What Houzz contributors are saying:
9. Same material, different patterns. The weight and texture of a fabric is key — choosing a similar type of fabric for accent pillows, poufs and chairs can help make your striped sofa fit in. For example, in the space shown here, a rough, textured striped sofa is accented with a few equally nubby pillows and a kilim pouf. If you have a fine linen sofa, try pairing it with cotton voile pillows; a velvet sofa would call for something thick and luxurious, like wool (or more velvet).10. Metallics. Gleaming silver, burnished bronze and shiny gold work as neutrals, and do a brilliant job of livening up a dull room. If you feel your space needs a bit of a boost, try pairing your striped sofa with a metallic leather pouf, sculptural metal coffee table, wire chair or gleaming silver pendant lamp.Tell us: Do you own a striped sofa?
