Question...

I am curious, if you were going to buy a new sofa today,
What color would you buy?
And
What do you have now?
=)


I have chocolate brown, but sure swoon over a medium gray.

Can't wait to hear from you!

currently we have a white basketweave linen sofa. If I were to buy our sofa again today (now that we have two children on the way) I would buy the exact same color but in a machine washable denim fabric instead.

Right now, we have a taupe sofa which went perfectly in our previous house, but not so much in our new house. I am actually wanting a chocolate brown sofa next. Trying to work on a palette of brown, white, gold, and gray.

Love that last picture you posted!

I currently have a khaki colored sofa, and I always seem to play it safe so I hate to admit I would probably buy another in the same color. It seems to go with everything. I just change out the pillows and accessories when I want a new look. I do have to admit I am dying to purchase a white sofa. They look so clean and crisp! Of course, it would have to be a slipcover so future babies won't ruin it.

Hello! We have slipcovered sofa's in a creamy white. I love that I can easily clean up any messes that happen! I am thinking about having a new slip made for one of my sofa's in a ticking stripe.

I would love to have a cream colored sofa but right now (and I guess until Logan is a little older) we have an olive green color sofa.

Bromeliad said...

Right now we have white.

Next time around, i would do charcoal grey.

Michelle said...

Right now we have a dark khaki color. If we were kidless, I'd have white. Since we're not, I'd love grey.

I am pinching my pennies to someday be able to buy my dream charcoal grey sofa. For now I am living with 2 sofas: one chocolate brown leather and one light taupe microfiber.

I'm eagerly awaiting a new raspberry linen and white wood sofa I've ordered - it'll be the most retiring of my bunch of merrily patterned existing ones. I really like the grey and white French-style one in your images.

Currently in the family room we have dusty green, but in the formal living room we have chocolate brown...I like the idea of a dark grey couch!

Sharstin said...

fun! i have tan--and I think i would buy grey or light blue!

Leah said...

I have a green couch but maybe next will get a brown. For large furniture like that I like to get solid colors.

Julie Holloway said...

I would love a Ditte sofa from Anthro or a settee from Ballard Designs. It would be fun to have a huge, chunky leather sofa (like from RH) in the basement. So good with spills and such...this, of course, is a money-is-no-option dream list! Julie

For the past nine years I've had a traditional floral sofa with beige background, but would LOVE a solid cream color.

Nikki said...

current - khakish taupe
next - charcoal grey

emily said...

I would love a grey sofa (I've been on a grey kick recently)!

We currently have a khaki colored sofa with a subtle herringbone texture.

Kim said...

I have a floral sofa in the formal living room and a leather one in the den...but would LOVE to have a white one here in my NC home. Been lookin at ideas for the day we buy our beach house, hey! a girl can dream!

Val said...

I would say robins egg blue...but, that's just today!!! Tomorrow I think lime green. I'm loving your blog music.

I would probably get something in a neutral...probably would lean towards a tan. I change my color schemes WAY too much to justify getting a trendy color. Right now I have a burgandy, leather couch...10 years old..but VERY comfortable.

Right now we have a very dark green couch. Sometimes I wish we had a deep,dark purple couch, or tan. :)

Lovely Little Nest said...

Definitely gray! It's my favorite neutral.

We currently have hideous "Arizona" patterned couches...covered by oatmeal colored stretch suede slipcovers from Walmart.com :)

You in the market for a new couch??

Jesse said...

I have a chocolate brown, but so covet that smokey gray! Just dreaming. =)

carla said...

Right now I have a red damask comfy sofa. If I were going to buy one now, I think I'd like charcoal gray, more modern, and still comfy. By the way LOVE the last pic on this post. The tile is original & I think I want it.

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

We have a sage green microfiber couch right now - but I'd live a big white slipcovered sectional. (I think - subject to change).

Beki - TheRustedChain said...

I would buy the one in the 4th photo.

We currently have a taupe fluffy sofa. 11 years old. Not the prettiest, but thankfully it's fairly neutral. It kind of disappears with the right distractions around it.

But I want one with legs, raised a bit off the floor.

sara said...

Well, we have a very light taupe sofa in our living room and a chocolate brown sofa in our sitting room - I like both, but they both have their issues (the lighter one shows stains quickly, the dark one shows up the dog's blonde fur!). I think if you don't have light colored animals that shed a ridiculous amount, chocolate brown is the way to go!

i have chocolate brown now, and would probably get either a slate grey, or a chocolate/grey mix. can't wait until it's time for me to pick out a new one . . .
