As you may have known, there are many kinds of patterns in sofa covers. The question is, is cover really important? What is the function of sofa cover after all? First, it isn’t really necessary. You can have it, or you cannot have it. It depends on your sense of style. The main function is this is actually to cover your sofa, just in case any unwanted accident happens, like spilling wine or such. If you prefer to have your sofa as well as your cushions covered, the good news is, you can choose many patterns, motifs, colors, and prints for it. The choices are endless. So how could you choose the right one?
If you have classic style, it’s better to have soft and neutral color as your sofa seat cushion covers. If you already have neutral and soft sofa color, it’s recommended to have solid and neutral colored for your cushion covers. Those two colors, for sofa and cushions cover, should be opposed and contrasted, but still in calm tones. However, in classic style, make sure it’s solid color. In modern style, on the contrary, you need to choose solid color sofa, but make sure the cushion covers come from different patterns, colors, and prints. You don’t need to have similar patterns and prints. For instance, if you have four cushions, let them all have different motifs.
Same goes for leather sofa cushion covers. Leather sofa will bring out the elegance and luxury in your room. Naturally, it comes in neutral color. So, to make your room even more eye catching, pick two sets of cushion instead of one, and place two of them in both sides of sofa. Each side should have a set in different pair. Don’t mind the patterns and motifs. You can also choose shading colors with some gradations.

Or, you can cut out your old dresses and take several inches of its fabrics, and sew them into one cushion covers. Be wild and creative to create this. Or, you can embroider or cross stitch a certain pattern over a solid fabric. It can be personalized and make it more unique. There are some guides and instructions on the internet for the tutorial.
