Burgundy Sofa

Updated on March 16, 2011

The Burgundy Leather Sofa

A burgundy leather sofa is great at keeping stains at bay and being nice and cool during the summer. A burgundy leather sofa, even just a cloth burgundy sofa, can be very classic and elegant choice. Did I mention that a good quality leather sofa is very durable and that it ages very gracefully too? If you have cats or dogs, you may not want to buy a leather sofa because their claws may go through the leather sofa. Of course, there are all types of quick leather sofa fixes out there if you're feeling bold enough to risk it.

For years, a burgundy sofa has been a staple in classic luxurious homes. Have you ever visited the old mansions in Newport, RI? If you have, then you know that a burgundy leather sofa can be seen in almost every mansion. Whether it's the study, the library, an office, or a living room, a burgundy leather sofa can really look beautiful in any home.

For a great selection of burgundy sofas, try looking online. Sometimes you can find some a really exquisitely designed burgundy leather sofa online for a lot less than you will ever pay in furniture stores. I recommend Amazon or eBay because I think their reputations uphold for large purchases such as sofas and electronics. See what's available on and eBay right now.

Cloth Burgundy Sofa

A cloth burgundy sofa is also something to consider when shopping for burgundy sofas. There is a wonderful selection of burgundy sofas online. A cloth burgundy sofa can be made form a wide variety of materials, with the most popular being microfiber or chenille. Like the burgundy leather sofa, you can purchase a cloth burgundy sofa in a set, loveseat, or sectional.

Cloth burgundy sofas are great for people with animals or children, if you are worried about scratching and holes. The only problem you will face is it getting dirty and over time, it will wear like any normal sofa. Microfiber is very resilient to wear and to stains, so a microfiber burgundy sofa might be something to consider if you're in the market for a burgundy sofa.

Whatever fabric or material you decide to decorate with in your home, a burgundy sofa can be a classic and wonderful addition to your home. Regardless of the style of your home, a burgundy sofa is sure to make it even more beautiful and elegant. Plus, burgundy will not dirty as easily as a light beige or ivory, which is the reason why it is such a sought after color in home furniture.

Burgundy Sofa Set, Burgundy Sofa, or Burgundy Loveseat

A burgundy sofa set is a great idea over purchasing separates if you want a good deal. When you buy all three pieces, including the sofa, loveseat, and chair, you will usually pay a fair amount less than you would pay for all three separate.

If you don't have the room for a burgundy sofa set, it is best to just purchase the burgundy sofa and two chairs, or a burgundy sofa and the loveseat. It's really up to you and how your room is laid out. If you really don't have a lot of room, you could always just buy a burgundy loveseat with a chair or two.

Choosing a Burgundy Loveseat

As mentioned, a burgundy loveseat is a great idea if you don't have a lot of room in your home or if you just want a change of living room furniture arranging. A lot of people don't like to sit between two others in the middle cushion, so the middle seat of a sofa often is left empty anyway. This is why choosing a burgundy loveseat can be a great idea.

Whether you have the room or not, choosing a burgundy loveseat is a smart option. The only downside is that you cannot buy a burgundy sofa set if you purchase the loveseat as your main seating. It's fine though if you planned on purchasing separates.

To Buy or Not To Buy a Burgundy Sectional Sofa

A burgundy sectional sofa can be a great thing if you have the right room for it and always have plenty of people at home. If you don't have a lot of guests, or a lot of room, then you should consider a burgundy sofa set over a burgundy sectional sofa. Sectional sofas are wonderful as a convenience option, because they come in wide variety of seating options.

If you don't like the typical sectional sofas, then you should see what types of burgundy sectional sofas area available these days. They are not what they once were. The burgundy sectional sofa is not what it used to be. There are now burgundy sectional sofa designs from very classic historical feeling to extremely sleek and modern. You should take a look before completely ruling them out. It's an easy one-stop shopping experience when you decide to go with a burgundy sectional sofa

Now That You've Chosen a Burgundy Sofa, How Do You Decorate with It?

When you first are purchasing your new burgundy sofa, you need to ask yourself whether or not you will be designing the room around the new sofa, or if the new burgundy sofa is going to fit in with your current decor. Simply take a look at your current decor and the colors in your room to decide if burgundy furniture will be appropriate. Burgundy is a pretty neutral color and can often fit in with most colors.It's also because burgundy comes in many shades from warm to cool.

Some particular shades of various colors will look great with burgundy, while others will look horrible. An easy way to look at it is to think of the colors that mix to make burgundy - red and violet. Violet and red will both compliment burgundy well, but be sure to use deeper shades of each or lighter, light a scarlet red - not pure red. A burgundy sofa will also look great with a deep hunter green or navy blue. If you're afraid of too much richness or too many dark colors in the room, opt for a taupe, beige, or cream on the wall.

Choosing between a burgundy leather sofa and a cloth burgundy sofa can sometimes be a challenge. You also will need to think about what type of style of couch you will be interested in. There are very modern types of burgundy sofas and very traditional burgundy sofas and burgundy sofa sets to choose from.
