Sofa envy by Nashville Interior Designer, Amanda Burdge

David Demattei and Patrick Wade

These days the proverbial beige sofa has really lost my interest. Now, I know that it is a tried and true favorite, and a "go-to"must have for any home, but after ten years of solid beige and brown sofas, I'm ready to move on. As I was doing research for a new client, (who LOVES color) I decided a bold sofa was just what we needed. Why on earth have I not been doing this? Here were a few of my favs!

Really are these not gorgeous? How great would it be to walk into your room and see a vibrant orange sofa? Or a bright acid green one? Just the thought of it brings a smile to my face. I think it's high time to buy a new sofa and add some flavor to the house, who's with me?!

  2. I'm with you! Tired of beige sofas. (And beige walls, for that matter.) Thanks for the great photo inspiration!

  3. I am with you on this {personally} as I'm tired of the brown sofa's in my great room and den. I am, however, glad that I got a washable white slipcover for my living room sofa, which was a dark blue background with a large floral pattern. While the blue as a solid would still have been liveable, the floral really dated it.

  4. Yes, Amanda, perfect images!! Color is si important!
