The art of sofa styling – 5 ways to spice up your living space

The sofa is the heart of any living space. It’s where we unwind after a long day, enjoy a lazy Sunday afternoon, or catch up with friends and family. But how many of us truly make the most out of our sofas in terms of style?

With a little creativity and inspiration, you can transform your sofa into an eye-catching piece that’s both functional and stylish. Here are 5 ways to style your sofa, bringing a fresh and exciting aesthetic to your room.

Selecting the right sofa style

First and foremost, finding the right sofa style is crucial. With a wide range of options available at zofa, from the sleek and slim-armed Hush to the ultra-luxurious Utopia, there’s something to suit every design aesthetic. The 7th Heaven Midi is perfect for those seeking a modern, minimalist look, while the Daydream offers a more traditional, cosy feel. Remember, the sofa is the centrepiece of your room, so choose a style that reflects your personal taste and complements the overall decor.

Accessorising with cushions

Carefully considering your choice of cushions can make a whole lot of difference to the overall look of your sofa. It adds a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ to your living space. Experiment with different sizes, shapes, and textures and don’t be afraid to mix and match solids and patterns to add depth and visual interest. At zofa, we offer a combination of patterns and colours to go right along with your chosen zofa sofa. Why not have a browse here?

Positioning your sofa

The positioning of your sofa can dramatically change the dynamic of your room. Placing your sofa against a wall can create a sense of spaciousness, while positioning it in the centre can help to divide an open-plan space. Remember, most zofa sofas come with removable arms, making them easy to manoeuvre and reposition whenever you fancy re-decorating.

Layering with throws

Throws are a great way to add texture and warmth to your sofa. Drape a throw casually for a relaxed, boho aesthetic, or fold it neatly for a more formal, structured look. From plush velvets to soft wools, the choice of fabric can drastically influence the mood of your space.


Finally, don’t forget to accessorise. A stylish coffee table, a chic rug or a statement lamp can significantly enhance your sofa styling.

We want you to love the look and feel of your new zofa from the moment you set eyes on it (and sit on it of course). We’ll happily send you a box of fabric samples and who knows, we might throw a little something extra in with it too.
