As the sofa is not a piece of furniture that people change often, the tones need to be more consistent to spend a long time in your space. In this way, the architect Tatiana Marques gives some tips for more classic colors and warns about new trends.

Sofa color trend for 2022

According to the architect, “one of the big bets in 2022 are very classic and timeless tones, but without leaving previous trends aside”. So, if you are a person who likes change and prefers the different, take note of the colors below:

Caramel

With the inclusion of earth tones in the decoration as a strong trend in recent years, the caramel sofa is one of the bets of this year and this color matches different styles of decoration. Leather and linen upholstery are the most sought after.

Blue

AS DESIGN ARCHITECTURE

Blue is another trend. Its variations of tones print different sensations, think that the darkest guarantees sobriety in space, while the medium and light tones refer to elements of nature. This color gained space during social isolation, when people began to seek a greater sense of comfort and well-being at home.

In addition to this search for sensations of comfort, there was a great demand for elements that inspire creativity, as many people started working from home during the pandemic. Saturated colors such as red and yellow fulfilled this function well, as well as pink and its variations, which can contrast between calm and sophistication.

For Tatiana, in addition to the choice of colors, the model and material of the sofa also change according to the trend. For 2022, loop fabrics and fendi models are the ones that are most in evidence, guaranteeing sophistication and durability.

Classic sofa colors

In order not to go out of fashion and guarantee a color that is full of durability, Tatiana Marques’ big bets are beige tones and neutral colors, which match everything and can be applied to different fabrics. These tones can be applied in the following examples:

white and beige

Neutral tones do not fall into disuse and sofas are no different. White and beige are timeless classics, because in addition to combining with everything, they also guarantee sophistication and elegance for all types of decoration. Keep an eye out for these two colors if you want to invest in minimalism.

gray and graphite

LIVIA DALMASO ARCHITECTURE

Ultimate gray was one of Pantone ‘s color bets for 2021 and prevailed in 2022, but gray and graphite have been present as a color trend for sofas since the last decade. Used mainly in living areas, their neutrality matches all types of decor.

Black

BIANCHI & LIMA ARCHITECTURE

Like caramel, black is present in leather tapestries and armchairs, especially in living rooms and offices. This color is elegant and it is possible to create a more intimate and manly environment. The choice is right for those who don’t want to risk color and especially if you don’t want a sofa that is easy to stain.

When choosing the ideal color for the sofa, keep in mind the proposal you want to create for the environment in which it will be accommodated, as this color will have a great influence on the style of decoration.

How to choose sofa color

To complement, take note of the tips pointed out by Tatiana Marques to choose the sofa color that best meets your everyday needs:

  • Understand your proposal: to determine the color of the sofa, you first need to look at your decor as a whole. If there are already several striking colors, the ideal is to invest in a more sober color; but, if it is the opposite, colored sofas are a good choice;
  • Think about durability: as it is an outstanding and highly resistant piece of furniture, the ideal is to choose a color that does not get sick and, above all, that is democratic for possible changes in the environment over the years;
  • Evaluate your routine: if you have pets or children at home, choose a color that doesn’t get dirty easily. “Gray in darker tones, earth tones, Fendi and Burgundy models work well in environments with greater circulation”, points out the architect;
  • Combining different colors: “if the sofa is of a striking color – such as emerald green, navy blue, dark gray -, bet on neutral rugs and lighter colors. Complement it with paintings and coffee table decorations in vibrant colors for striking environments”, suggests Tatiana;
  • Waterproofing always: for the professional, regardless of the color chosen for the sofa, waterproofing should be done as soon as possible. “In addition to facilitating daily cleaning, it also guarantees the durability of the piece”, she concludes.

Investing in a good sofa goes beyond color, as it is important to think about quality, the expectations created for the decoration, the model that best fits the style of the environment and the films that fit the space in which it will be installed.
