Attractive and stylish, grey sofas manage to be both classic and contemporary at the same time. From dark, slate grey tones to light grey fabrics, this versatile shade can be paired with bright, bold colours for a vibrant interior or teamed with cooler shades for a Scandi-style feel. Perfect for living rooms of all shapes and sizes, a grey sofa will make the perfect centrepiece for your seating area.
Grey is one of the most popular colour choices for sofas of all sizes. In smaller spaces, a grey couch will give your other furnishings plenty of room to breathe and won’t dominate the design theme. In larger rooms, grey sectional sofas can be used to great effect to create generous, comfortable seating areas that fill the space without defining your interior design theme.
If you’ve already decorated your living room, a grey sofa will work with your colour scheme no matter what other tones you’ve chosen. This makes grey sofas ideal for people replacing an old sofa or looking for a furnishing that will simply slot in with their existing belongings.
Choose a light grey sofa to make your room feel bigger and brighter or opt for a dark, slate grey piece to create a cosy, intimate feel.
Although it’s a neutral tone, grey packs a lot of punch when it comes to style and presence. Pair your grey sofa with matching cushions to emphasise your theme or use contrasting colours to really bring your furnishing to life.
Bright yellow, pink and blue rugs, cushions and throws can all work really well with grey sofas. Alternatively, if you want to go for a contemporary, fully grey lounge, stick with soft furnishings in your favourite neutral tone.

One of the great things about grey is that it works with virtually all other colours. From bright yellow to blue and purple to pink, grey will enhance your chosen colour scheme without clashing with your favourite tones.
When choosing cushions for your grey sofa, look for a fabric that brings out the other colours in your interior and complements your existing furnishings. Both dark and light grey sofas can be paired with bright, bold or neutral colours, so feel free to experiment with different shades to find the cushions that perfectly suit your interior.
If you want your rug to fade into the background, choose a tone that matches either your sofa or your flooring. However, if you want your living room rug to be an integral part of your interior design, opt for a pattern that’s bright, bold and reflects some of the other colours in the space.
