When it comes to choosing your sofa, sometimes it can be all too easy to play it safe.


While there's no doubt that neutral sofas have their place in calming earth-toned schemes, a bright, statement sofa has the power to transform a lacklustre space into somewhere truly show-stopping - and you can't get any more show-stopping than yellow!

Whether it's zingy lemon, decadent mustard or rich paprika, the colour yellow evokes feelings of happiness, positivity and cheer, meaning that a yellow sofa is guaranteed to have an uplifting impact on your space.
