Our Favorite Classic Blue Sofas This Season (Pantone Color of 2020)

In a year that kept us at home on the couch for months on end, the saving grace was Pantone’s official color, Classic Blue, the inspiration for our favorite Classic Blue sofas this season. The color experts at Pantone couldn’t have chosen a more fitting color for a turbulent year. PANTONE 19-4052 is the color of tranquility, offering a refuge for the spirit. A couch from our collection of more than a dozen blue couches and pull-out sofa beds will quickly become the focal point of your living room, no matter what décor you love. This cool tone is classic, adaptable to any style and right on trend.

2020 pantone color of the year

 

  • The stylish Rachel comes as a sofa, queen sleeper sofa and loveseat. With its rich Aspen Marine blue upholstery, tapered wood legs, and five bold graphic throw pillows, it is a perfect fit for modern and retro decor styles. The sleeper sofas have either basic or gel mattresses.
  • The Passport Sofa & Loveseat brings a slightly darker Aspen Valley blue front and center. With its classic profile, padded arms and back and reversible seat cushions and back pillows, it provides the right palette for the evolution of your design style throughout the next decade.
  • The Brazil Sofa & Loveseat in lush cobalt looks equally great in a casual den and a formal living room - and it’s durable enough to hold up to kids and pets! Add the Brazil Ottoman in Cobalt to complete your look.

Ideas for Showcasing Your Own Classic Blue Couch

Colorful accents in armchairs, pillows, rugs, art and window treatments beautifully integrate your favorite blue sofa into your design scheme.

The Pantone company created five unique color palettes to show the versatility of PANTONE 19-4052 Classic Blue in design and how it can affect the mood of a room. “Ponder” is an array of cool blues and soothing shades meant to impart a calming meditative feel. “Snorkel” plays tropical hues such as coral, lime and soft pink off Classic Blue. “Desert Twilight” melts from Classic Blue to warm metallic copper and gold hues and Red Violet found in the early evening sky. Intriguing “Exotic Tastes” reflects natural seasonings, condiments and healthy foods such as mango, honey and bayberry. The “Untraditional” palette mixes things up with unexpected combinations, including green, cherry red and shimmering brass.

Each one of these palettes encourages you to engage all your senses in creating a room design. Begin with one as a template or create your own look using our color accent tips as a guide.

  • Bring in Complementary Warm Colors

Classic Blue and other hues within the blue family such as navy, indigo, cobalt and teal are cool tones. Adding complementary warm tones such as pops of vibrant orange, red and yellow to the room in a throw pillow, graphic print or even an accent chair gives your room and warm, spirited lift. If bright orange feels like too much try burnt orange, peach or apricot.

A dark blue couch can become the neutral element that grounds a palette of bold, bright colors such as red, peppermint green and yellow in a modern contemporary design. Adding a graphic blue, green and ivory or blue, red and tan rug can tie room together. A rule of thumb is to match the secondary color in a patterned rug to your sofa and match the third rug color to your pillows, drapes, wall color or other accents in the room.

  • Accent with Metals

The glimmer of a warm gold or brass lamp, sculpture or chandelier will beautifully highlight the rich, blue of your sofa.

  • Think Blue and Neutrals

For a subdued sophistication, pair your blue sofa with neutral ivory, white, black, tan and brown. Bring in a soft blush Mid-century Cambridge Accent chair. Or go blue on blue, working with shades of blue lighter and darker than your blue sofa - a Meggett Accent Chair in a soft midnight blue graphic print, for example. Add curtains and an area rug with a floral pattern or pinstripes of blue, gray and ivory to beautifully unify the room.

We hope these ideas have inspired you. Are you ready transform your home with a blue sofa?
