Choosing a 1950s sofa

Are you after an L-shaped sofa that sits eight or a snug little love seat? Do you want velvet, leather or wool? A teak frame or chrome legs? The beauty of 1950s sofas is that they combine functionality and comfort with simple, enduring style. The sleek lines that make mid-century furniture so appealing abound in the shape of 1950s settees, whether they’re low, long daybeds or banana-style curves. Look for Italian, Scandinavian and British models that really epitomise the era’s aesthetic and revel in the exciting array of colours available. Whether you prefer muted pastel tones or bright, primary shades, the 50s was a decade that explored different colours and textures, becoming more ambitious and bold as the decade went on – a theme that certainly carried over into the Swinging 60s beyond.

How to style a 1950s sofa

Whether you have a minimalist, whitewashed sitting room or an eclectic, retro lounge, a 1950s sofa makes a great addition to your living space. In a very simple setting, choose a stunning bright orange, blue or yellow number and make it work as a striking accent piece that draws the eye. In a cosy, Nordic-inspired room, opt for a teak framed Danish sofa with jewel-toned upholstery and decorate it with a deerskin rug to add warmth and interest.

Add texture to your velvet 1950s sofa with satin scatter cushions and a well-chosen throw in a contrasting colour. Pick up a matching armchair, or reupholster one in a complementary colour with a geometric pattern that links back to the sofa’s 50s roots. A small 1950s sofa makes the perfect addition to a generously sized bedroom, too – position it in a bay window and choose curtains that accentuate its colour and texture. However you choose to style your 1950s sofa, you can rest assured that the superior comfort that comes from the decade’s excellent craftsmanship is ever present.
