How to Decorate a Burgundy-Colored Sofa


A burgundy sofa is a bold and distinctive piece of furniture that can add elegance to a formal living room or provide a cushy sanctuary for a great room. Wherever you choose to place the sofa, you want ensure that the rest of the room complements the piece. The burgundy shade and the size of the sofa provide a punch of color to a space and require that surrounding tones complement, rather than clash.

Things You'll Need

  • Throw pillows
  • Quilt
  • Afghan
  • Dark wood furniture
  • Neutral paint colors
  • Neutral lamps and shades
  • Decorate the burgundy sofa with throw pillows. Choose colors that contrast pleasantly with the burgundy color, such as dark green, purple and gold.

  • Drape a multi-colored quilt over the back of the sofa. Pick flattering colors that do not clash with the burgundy sofa. Or place an afghan over one end of the sofa and two to three throw pillows on the opposite end for a cozy and inviting seating area.

  • Situate dark wood furniture around the burgundy sofa. End tables on each side, a sofa table behind the couch and a coffee table in front all help provide a distinctive setting.

  • Paint walls behind the burgundy sofa a neutral color such as sand or almond. Keep lamps and lampshades neutral to accent the sofa, rather than detracting from it.
