Neutral Sofa

What types of sofas are there to choose from?

This year, we're embracing the allure of bouclé and velvet upholstery, sculptural designs, and a harmonious palette of analogous colours. We've also thoughtfully assembled a wide array of sofas, each carefully chosen to cater to a spectrum of preferences and room sizes. From the understated elegance of compact two-seaters, ideal for snug corners or smaller apartments, to the grandeur of spacious designs perfect for large family homes or enthusiastic entertainers, our lineup is both diverse and consistently chic.

Recognizing the dynamic needs of modern living, Olivia's sofa range skillfully combines practicality with luxury. Our designs are crafted to enhance the sense of openness in your living area, allowing light to permeate gracefully. We select materials ranging from robust leathers to washable, stain-resistant fabrics, prioritising both durability and ease of upkeep, particularly for households with children or pets. Choosing a sofa from Olivia's means selecting a centrepiece that not only reflects your style but also meets your practical needs, all within an accessible range from affordable to premium options.

Traditional Lines

As the world of interior design continues to evolve, there's a noticeable shift from the allure of fluid, undulating furniture to a deeper appreciation for the elegance of traditional styles. This transformation is particularly evident in the realm of sofa design. The once-popular sinuous and whimsical shapes are giving way to the classic, enduring appeal of traditional lines. It’s a move from fleeting trends to timeless sophistication, as more and more homes embrace the understated grandeur and versatility of traditional sofas. This resurgence isn't just about revisiting the past; it’s about rediscovering the charm and durability of designs that have stood the test of time, promising to infuse living spaces with both comfort and lasting style.

This return to a traditional style doesn't necessarily signal the end of modern design elements but rather suggests a more balanced approach. While the appeal of unique, modern shapes has been undeniable, their longevity in the design world seems limited without the counterbalance of neutral, organic, and timeless features. At Olivia's, we're seeing a resurgence of interest in traditional sofa designs that offer a sense of permanence and grounding, seamlessly blending with a variety of decor themes to create a harmonious and enduring aesthetic.

Quiet Luxury

In the wake of the economic challenges that followed the extravagant '90s and early 2000s, a wave of simplified and pared-back design emerged. This movement was born from necessity, as people sought to navigate through financial restraint while maintaining a sense of style and comfort in their living spaces. Today, in the post-pandemic era, this trend has not only persisted but evolved. Renters and homeowners alike are making more deliberate choices in their shopping and decorating habits, prioritising intentionality over opulence.

Heading into 2024, the forecast for interior design trends points towards a continuation of this minimalist approach. The focus is increasingly on simple, neutral, and earthy designs with a touch of modernity. People are yearning for spaces that exude a sense of warmth and neutrality while embodying elegance and upscale living. Yet, there's a clear shift away from the flashy and ostentatious towards the subtly sophisticated. This is where the concept of 'quiet luxury' comes into play – it's about creating an ambience that is both luxurious and understated, where creative but subtle looks reign supreme, offering a tranquil and refined living experience.

Pick Pink

The resurgence of pink in interior design, notably emphasised by Dulux's selection of soft blush as the colour of the year for 2024, has gained significant traction. This surge is partly fueled by the widespread popularity of the Barbie movie, where Margot Robbie showcased how pink can truly transform our world into a happier place. However, Olivia's take on this trend steers towards a more subdued palette, embracing tones like whisper-soft rose, natural clay, and reddish mauve. These understated pink hues strike a harmonious balance when paired with dark woods and organic textures such as linen or stone, creating an elegant interplay that tempers the inherent sweetness of pink with a touch of natural sophistication in sofa designs.
