I admire bold print sofas in other people's interiors, I just don't think it's for me. I'm sure I'd get bored with it and thus be stuck with it. But, they're so pretty! I've always admired Kristin Buckingham's sofa!

I love that first bench. The colors are gorgeous.

quintessence said...

I might!! With something very graphic perhaps!!

Kerri said...

It's funny you should ask that question - how does a blue ikat sofa sound? But I confess, it's only in my latest painting. If you're interested you can see it here:

Love your blog and love this post! K x

The first kilim inspired..yes. Love them and think they work with a variety of styles and feelings in a room. The others i would admire from afar, too bold for my taste.

I could not, would not, in my house.
I think they're great, and fun. But, that's a big commitment and I'm fickle so I know I would get tired of it really fast.

Love the title of this post! and the answer is, no way could I. I love the look, but I am just to practical. I also tire of things very easily, so I would be spending a fortune every time I had the thing reupholstered! M.

Hooper Patterson said...

Yes ma'am I could do it!!!

Jenny Castle Design said...

I would do it - but it would take encouraging! I think it's easy to go neutral on furniture with mixed textures and make the pillows pop...but I love the idea of a totally bold piece!!

Lissa @ After Adornment said...

I definitely would! I am looking into having another slipcover made in a pattern. This way I can change it out as I want to. My problem is trying to narrow down the fabric choices!

I like all of those except the stripes, too much for this gal. I have a very neutral home but I do like a pop of color and print here and there so I might be more apt to do it with a chair or ottoman.

Karen@StrictlySimpleStyle said...

Not on a sofa, on a chair definitely, sofas are neutrals only in our house.

Splendid Sass said...

I love these sofas, but i like a solid sofa for me. The prints would be a little too busy to like at all of the time. Just my preference.
Have a great day, Kim.

I love the idea, but I worry that I'm too fickle with prints to make such a commitment...for now, I'll just admire from afar! Happy weekend, Kim!

Camille @ The Vintique Object said...

I can envision exactly two scenarious that would allow me to answer yes:

1) If an upholstery shop was my business.

2) If I won the lottery.

SHERRY HART said...

Yikes...not sure but I love when other people do it:)

Mona Thompson said...

Probably not!

lemondropdreams said...

I would do it, but it would have to be the center of attention in the room.

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

I like prints like this when I see them in other peoples homes but they are a little too bold for my own taste.

Carla@DesignintheWoods said...

I might, if everything else in the room was patternless. I love the bold black and white chevron on that settee.

Danika Herrick said...

Heck yeah! Thats why white or solid slipcovers were invented (well, in my opinion). I like to upholster in the crazy prints and make slipcovers in the nuetrals. That way your furniture can have alter egos when the mood strikes.

PS-I'm really loving the striped couch for some reason.

Danielle said...

If I could afford it....YES for sure!

Mike said...

I really like the sofa with all the different colors. It's like a rainbow sofa. Very cool.
