Style Your Sofa with Cushions & Throws
Adding cushions and throws to your sofa is a simple and cost effect way to help bring your living room to life. It creates a mood. Formal or informal, minimalist or cosy. Treat your senses with the colours you love to look at, and the textures you love to touch. Use your living room decor as inspiration, or a painting that adorns the wall. Match cushions and throws or just mix-match your way to your perfect look. This step by step guide will help to inspire you.
Sofa: Gifted from DFS, this beautiful Trafalgar 3 Seater Sofa comes in 14 colours. It also comes with a free 15 year frame and frame springs guarantee. And you can opt for a protective coating to help keep it clean. Perfect if you have small children – we’ve actually seen through two birthday parties and it still looks new. Ours is navy velvet and also has the Eaziglide technology, allowing us to easily slide our sofa around the room. For more information visit dfs.ie
