

With sofa reupholstery, all you need to do is choose the right fabrics to give your sofa a new look and head-turning recognition. Here are our choices.

Lewis – Red

A traditional red checked fabric that makes a statement. Lewis – Red adds a touch of tartan pattern to any room, keeping it traditional and stylish. It’s sure to catch anyone’s eye. Perfectly coordinate this fabric with plains like Abbey – Chalk and other large checks such as Mull – Red. Lewis – Red comes in 6 other colours like Caramel and Sky so if you like the pattern but not the colour, there are plenty of alternatives.

Darwin – Aegean

Aptly named after the deep blue waters of the Aegean Sea, Darwin – Aegean is vivid with deep tones that can work in a variety of homes. This rich blue tone is sophisticated and classy. The colour alone is bold enough to catch the eye and the plain nature of the fabric means your Multiyork will work well with many curtain styles and patterns too.

Astral – Saffron

Astral – Saffron is an interesting and abstract design that is contemporary and distinguished. The lines help to create a busy, yet modern look that will help make your Multiyork sofa stand out. What’s brilliant about this fabric is that it’s available in two other colours too, Cobalt and Teal, so you can choose a shade that suits your home and existing decor.

Multiyork sofa covers

Many people don’t realise that their Multiyork furniture often has removable covers that are tailor-made for the furniture. Our team are experts in producing new, bespoke covers for Multiyork – many of which are machine washable.

Abbey – Raspberry

Pale shades can make a statement of Multiyork sofas too. Available in 5 other colours, Abbey – Raspberry loose sofa cover is pink like the colour of raspberry ice cream. It’s perfect for some summer nostalgia. A Multiyork in this shade paired with some cream-coloured cushions will break up the wash of pink nicely, helping to make your Multiyork sofa stand out even more.

Part of the Aquaclean range and made primarily from polyester, this sofa cover will last a while, keeping its recognisable pink hue for some time. To help further retain its colour, wash this large sofa cover at 30°C on a short spin and leave it out to dry.

Secret Garden – Emerald

If you’re looking for a classical pattern that will draw attention to your Multiyork, Secret Garden – Emerald is an excellent choice. An intricate dark green floral design with delicate detail on a cream backdrop, this sofa cover is intricate as well as artistic. Made from nearly all cotton, this sofa cover has a soft feel to it that can be easily maintained with a 30°C light spin wash.

Bayswater – Fuchsia Pink

Bayswater – Fuchsia Pink is just one option in our bestselling Bayswater collection – which boasts over 50 stunning colours. This particular shade is a bold pink-purple that captivates you with its warm, welcoming tone. A Multiyork sofa with this fabric will be equally inviting. Retain the elegant hue of this sofa cover with a 30°C wash.

Choose the right spot

Choosing the right place in your home for your Multiyork will help it become a focal piece too. The position, lighting and colour of the room itself or other furniture will influence how noticeable your Multiyork is. Here is some general guidance on where to place your Multiyork to help it stand out even more:

  • Contrast a Multiyork in a deep and vibrant fabric like Bayswater – Coral in a room that is painted with a neutral pale colour
  • Other pieces of upholstery like curtains and cushions that break up the colour of your Multiyork can help make it more of a focal point
