Affordable Patterned Sofa

Ikea's Karlstad sofa in Grönvik Multicolour hits just the right note of subtlety.

This sofa's palette is fresh and feminine, but the pattern won't stand out too much in a living room or open-concept condo. Plus, the price is right. A sofa is usually an investment piece, so choosing a bold pattern can be daunting. But the Karlstad is priced low enough to have a little fun — plus, you can buy separate slipcovers in a solid colour if you tire of the print.

Karlstad sofa in Grönvik Multicolour. 31 1/2" h. x 80 3/4" w. x 37" d. $699. At Ikea.
