Styling Tips on How to Make Your Modular Sofa Look Good

Today's post is a furniture style guide that delves into the world of modern modular sofas. A modular sofa, an often-overlooked living room option, adds variety, flexibility, and chic energy to your space. It also appears to be brand new. You might recall the saggy, blocky, and lame modular sofas of yesteryear. That's all about to change.

Let's look at what a modular sofa is and how you can style it to fit your style.

What's a Modular Sofa?

A modular sofa is a couch made up of multiple individual pieces that can be rearranged to change the look and feel of the piece. Modular sofas are usually composed of several pieces, including armless chairs, ottomans, corner chairs, and chaises.

The beauty of a modular sofa is that it can be customised to fit any space. Depending on your needs, you can create a small, intimate seating area or a large sprawling one. Plus, if you ever need to change things up or move houses, you can easily take your modular sofa with you!

How to Style a Modular Sofa

Now that we know what a modular sofa is, let's get into how to style them. Depending on your aesthetic, there are many ways you can go about this. Let's explore some ways to make your modular sofa look better:

1. Don't Go Crazy With the Pillows

This is a common mistake people make when styling any type of sofa, but it's especially important to keep in mind with a modular sofa. Since there are already a lot of individual pieces making up the couch, you don't want to add too many pillows or else it will start to look cluttered. Stick to two or three pillows max and choose ones that complement the overall colour scheme of your living room.

2. Incorporate Textures

Another great way to style a modular sofa is by incorporating different textures into the mix. This can be done by adding a blanket or throw over the back of the couch or by choosing pillows with interesting fabrics such as velvet or jute. Adding texture will not only make your sofa more visually interesting, but it will also make it cozier and inviting.

3. Go for Bold Colors

If you're looking to make a statement with your modular sofa, then go for bold colours! You can either choose a colourful sofa set or mix and match different colours for a more eclectic look. Either way, be sure to pick colours that complement each other, and that will brighten up your living room.

4. Stick to a Minimalist Aesthetic

If you prefer a more simplistic aesthetic, then there are ways to style your modular sofa to fit this look as well. Start by choosing a neutral colour palette for the couch itself and then add in some minimalistic accessories such as a few throw blankets or simple pillows. You can also forego accessories altogether and let the clean lines of the sofa speak for themselves.
