Speak in living room with black sofa already brings us to a glamourous environment, but very dark and heavy, is not it? Well, that will depend a lot on the construction and composition of the environment. The time has passed when the black sofas steal all the light and the space of the rooms!
Today, the black sofa is synonymous with a contemporary composition, in addition to being super versatile in relation to its materials and in combination with other colors. So they are coming back with everything for interior decoration.
After all, we do not talk about "basic black" without good reason, do we?
In today's post we will talk about the possibilities of the black sofa in the decoration, plus its advantages and a super inspiring gallery for you to start planning your own!
Black sofa: the advantages
For those who already had light or colored sofas this advantage draws much attention: the black sofa hides more stains and dirt than the lighter versions. This does not mean it does not need to be washed! But maintenance can be done in a simpler way.
In fact, the leather versions of the black sofa carry this double advantage: the cleaning can be done in an easier and superficial way, with a cloth and the right product for this type of material.
Another advantage of the black sofa is the one we've talked about: black is a basic color that allows a multitude of combinations. From white, gray to colorful, the choice of combinations will greatly influence the lighting and lightness of the environment. This allows you to move between different styles (almost) in a cushion exchange!
How to Break the Intensity of Black
That's the main reason why people find the black sofa too heavy: this color, although basic, is very intense. In color psychology, it is treated as the color of power and mystery, but its versatility can turn those meanings very easily!
The first tip (and most importantly) not to let black weigh so much in your environment is: use contrasts! White is the most classic color, and it is the right color for this paper.
But if you do not want a B & W-based environment, think of raw tones, pastels, or the off-white carton. These light tones offer a good contrast of light in black (even if it is predominant) and may end up inserting a secondary color, such as light blue, light green or pink.
Another tip is: for younger and relaxed environments, it is worth using other vibrant colors. The black and red combination is super classic, but the yellow and black is coming in with everything in the decor!
And remember that contrasting warmer colors creates a more fun and relaxed balance with black while combinations with blue, purple and green can end up leaving the environment colder and heavier. Be aware of this when decorating!
From contemporary to classic in an instant!
Black sofas are almost always associated with a more contemporary mood - in the minimalist and industrial style, they are even more recurring. But some compositions can come very easily in a style considered classic and sophisticated.
This will depend on both the choice of the sofa model and the choice of other decorative elements, whether they are cushions, chandeliers, corner or center tables, and even objects to be placed in that environment.
After all, the Chesterfield sofa model, created in the early twentieth century by the Earl of Chesterfield, Phillipe Stanhope, appeals to various styles of decoration, from classic to industrial. What will set the style of the environment is the composition of it with the rest of the décor of the room.
So our tip is: do not just think about choosing the sofa to set your room. All furniture, objects and even the choice of wallpaper or paint influence the style that your room can take.
