About $1,299 as shown. www.broyhillfurniture.com

Rich in both color and texture, Sam Moore’s Cheekie exposed wood accent chair features a sumptuous berry-hued velvet. Not quite as electric as Pantone’s “Ultra Violet” color of the year for 2018, this shade can nevertheless offer a fresh and fashion-forward accent in a room dominated by either warm- or cool-tone neutrals. About $1,299. http://www.sammoore.com


Revitalizing Neutrals

From the deepest jewel tones to the softest pastels, there is something for every taste from today’s top upholstery manufacturers. Elegant silhouettes from Highland House include Andre, a stately wing chair shown in a soft shade of blush that quickly became known as “millennial pink” in 2017. The modern faux bois-patterned velvet updates the classic shape for 2018. As shown, the chair sells for about $3,930. https://www.highlandhousefurniture.com/

U.S. consumers shopping in all price points continue to gravitate toward neutrals when it comes to the larger upholstered pieces that anchor a room. The choice is anything but boring when showcased against walls in an on-trend charcoal hue and then layered with texture from sharply contrasting accent pillows, like the inky black square and gray and wine striated pillows shown here on CR Laine’s Darby Settee. As shown, in a ticking stripe fabric called Faraway Granite, it sells for about $3,750. For 2018, contrast and texture are key to making neutrals au courant. http://www.crlaine.com.



Craftmaster is known for its moderately-priced, custom-order upholstery, and the broad range of fabric choices makes it easy to blend bold color, texture and pattern for fashion-forward living spaces. This casual sofa is about $899 in the neutral “Popstich” fabric shown. It allows shoppers the freedom to choose fun accent pillows and even an accent chair in an on-trend print. The chair in this setting features “Celtic,” an oversized floral pattern on a sharply contrasting black background. The chair is about $699. http://www.craftmaster.com




Bountiful Blues

No one is singing the blues over the rich selection of blue-based solids and prints dominating today’s most popular upholstered furniture. Denim-inspired shades are prevalent throughout the market, making Thomasville’s Marshall modular sofa a sure winner in this casual, weekend-jeans shade of blue. As one of Thomasville’s new “performance” fabrics, this base cloth repels stains and is both durable and cleanable. https://www.thomasville.com/
