One thing holds true in culture, conversation, music and cuisine, and certainly in design too: contrast keeps things interesting. Although it’s always a safe bet to invest in a single-hued couch and infuse contrasting colors into pillows and wall coverings, today’s roundup of bold-patterned fabric sofas throws caution to the wind and does all the work on its own. From simple, classic tone-on-tone damask to wildly varied black-and-pastel abstract shapes, these sofas pull together visual tension in a way that requires more than a single glance. Although a few of the patterns are more subdued than the others, there’s no shrinking violet among them.
