On Trend: Bold Sofas Strike a Pose in Fall 2012

Don’t hesitate — find a couch that shouts with character! The picks for fall 2012 have bright colors, oversize detailing and massive prints to capture the attention. The trend is about boldness and individuality. Whether you select a bold pattern or color, let your very own aesthetic make the choice.

These glowing couches fall based on a renewed interest in neutral paint tones. By choosing grays and hot whites to your walls and trim, you are able to feature vivid splashes of color on your own decor. So instead of working with a couch as your neutral canvas, then change things up and decide on a statement-making piece. Let your cushions be neutral for a shift.
