What's the most popular sofa colour?

Home All What’s the most popular sofa colour?

As 2019 draws to a close, the internet is filled with exciting palette predictions for the new year.

Yet, no one can seem to agree: Dulux are waxing lyrical about Tranquil Dawn, fashion mags are hailing Neo Mint as the colour of 2020and Pinterest users can’t stop searching for Lemon Yellow.

While at Plumbs we can’t predict the future, we can offer clarity on the popular pigments of today. All year, we’ve been adding up orders to decide our customer’s favourite colours – and the results are in.

Read on to discover our most popular sofa colours of 2019, as chosen by you.

Neutrals and naturals

The minimalist trend might be a little more elemental than the extravagant décors of interior past, but that’s what makes it a perennial favourite!

From creamy caramel tones to clean ivories and peaceful greys, neutral hues are always a popular sofa fabric – they are a particular hit with those seeking a sophisticated and simple living space.

Stick with the ‘fresh’ theme and level out your light aesthetic with a quaint pair of New Elegant Mini cream curtains. Alternatively, build colour into your home with washes of our earthy Maddison Stone fabric for a homey touch.

Better in blue

A stalwart of the colour spectrum, blue is easily one of our most popular sofa colours on the Plumbs website.

Could a calming blue sofa complete your lounge? Our Mull fabric in Sky boasts a delicate blue check pattern, while the cool undertone whispers “take a seat” without soaking up all the attention. For a more midnight print, try our crowd-pleasing New Elegant Mini sofa fabric in navy blue – a classic choice.

If you can’t decide, there are also cornflower, ocean and duck egg colours to dip your toe into. Just browse our fabric range to find your favourite.

Red hot colours

Coming hot into our popular sofa colours list is red, the most passionate pigment of all.

Rubies, terracottas, clarets and rusts top the bill of our customer favourites – but which one is right for your décor? For a traditional look, try Ascott Trellis in Bordeaux with its delicate diamond pattern – this colour pairs beautifully with rich mahogany fixtures, like coffee tables and hardwood floors. And for extra opulence, frame bay windows with thick red velvet curtains to complete your rouge masterpiece.

Whichever colour you go for, Plumbs’ skilled craftspeople can help you get the look you want. Browse our huge range of fabrics for your sofa, cushions and curtains or call one of our professional consultants for an in-home, no-commitment chat to find out what we can do for you.
