While solid colors are easier to decorate with, patterned sofas don`t show wear as quickly. The most durable and practical material is leather, which wears in, not out; the longer you have leather, the more patina it gets, whereas a fabric, no matter how good, will become worn out.
For apartment dwellers who might find themselves living with neutral walls and carpeting, slipcovers are also a wonderful option. Warmth and interest can be added to neutral spaces through the use of bright-colored slipcovers and interesting pieces of art.
The most important part of the sofa is the frame for the whole piece, which should be made of a kiln-dried hardwood such as maple, poplar, beach or oak instead of pine.
Soften a bold color, like this bright red, with a neutral color. The solid green and floral taupe pillows balance the bold colors without clashing. Coordinate different patterns with different shades of the same color for a colorful and unique touch to a basic couch.
If your chairs are made of wood, you have many options for painting. Consider whether you want your chairs to blend in with the rest of your kitchen`s decor or give the room a color pop. You can paint them in a solid color, or paint the legs or base one color and the seat another shade. Use the chair as your canvas and incorporate a unique pattern or design. You can choose a shabby chic or distressed look, or let the beauty of the wood grain show through a stain or color wash.
The cushions are what really make a sofa comfortable. The least expensive option is high-resiliency foam, which compresses during use and comes back to its natural shape. For real luxury, goose-down filling is the most expensive option, but it doesn`t offer much support and needs to be fluffed up often. A good compromise between comfort and budget is an inner core of foam topped with cotton batting surrounded by a cover filled with goose down. The foam center provides support for the soft feathers.
Round tables let you get more chairs around them, as do pedestal tables. Although the traditional country kitchen table is what comes to mind for this style, you can also find beautiful modern small kitchen tables made with metal pedestals and a variety of materials for the tops. One version has rounded chairs that, when pushed under the table, fit around the table edge—leaving only a small, circle-shaped footprint for the entire table set. Another modern small kitchen table idea is a Saarinen-style tulip table.
To paint a fabric seat, you can use either a spray paint made for fabric or brush-on paints designed for that purpose. Again, let your creativity guide you to create a unique design.
