Today I’m going to show you how to style one sofa three ways.
Behold, what I think is the world’s most versatile, and comfortable sofa: the Lounge II 3-Piece Sectional from Crate & Barrel.
I own this exact sofa, in this exact material (which is Taft / Cement, one of the standard options). It wears like iron, even though it’s very light. I’ve spilled any number of food and beverage on it and it cleans right on up. We’ve had it three years so far and it still looks brand new.
I’mma keep it real, though – it was in investment; even on sale, it was more than three grand. It has exceptional quality and classic lines – things you want for an investment piece. But, you know what? Every time we lounge on it we sigh with contentment, which is the first step to a lifelong love affair with a piece of furniture.
The next step? Making sure it’s versatile enough to go the long haul, as styles and needs change. And this sofa has versatility in spades.
Layered, Textured, Eclectic. I love this coffee table – such a bold color, and a truly beautiful texture. Paired with a great ceramic stool as a side table that ties the teal, pink and rust color scheme and a mess of gorgeous pillows this sofa is transformed into the coziest boho style.
Classic, Soft, Neutral. A turned wood coffee table with a greige painted finish brings a feminine touch to the clean lines of the sofa. A fun cloth covered side table and a textured ceramic lamp adds a traditional style. The pillows are simple but fun – pom poms never disappoint, and these pillows are ripe for a monogram. Mirror framed botanical prints (of my favorite creamy magnolias) bring a touch of glamour to this design.
Bold, Modern, Colorful. A mid-century style glass and walnut coffee table reflects the clean lines of the sofa (and is also the table I’ve paired with my sofa at home). The walnut finish is carried over to the side table, with a modern marble top. This gorgeous ceramic lamp by KleinReid for Room & Board is a colorful accent to the neutral foundation. One pillow in a great modern print is repeated 3 times for impact. The finishing touch is the handcrafted relief wall art in a fresh color scheme.
So, when you’re ready to get the sofa that makes you sigh with contentment every time you sit down, and that will be with you for the long haul, let me know. I can help you find that dream sofa, and find you the other things to match your style, whatever your budget is.
It really is the best sofa on the planet. Learn how to make it work for you.
