What Houzz contributors are saying:
Adding colour to monochromatic furnitureIn the great trials of mixing and matching, style rules are there to be broken. Sometimes, combinations can surprise you and a pattern or textured fabric you might usually overlook or even positively dislike as a standalone, might turn out to be the perfect foil to the rest of your pattern clash. So, play with the unexpected to create something novel. The styling of this vintage leather sofa and mirrored Willy Rizzo vintage bar/coffee table shows how an eclectic array of cushions can add colour and quirky style. Try clashing styles of cushions, rather than just colours or textures. Team a modern geometric print with a traditional flowery design or embroidered or macramé-style gypsy cushion. The contrast of styles, when used in multiples, can look surprisingly edgy.
