16 Statement Sofas to Consider Blowing Your Budget On

When it comes to decorating, most people tend to follow the same, tried-and-true, low-risk method: Buy a nice but ultimately unremarkable sofa and bring personality into the room via colorful or patterned throw pillows, statement-y rugs, a killer gallery wall, or dramatic lighting. But today, we’re wondering if it might be worth it to consider throwing away that number one rule of decorating and making the sofa the focal point of your whole room. After all, there are so many plush, velvety, gorgeously-hued couches on the market right now (not to mention the occasional vintage Vladamir Kagan or Mario Bellini supersofa) that falling back on some bland, tufted, gray sectional seems like the ultimate missed opportunity. And while some of these options might cost as much as your whole redecorating budget, it never hurts to shoot for the moon.
