Living Room Update
One of the benefits of having a neutral sofa in your living room is it is very easy to update the look and feel of your space. You can do this by changing your rug, throw pillows, and tables. In this design I have shown pieces you can add to your space to create an updated look.
The neutral sofa base in this design is the Outerbanks Sofa from Arhaus. It has a curved silhouette, nail heads, and Charles of London arm style. The stock fabric is team oyster but there are a number of custom fabrics and colors to choose from.
How To Design Around A Neutral Sofa
Changing out a few or all of the following pieces will create a new look in your space. Personally, I love the Gray Contemporary Zebra Print with Faux Silk Highlights Area Rug and Gleaming Primrose Mirror. Adding the pop of blue in the pillows will create interest to this otherwise neutral design.

5. Delaney Round Marble Nesting Coffee Tables
The Delaney Collection proves that statement pieces don’t need to take up a lot of space. Pairing marble with an antique brass framework, the airy, simplified profile of these nesting tables is great for small spaces and gathering around for conversation.
6. Anouk 28″ Table Lamp Set (Set of 2)
Traditional with a twist, this table lamp is a perfect pick for bookending the sofa or bringing brightness to the master suite. Its crystal base takes on the look of an antique candlestick for a touch of old-world charm that’s firmly rooted in the modern age, while a white cotton drum shade topped by a crystal finial completes the design.
7. Parisian Side Table
In homage to the centuries-old églomisé tradition, the backs of two glass shelves are carefully gilded with antiqued silver leaf. The result: A refined, reflective finish we just love. A rich ebony frame and antiqued brass details add nice finishing touches. For effortless entertaining, the top shelf doubles as a removable tray.
8. Gleaming Primrose Mirror
It’s love at first sight with this stunning, vintage-inspired mirror fit with jeweled adornments at its apex and edges. Placed at an entryway console, leaned against a wall, or positioned over a fireplace mantel, this mirror magnifies any room with a grandiose, yet delicate appeal.
9. Book Nook Armchair, Ink Blue, Performance Velvet
Soft, subtle curves make our Book Nook Armchair an inviting spot to curl up with a new novel. The slim-lined profile makes it great for small spaces and cozy corners.
10. Maisie Side Table
With its sculptural metal base and smooth marble top, our Maisie Side Table makes a modern statement displayed alone.
