Couch Inspiration

via pottery barn
Every few years something triggers in me and I feel the need to decorate. Historically, I've been pretty terrible about decorating. In my 6 or so years of apartment living, I only ever got a couch and rug I liked. Fast forward a few years from when I got those items and the couch I've gotten bored of and the rug just had one too many accidental spills. So starts the desire for a new couch! 

I have absolutely fallen in love with the tufted designs of these couches. They look sophisticated and luxurious!

Some pieces can be formal centerpieces in a living room, others look more like futuristic, fancy futons.

Overall though, I have been loving a grey/black/white color scheme. It's easy to match and decorate around. You can choose any color as an accent and it'll blend in.

Now, if someone could just help me out and throw a grand or two my way? Thaaaaanks. That's a reasonable budget, right?

In all seriousness, what does your couch look like? Do you like it? What's your ideal couch?

  1. Tufted couches are my FAVORITE. We had no idea what we were doing and bought a leather couch last time around (luckily on sale), but never again - so hard to maintain. I would honestly take a white couch over the leather one, and these are sooo much prettier :)

  7. I always dream of a new couch but the one we have is so functional and comfy and not exceptionally ugly or anything so I just assume wait. I love your options!

  8. I have owned so many! ( i am 57) My favorite was modern, but stuffed with down and mohair, and was very deep. My daughter preferred it to her own bed! It was taupe chenille and help up perfectly. Wish I had kept it!

  10. I really like the look of the more modern tufted option you showed here, but it really depends on the style of the room! I think it comes down to a good balance of comfortableness and style for me. I'm willing to forgo a little on style if it's super comfy!

  11. Mine is pretty formal. I always prefer grey colour. White is nice but get dirty easily especially with kids around.

  12. The first couch has to be my type. I like simple looks that gives brightness to the room.

  16. Hi, i love this post! I owned the Home Decorator's 3-seater tufted, exactly like the picture shown in blue leather. I am a super big fan of tufted couches and chairs, i suggest you opt for a leather or faux leather than an upholstered fabric. I had to sell my antique upholstered fabric tufted couch really cheap as the antique and furniture stores said they are hard to sell due to its maintenance.

  19. I have a lovely beige couch that Jeanine (blogger) helped me pick out from Crate & Barrel! I might go for a chair and a half next. It's been on my list for ages

  20. I have such the urge right now! We've had our stuff for about 6 years now and it's definitely showing it! Can't wait to move and re-decorate!

  21. Hmmm, I like the look of the top one the best. I have a tufted velvet couch so I might be biased though. I love the look of the tufting but I don't generally enjoy getting the lint out of all the belly buttons. It's the price you pay for design though. :)
