No living area is complete without a sofa, and the Barker and Stonehouse range of sofas is full of diverse designs and varying sizes to suit any space.
If you already have furniture in your living room, have decorated your home a certain way, or are still planning your ideal lounge, it’s difficult to know what colour sofa to purchase in case something clashes. If this sounds familiar, or you simply prefer a long-lasting sofa that isn’t too bright or garish, we recommend a grey sofa.
Grey is one of the most versatile colours for a sofa. It creates a calm atmosphere, is low-profile, and is neutral, meaning it works well with most spaces. In addition, a grey sofa is highly adaptable, as it can be easily dressed up with cushions and throws to suit your existing décor.
One example of this versatility is the Daxon Pillow Back. This beautiful blend of modern and retro comes with plump scatter cushions in solid colours or geometric patterns, both of which look great against the sofa’s grey upholstery. You also have the option to choose between brushed steel or country oak feet for the sofa – equally stylish options that complement the grey fabric.
Choosing an adaptable grey sofa doesn’t mean you miss out on all of the decisions though. Our sofas come in a range of upholstery materials, including velvet, fabric and leather.
Our assortment of fabric sofas offers the ultimate choice for superb and luxurious comfort. The Myers Extra Large is a grey fabric sofa that provides ample seating while perfectly blending retro style with a modern feel. Its wooden feet raise it off the floor to give it a light appearance, while the soft but supportive foam-filled cushioning is ready to embrace you. Similarly, the Lassington is another large sofa which combines the old with the new, this time pairing gently scrolled arms and patterned fabric with thick, contemporary pillows and cushions.
When we say we have something for everyone, we truly mean it. While grey is the perfect colour for encouraging neutrality, it is still able to create attractive, eye-catching furniture. The Whitchurch is a grand, split frame sofa. It is large and soft enough to accommodate a big family, lends sophistication to any room with its studded button detailing, steals attention with its two-tone grey fabric finish, and comes with striking scatter cushions.
However, grey fabric isn’t the only material that manages to pull off this incredible feat of marrying subtlety with boldness. We also have a huge selection of leather sofas for you to browse, with some equally stunning designs to discover. For example, the Dorchester is a similarly large sofa with grey fabric cushions, but a studded leather upholstered frame. It looks opulent and elegant all in one, and will surely turn the heads of visitors.
We also have grey leather sofas that are beautiful without being quite so bold, like the Azalea, which comes in a range of sizes, including as a 1.5, 2, and 3-seater. The tufted back, high arms and firm finish make it appear carved from marble, but it may surprise you at just how soft and comfortable it is when you sit on it. Azalea is also available in luxurious velvet for a more glamorous look with a sumptuously soft finish.
Alternatively, opt for a simple and modern design with a sofa that prioritises comfort above all else, like the Ercol Enna. This grey leather sofa looks fantastic in any space; large or small, bright or dark. It’s subtle enough not to distract your guests, but be careful letting them sit on it… they won’t want to leave.
