As blogger Victoria Smith of SF Girl By Bay describes on her Pinterest board “sofa noir”, “black sofas are the new black”. Not only have they been right on trend for years, but they’re also dark and enveloping, which feels especially appropriate in the winter. Plus, unlike their lighter counterparts, they weather well, taking spills, wear, and tear in stride.
The board focuses mainly on the sleek, classic silhouettes like the chesterfield or Italian models. Each image is testament to how a good-looking, well-styled black sofa can lend a unique, European air to any room it sits within. See for yourself—the 42 photos and counting may just be enough to lure you over to the dark side, (as far as cute couches are concerned).
