3 Ways to Style a Brown Sofa

We are all about the year of brown. Bring it on! To help give you some pillow styling ideas for a brown sofa, we’ve put together three different looks. (P.S: The beautiful brown sofa featured is the Maddox Leather Sofa from Restoration Hardware). Check ‘em out below:

  1. Keep it neutral + modern

    When it comes to couch makeovers, the magic is in the pillows. Opt for ivory and grey cushions to create a sophisticated and versatile look. These soft hues not only complement the warmth of the brown but they also add a touch of modern. Experiment with different pillow sizes and textures to create depth and visual interest. A neutral palette opens up a world of possibilities, allowing you to easily switch up your decor without overwhelming the space.

  2. Mixing brown and black

    Contrary to popular belief, brown and black can coexist harmoniously in your decor! Use this combination to make a bold statement with your brown sofa. Introduce black accents – be it throw pillows, rugs, or artwork – to create a striking contrast in your living room. 

  3. Go monochromatic (my personal fave!!)
    For a bold and cohesive aesthetic, embrace the monochromatic trend with our chestnut-colored pillows. Celebrate the diverse spectrum of brown shades by incorporating various tones in your decor. This creates a harmonious and visually appealing ensemble that radiates warmth and comfort. To avoid monotony, play with different textures and patterns within the same color range. This approach not only showcases your brown couch as the focal point but it also adds a sense of depth and style into your living space.
Whether you prefer the understated charm of neutral tones, keeping it monochromatic, or getting bold with black, each approach offers a unique way to showcase your personal style.


Experiment with these ideas and let your brown couch become the canvas for a living space that reflects your individual personality.
