What are the most popular sofa colours of 2022?

3rd August 2022

Colour is by far one of the most vital considerations that we all take into account when decorating our homes. Why? Well it’s because of the influence that colour has on everything from our mood to our quality of sleep.

Whether you’re looking to create a relaxing bedroom sanctuary, a crisp and bright kitchen, or a warm and welcoming living room, colour is an essential part of trying to strike the right tone.

Here at Cover My Furniture, we’ve been providing hand crafted sofa covers in a variety of different colours for over 60 years. We’ve had more than a few very popular offerings over the years here at Cover My Furniture, here are the highlights so far in 2022, in descending order:


Although natural shades are always a popular choice for those looking to incorporate a versatility to their sofa design, they fallen slightly short in the popular covers competition this year! Regardless though, a brilliant neutral sofa can serve as the anchor for your entire living room design. We’d recommend pairing the warm undertones of a natural coloured sofa with some richly patterned textiles, and colourful accessories. Or, you could always maintain a cooler colour scheme by pairing your sofa with greys or soft blues.


Classic blue has been making a significant comeback in the world of interior design over the last few years. Another versatile but bold choice, deep blue sofas give off a luxurious aura, whilst softer, powder blue sofas are a bit more cosy. Blue is a calming colour, perfect for deep thought and reflection, and since a lot of people have found themselves working from home more often since the Covid-19 pandemic, it’s a popular choice for those looking to create a great colour scheme for both concentration, and relaxation.


The rising popularity of green, both in the worlds of fashion and interiors, has been gathering steam since 2021, as trends have generally leaned more towards a natural look. The rise of green interiors has coincided with the fact that more and more people want to bring the natural feel of the outside into their homes. Perhaps this is symptomatic of the amount of time that people had to spend cooped up indoors during the pandemic, when we were all told to stay inside. For inspiration – whilst Chunky Weave – Pear sits comfortably in a country cottage setting, Everyday Velvet – Emerald creates a moodier and more loving feel.


To the surprise of absolutely nobody here at Cover My Furniture, grey has topped the list as the most sought-after sofa cover colour of 2022 so far. Grey is the most versatile of all the neutral colours, which is likely a big part of why it’s ended topping our list. It allows homeowners to change up the colours of their living room, without fear of the sofa contradicting the overall tone of the room. You can do this by introducing different accessories and wall colours to your living space, and this will come at a much lower cost than replacing large pieces of furniture.
