Red Sofa Ideas for Spring/Summer 2019


Red is the colour of energy, passion, love and intensity.

It is certainly one of the most striking colours you can incorporate into your living room. Red sofas and suites are a real statement, perhaps more so than any other everyday colour.

While blacks, beiges, browns and greys are all timeless, elegant and have endless popularity, some might perceive them as a little safe. Red sofas, on the other hand, are guaranteed to turn the heads of everyone who enters your home. But how do you choose the right one?

Here at Frank Knighton, we know everything there is to know about sofas – including how they can work with their surroundings to create a truly remarkable room.

Without further ado, here are 6 of our favourite red sofas incorporated into stunning living room arrangements.

The La-Z-Boy Zara

La-Z-Boy needs no introduction, and this red leather Zara corner group model is as eye-catching as they come. The rich colour and premium upholstering of this model contrasts beautifully with the vintage brickwork and clean hardwood floor to create a room that is dramatic and modern, but with a rustic charm.

Alstons Barcelona

Retro-modern combinations are at the forefront of home styling in 2019, and the superbly stylish Alstons Barcelona range in red fabric is a prime example of this. Against a backdrop of understated whites and greys, the deep red fabric finish ensures the red sofa is the centrepiece of the room. 

The Alstons Barcelona range is available in a variety of colours, but red is certainly a favourite of ours.

Sherborne Lynton

If traditional elegance is more your cup of tea, this Sherborne Lynton wing back red armchair may as well have been designed just for you. Featuring sumptuous red fabric, delicate details and exquisitely carved legs, the Sherborne Lynton is a classic choice that is right at home in front of a tasteful fireplace. The Lynton range is available in a variety of colours, and also in leather.

ROM Cadini

From traditional to super modern, the unique ROM Cadini suite in red or maroon is  the perfect addition to a contemporary, cosmopolitan living space. When choosing a red sofa for this kind of style, try contrasting against a neutral backdrop, such as grey, to really make it stand out and take centre stage in the room. 

Natuzzi Editions New Roma

This red reclining sofa from Natuzzi Editions is an absolute show stopper. The New Roma is available in a wide variety of colours, but we love the creative versatility and rich aesthetic of red. A red reclining sofa such as this is as arresting to look at as it is welcoming to sit on. Whatever backdrop you are working with, this is a type of red sofa with which you can’t go wrong.

The Chesterfield in red

Chesterfield sofas are among the most remarkable accomplishments in upholstering and sofa design. A red chesterfield sofa boasts sophistication and elegance, providing a true premium quality that cannot be replicated. Chesterfield is a symbol of British tradition, class and style. The craftsmanship demands admiration, and, despite its intricacies and details, a red Chesterfield can complement a wide range of room sizes, shapes and decors. Frank Knighton specialises in fully custom-made Chesterfield sofas in a range of colours and sizes.
