Nothing makes a living room look more inviting than a big, beautiful sofa. While in decades past the fireplace might have been the focal point of a lounge, these days it’s all about the relaxation, comfort, and social interaction that a suite of stylish sofas can bring; as well as the aesthetic effects, of course. If you want your sofa to stand out from the crowd and make a big impact in a room, take a look at our top ‘statement sofa’ picks, all available both online and in Harvey Norman stores nationwide.
If your living room has a neutral colour scheme that needs a pop of colour, look no further than the Capri. A vibrant red floral motif covers the arm and chaise of this sofa, leading into a much more low-key cream fabric with plump scatter cushions. With compact proportions, it’s also a great option if you have your heart set on a corner sofa, but can’t quite fit one into the space you have to work with.
The stunningly beautiful Rochelle is a throwback to the classic Chesterfield sofa design, but with plenty of modern accents it has a place in a contemporary lifestyle too. Button back detailing, scrolled arms, studded outlines and truffle feet exude timeless elegance, making this piece perfect for period style decorative schemes or as an accent piece in a more modern home.
With floral printed or striped scatter cushions, a wooden plinth base and graceful slimline arms, the Casey has just the right amount of feminine flair to make it an outstanding feature in a room. With those eye-catching cushions there’s little need for additional accessories – so it’s even eliminated decorating difficulties for you! And better yet, this dusty blue shade is perfectly on trend.
A lot of leather sofas have the tendency to look more or less the same; not so with the Lorenza. Ultramodern with a touch of retro about it, it’s just the piece to fit into a chic, contemporary living room. The neutral colour pictured below keeps it from being too ‘out there’ – but a few splashes of colour in the form of cushions or throws can always be added to brighten things up.
The Lanza sofa is another luxurious leather marvel. Think of it like a beautiful blank canvas that you can dress up however you like; with bursts of colour for a fun twist, with metal and wood for some industrial chic, or with black and grey for some monochrome style. Wooden feet and a unique arm design keep the look interesting, as does the compact yet still spacious corner unit.
As far as leather sofas go, you can’t get much better than the Bedford. The exquisite upholstery comes with a distinctive aged look that only improves with use – so no need to worry about bumps and scrapes. Minimal design detailing lets the leather grain take centre stage – we recommend adding just one or two scatter cushions of your choosing to really let this sofa shine.
Don’t forget almost all of our sofas come with multiple customisable options, so you can create the perfect sofa to suit both your home and your personal style.
