Decorate Your Living Room with Gray Sofas

Last update: 31 December, 2018

Gray sofas are totally in style. Gray is actually one of the hottest colors in interior design. The reason behind its popularity lies in the fact that it’s a neutral color that comes in a lot of shades. It’s also easy to pair with other colors. A gray sofa can really enhance your living room.

Many of us might think that gray’s a cold, sad, or even winter color. However, a gray sofa is actually like a chameleon: it can adapt to any season and new trends because you can use it with practically any other color.

On a different note, gray is a color that creates elegance, balance, and sophistication. In our post today, we’ll show you our favorite gray sofas.

POET sofa

Its name isn’t just a coincidence; this sofa is just as precious as the most beautiful poetry and we fell in love with it at first sight. It was designed in 1941 by Finn Juhl. Though it has been around for some time, this sofa hasn’t become outdated at all. It’s actually quite the contrary.

It has modern lines that still have a classic feel. The sofa seats two people and was designed for small apartments. It has wooden legs that are normally slanted.

The sofa has padded upholstery for its back and is dark gray with white notes. The fabric looks very organic, similar to linen.

Gray sofas: Senso

The second sofa on our list today comes from designer Mario Ruiz for Joquer. It’s called “Senso”.

The Senso is a larger, four-seater sofa and creates a lovely ambiance for the living room. It’s dove gray, which is a soft shade that teeters towards blue. You can also install end-tables into the sofa’s structure.


On our list for top gray sofas, the Chester sofa is a must. It’s one of the hottest sofas these days.

Chester sofas are an absolute icon for classic sofas and look extremely elegant in gray. There’s no question about it, this sofa is eye-catching.

Chester sofas boast a padded upholstered back and a metallic rivet outline. They come in different shades of gray like anthracite, pearl, blueish and mink gray. You can find them at Kenay Home (link in Spanish).


We’ve also decided to include an armchair on our gray sofa list. We know that there are lots of ways to design living rooms and many of them include a matching armchair to go with the sofa.

The Strandmon is a winged armchair. It’s perfect for the living room along with a footrest. This chair is from IKEA and is dark gray. According to the website, it was launched in the 50s.

The chair has a padded upholstered back with five buttons. They certainly are a special detail, making it stand out from others.

This type of armchair is also perfect for children’s or infants’ rooms.


The last gray sofa on our list as a super-sofa. It’s a dark gray, 6-piece corner sofa. The sofa has a microfiber cover, which makes it quite soft and comfortable.

This option has very wide seating along with back cushions, which makes it extremely comfortable. You can find it at IKEA in a variety of colors.

To conclude on the gray sofa

Gray sofas are always a safe choice for living rooms. The versatility of gray offers an infinite number of ways to match with other colors and patterns.

Don’t forget that if you want to create a serene atmosphere that still has elegance and personality, gray is always a safe way to go.

To wrap things up, we’d like to give you some tips for choosing a sofa:

  • “Measure twice, buy once”: what we mean is that you should measure before you make a purchase. Measure your living room as well as the sofa. Remember the principle of proportion. If you use a big sofa in a small living room, the room will look smaller. Always look for balance.
  • Think about what you need: if you only have a family of two, you might not need an extra large sofa. However, if you have a lot of family members and often have company, a big sofa, or even a sofa-bed, might work better.
  • Lastly, look for the best quality/price ratio: these days, information is just a click away.
