Monochrome Magic

Black, white or both? If colour leaves you cold, then a stylish monochrome palette could be just the ticket. Being bold with black and white will give a fresh, clean, and unquestionably sophisticated look to your lounge. A black sofa is super-stylish and will hide a multitude of sins! A white sofa will take a little more care but will make a stunning statement.

Black and White Sofas

Our range of black and (almost) white fabrics includes linen, chenille and leather. If you fancy mixing the two shades, our range of accent fabrics are a great way to introduce the monochrome trend into your lounge. Choose your favourite fabrics and get up to 8 swatches delivered for free.

Black and White Fabrics

Be Bold with Black

Embrace the dark side and go all black! A black leather sofa will catch the light and shine out of a dark interior. Instead of black walls, paint in a deep charcoal grey is softer and warmer. Add cushions and a rug in dark patterns to break up the solid colour.

Pale and Interesting

If the thought of a black lounge is just too dreary, keep it bright with white on white! Ok – maybe everything in pure white would be a bit too stark, that’s why we’ve chosen pale shades of cream and off-white. A cream sofa might seem like a scary proposition, but if you choose a Family Friendly fabric, you can wipe away everyday stains with ease.

Monochrome Mix

If you'd rather mix your monochrome palette, add Scandi-inspired accessories to a sofa in a solid colour. Bold geometric patterns make a real statement and will add a modern touch to your home. A black sofa set against a pale grey or off-white wall will look stylish and striking.
