Why It Works: Statement-Making Upholstered Furniture

Every room should have at least one eye-catching feature. This could range from a piece of art to a bold accent pillow to a unique table. In more unusual instances, it’s a bigger-ticket item like a sofa or chair. One of the cardinal rules of decorating is to begin with a neutral foundation and add statement pieces in smaller doses. After all, it can be frustrating to spend so much money on a basic piece that should last years, only to tire of it when the next wave of trends hit. But the rules were made to be broken. We’ve rounded up our favorite bold upholstered furniture that kicked each room up a notch. Read on to see our picks, and get inspired to add a bold piece of furniture to your own space.
