It’s official, dark blue is the new black. Whether Navy, Indigo, Midnight, Oxford or Sapphire, deep blue hues are the chicest way to turn to the dark side! These rich, decadent shades are warmer and more sophisticated than flat black. There’s just something inexplicably elegant about dark blue.
Choose your Blues
At The Lounge Co. you’ll find this stylish shade as velvet, chenille, linen and leather. It also makes an appearance in our collection of accent fabrics, as a refined geometric or the background of moody florals. Choose your favourite blues and get up to 6 fabric swatches delivered for free.
If blue’s your hue - why not commit? Build up the layers; a blue sofa, a blue rug and blue accessories. Not necessarily the same shade, but a palette of deep, calming blues will be serene and sophisticated. Here’s a few ideas...
1. Our Vintage Leather - Shadow is the darkest of blues and will add drama to your lounge. We’ve given Holly a feminine touch by adding cushions in dark florals.
2. Dramatic colour with beautiful texture; our Family Friendly Plush Chenille is the perfect choice for a family home. We’ve overdosed on pattern by accessorising with Jungle Shade cushions and a modern rug.
3. Dark blue velvet is effortlessly elegant - even better our Family Friendly Soft Velvet uses Aquaclean Technology which means everyday stains can be removed with a damp cloth. We’ve accessorised Briony with a range of pared-back blues.
Dark blue acts as a great base to which you can add other colours. If all blue is a little too much, here’s our suggestions of some great partners to this decadent shade:
Rich yellow such as Golden Spice adds brightness to navy, whilst a neutral like Llama Tail will lighten up the darkest of blues. If you feel that masculine navy needs a feminine touch, why not add some blush pink - our Family Friendly Soft Velvet - Rose Quartz is the perfect partner.
Sofa: Paloma 4 Seater in Velvet Touch - Midnight Indigo.
Sofa: Briony 3 Seater in Family Friendly Soft Velvet - African Sapphire.
In the Navy
A navy corner sofa makes a great statement piece in a large lounge. We’ve teamed our Imogen Sofa with a leather footstool for a pair that's classically cool. Adding accessories in metallic tones will lighten the look and add a touch of glamour.
Being blue never looked so good...
