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.
