Sofa Stories: Crafting the Perfect Look for Your Couch

When someone enters your living room, their eyes first land on your couch, quite naturally as it is the biggest piece of furniture in your room. So making sure it’s nicely done and looks attractive is super important if you are looking to impress your guests and score all the points.    

When it comes to your couch, style and comfort go hand in hand and Kuttans make sure of that! Without proper comfort, a well-made couch is just a pretty piece of furniture and not functional, which you wouldn't want for sure. 

So if you're baffled about how to pick decors and pieces for your couch, this article will cover how to make a couch more comfortable and luxurious at the same time. 

Must-Have Pieces to Style Your Couch 

Lumbar Cushion Covers


At Kuttans, we bring you lumbar cushion covers that have adaptable accents that can easily improve the look of your couch. You can experiment with textures, patterns, and colours while also adding a touch of refinement and comfort to your seating arrangement with these smaller-sized cushion coverings. 

Cherry-on-top, lumbar pillows are ideal for layering because of their smaller size. For a coordinated and fashionable design, pair them with large square cushions in complementary hues and materials. 

Lumbar cushion covers are a flexible tool that may help you create the desired aesthetic for your sofa and living area, whether you decide to go flamboyant or keep it understated.

Style Tip: One great style tip to make a visually appealing couch is to use lumbar cushion coverings in different subtle colours and bold patterns. For instance, add lumbar pillows with vivid geometric motifs or luxurious textures like velvet or silk to a couch with neutral tones. Your living area will gain individuality and vibrancy from this contrast.  

Tasselled Cushion Covers


Tasselled cushion coverings are a great way to give your couch some style and boho appeal. These ornamental covers offer a special chance to give your living room uniqueness and liveliness.

With Kuttan’s collection, you can create an eclectic and colourful sofa display by mixing and matching tasselled cushion covers with solid-coloured or patterned cushions. For a balanced aesthetic, use a tasselled cushion cover with neutral hues and colourful, contrasting pillows. The tassels will stand out due to this contrast and be highlighted.

Style Tip: Consider matching the colour of the tassels to those of your room's curtains, rugs, or artwork to create a unified aesthetic. This modest colour harmony will unify the entire space. Tasselled cushion covers are used for more than just texture; they also serve as fashion statements. Take inspiration from their lively, free-spirited atmosphere to design a couch that is both warm and eye-catching.

Macramé Cushion Cover  


Macramé cushion coverings can give your couch a lovely boho-chic touch and produce a warm, textured environment in your living area.

For your living area, choose neutral hues like cream, beige, or off-white from Kuttan’s wide collection to keep the atmosphere peaceful and unhurried. The delicate macramé designs stand out against this diverse background of tones.  

Pair macramé pillow coverings with solid-coloured pillows in earthy tones like rust, olive green, or soft blues to make them stand out. The delicate designs are highlighted by the contrast, which also gives your couch's design more depth.

Style Tip: To add visual interest, think about integrating pillow coverings made of macramé in various sizes. For instance, place larger ones in the centre of your couch and smaller ones on either end as statement pieces. This design strikes a balance and displays the exquisite craftsmanship of macramé. 

Minimalist Cushion Covers 


In order to give your couch a sleek and modern appearance, minimalist cotton cushion covers can be an elegant and functional addition. 

At Kuttan’s, you can choose pillows with crisp lines and straightforward patterns to make the most of minimalist cotton covers. Avoid clutter and choose a "less is more" philosophy. This entails picking just a few strategically placed pillows and prioritising quality over quantity.

Minimalist cotton cushion covers are a flexible option for adorning your couch because they are highly adaptable and go well with many different types of decor. They guarantee that your couch will seem effortlessly stylish and welcoming because of their timeless elegance.

Style Tip: To create a minimalist look, choose cotton pillow coverings in muted, neutral hues like white, grey, or beige. These understated colours produce a soothing ambience and act as a blank slate for the rest of your design.

Wooden Side Stool 


When paired with your couch, wooden stools are a utilitarian and fashionable addition to your living room decor that also adds to its visual value.  

Wooden stools by Kuttans can be used as multifunctional seating options next to your couch. Place them thoughtfully to provide extra sitting for visitors or as footrests to improve comfort while relaxing. Choose stools with a style that goes with your couch and the furniture in the space. 

Choose wooden stools that complement or match the wood finish of your coffee table or other furniture in the room for a unified appearance. By doing so, the components will be connected and have a pleasing visual flow.

Wooden stools can be included in your living room setting to give warmth and natural beauty to your decor in addition to offering useful seating options. They can enhance the overall design of your couch and living area while serving both functional and ornamental purposes.

Style Tip: To make the wooden stools more comfortable and to add a splash of colour or texture, think about adding cushions or seat pads. In addition to making them cosier, doing so enables you to add your own particular flair to the area. 

Embroidered & Upholstered Stool


Stools with embroidered upholstery are a great way to accessorise your couch, add style, and give your living room a unique touch. 

At Kuttan’s, stools with embroidery upholstery are one-of-a-kind and make eye-catching accent pieces for your living area and are handcrafted with love with the choicest natural fabrics.

Select stools with brilliant colours and exquisite embroidered designs to go with your couch and overall decor style. These embroidered stools spark conversation and give the space personality.

Choose upholstery hues and embroidery designs that complement your couch or other focal points in the room, like curtains or accent pillows, for a unified appearance. This will produce a harmonised and aesthetically pleasant environment.

Stools with embroidery-covered upholstery are a great option for people who want to add character and individuality to their area because they may give your living room a feeling of personality and craftsmanship. These adaptable items can genuinely improve the look of your couch and the area as a whole.

Style Tip: Think of setting up an embroidered stool next to your couch to serve as a side table or even as extra seating when necessary. Add a small tray on top for décor or refreshments to increase comfort and flair.  

Tips to Increase the Life of Your Couch

  • By routinely flipping and rotating your seat and back cushions, you can spread wear and tear more evenly. This keeps one side from fading or becoming overly squeezed.
  • If your couch has headrests or armrests, you might choose to use covers as protection. These coverings can protect your couch's high-contact areas from sweat, oils, and grime, extending its lifespan.
  • Vacuum your couch frequently to get rid of dust and other particles that can assemble over time. When washing your specific upholstery material, use caution and always adhere to the manufacturer's cleaning instructions.
  • Long-term exposure to direct sunlight can damage and fade the upholstery on your couch. Use UV-resistant window film, blinds, or drapes to shield your couch from direct sunlight.
  • Use furniture sliders if you frequently need to relocate your couch. These tiny, low-cost devices can reduce friction and lower the possibility of scuffs or scratches on your floors and couch legs.
  • If the removable cushion covers for your couch are not in use, store them in a cool, dry location to avoid fading and damage. If you have seasonal covers, this can be really helpful.
  • Think about paying for specialised upholstery cleaning services. Professionals can thoroughly clean and revitalise your couch while removing allergens and ingested filth.

Don't wait to give your couches the much-needed makeover and check decor items at Kuttans to shop aesthetic pieces on a budget.
