10 Ideas For A Dark Blue Sofa For Your Living Room

A dark blue sofa can add color, style, and life to any living room. If you’re looking for a way to add some personality to your space without being too bold, then a dark blue sofa might be the perfect option for you.

Here are 10 ideas for how you can design your living room around a dark blue sofa.

1. Get A Statement Velvet Blue Sofa And A Gold-Frame Table

If you’re looking for a show-stopping dark blue sofa for your living room, consider getting a blue velvet sofa and add black pillows. This will add a touch of sophistication and contrast that can be hard to find elsewhere. Or add baby blue throw pillows to soften the look. 

If you want to take things up a notch, try adding a gold-framed table to the mix. Not only will this provide some much-needed storage space, but it’ll also become the focal point of the room in no time.

If you’re renovating your living room’s structure as well, consider installing floor-to-ceiling windows to let in lots of natural light in the premium living room.

2. Get A Chic Loveseat If You’re A Couple

If you’re living on your own or as a couple, a loveseat is a perfect way to get a dark blue sofa for your living room without taking up too much space. And since they come in all shapes and sizes, it’s easy to find one that matches both your needs and your budget.

Loveseats also look great when decorated with brightly-colored throw pillows, so feel free to choose a sunny yellow for extra contrast.

Add black, round tables to complement the yellow throw pillows, and set up a feature wall with geometric form patterns in shades of blue to make for a very chic living room.

3. A Simple Sofa Accentuated With Rustic Carpet

When it comes to living rooms, there’s nothing quite as classic as a simple sofa with an accent color. In this case, we’ve chosen blue, beige, and orange as the colors to really make the space pop. 

And to ground everything, we’ve added in some natural black and white artwork which helps to create a sense of symmetry and balance. If you want to go for contrasting tones, get a dark wood, functional sofa stand to have a place to put your coffee – even if you have a table.

4. Brighten Your Dark Blue Sofa With Pillows Of Different Shades

One of the easiest and most affordable ways to add personality to your dark blue sofa is by using colorful pillows. Try different shades of blue, like light sky blue or navy, as well as grays, golds, and blacks and whites for a look that’s truly unique. You can also switch these out depending on the season or your mood – the possibilities are endless!

5. Decorate Your Dark Blue Sofa With Cheerful Colors

If you’re looking for a way to add some brightness to your dark blue sofa, consider using yellow as your accent color. Not only will this create a cheerful and vibrant atmosphere, but it’ll also help to contrast the blue perfectly. You can also add yellow lights or lamps to the mix to really make things stand out.

And if you’re looking for a finishing touch, why not get a black rug? This will help to ground the space and create a more cohesive look overall.

6. A Sectional Blue Sofa With Pink And White Throw Pillows

A large, sectional dark blue sofa is perfect for a grand, luxurious living room. You can add pink and white pillows to really make the space pop, and you can also paint the walls pink to create a truly opulent environment. If you really want to splurge, consider adding a chandelier or crystal lighting fixture to really top off the look.

7. Wood-Legged Dark Blue Sofa With Fawn Throw Rug

A wood-legged dark blue sofa with a fawn throw rug is perfect for a rustic, country-style living room. The white patterned gray carpet adda some texture to the space, while the abstract orange and black artwork on the wall provide some interest and color.

This would be a great way to add some sophistication and personalization to your living room. Add in a few potted plants to bring the ‘earthy’ feel to this rustic living room. 

You could also choose to match the drapes with the sofa (dark blue) or match them with the carpet (gray); the former will make your living room more sophisticated and organized and the latter will have a cool and calming aesthetic.

8. A Sectional Navy Blue Sofa With Silver-Gray Throw Pillows

A sectional dark blue sofa can be the perfect choice for smaller living rooms since it takes up less space than a traditional three-seater. To soften the look, you can add silver-gray throw pillows, drapes, and a leafy plant. This helps to inject some life into the room and make it feel more spacious.

9. A Dark Blue Sofa With Calming Sea Green Walls

If you want to make your living the ultimate relaxing space, start by painting your walls a soothing sea green. Introduce a marble tabletop to accompany your dark blue sofa – it is the perfect way to add some luxury and elegance.

You can keep the look minimal with some black and white artwork on the wall and a few potted plants. This will create a calm and relaxing atmosphere in your living room.

And if you’re looking for a finishing touch, why not try adding some sea green throw pillows? This will help to brighten up the space and add a pop of color.

10. Go Traditional With A Deep Blue Sofa With White Throw Pillows And A Bookcase

A dark blue couch with white throw pillows can be a beautiful addition to any living room. It can provide a pop of color and add some style and elegance to the space. You can also choose to add a white upholstered chair to the mix to really brighten things up. And to ground the space, you can choose a wooden floor. This will create a classic and timeless look in your living room.

Add colorful art pieces to the room to make it even more appealing and if you want to showcase your love for books, have a blue or white bookcase in a corner.

11. Complimentary Mention: Go Festive With A Royal Blue Velvet Sofa Set

If you’re looking for a festive setting consider using a dark blue sofa as your main piece. You can add lots of lightning and colorful ornaments to really make things pop. And if you want to add some warmth to the space, try using yellow throw pillows. This will help to create a cheerful atmosphere.

You can also add a black and gray rug to the mix to ground the space and create a more cohesive look.

Dark Blue Sofa Living Room Ideas

Dark blue sofas are a classic choice for all sizes of living rooms and you really can’t go wrong with a dark blue sofa for your living room, especially if you’re looking to inject some life into it. It’s also versatile enough that it goes well with many existing styles and themes.
