How to style a pink sofa. My coral Zania sofa from dfs.

how to style a pink sofa How to style a pink sofa. I am so excited to show you my new living room. Many of you who follow me on instagram, will know that I usually have a green sofa in my front room. That green sofa has now gone to another room, to make way for this new set.

Introducing you to the Zania by dfs. how to style a pink sofa Shades of pink for sofas are already popular, and predicted to continue into next season.

The great thing about a modular sofa is that you can rearrange it to whatever configuration you like. My Zania sofa came as an L shape unit with a footstool (the footstool is not in the photo).

I have decided to split the L shape into two sections, and as a result, it has opened up the room space. Here’s another view. I love having the sofa by the windows, and watch the world go by. This rug was bought from a Sunday flea market in Abbot Kinney, LA. Can’t believe I carried that rug all the way back from the US.

Needless to say, I couldn’t fit it into my existing luggage, and therefore had to run into a nearby Target store to purchase another bag.

The rug is pink with orange and coral tones. It goes well with the sofa set don’t you think? My Fiddle Fig leaf plant is still going strong, and perfect in between the two sections of the Zania. Love how the lights stream in and light up the sofa.
Here are my usual collection of colourful cushions to brighten up the space. I’ve joined the sofa pieces here together to make the L shape configuration. Feels rather cosy don’t you think? These peach coloured roses look so pretty against the coral pink sofa. I’ve decided that I could have it two ways.

The open space seating configuration for Summer, and the L shape for Winter.

It’s wonderful how a modular sofa can give you that flexibility of arrangement in a space.
Which configuration do you prefer?
Some of you may remember my mint green sofa, and how its colour complimented the oversized art print above it.

I am pleased to say that this coral pink sofa has fitted in well too, drawing out the orange hues of the artwork. I realise I’ve been talking a lot about how beautiful this sofa is, but we all know that aesthetics is not the only selling point.

This sofa is super comfortable too, and I even fell asleep on it the other day. The L shape has turned my coffee table into a focal point, so styling it well was key to the overall feel of the space. So, what do you think of this new change? I really adore it.

There is certainly more seating space now for friends and family who come to visit.

Hope you have enjoyed the post. Wishing you a wonderful weekend and week ahead.

    Love this- just come across this on Sophie Robinson’s blog and love it! Can I ask about your cushions and also art work above your fireplace? Where are they from? Fabulous room. Love everything about it!

      Hi Kelly, lovely to meet you. the artwork is from Minted and the cushions are from Etsy UK. If you search Etsy and minted on my blog, you’ll get the links to the creatives behind the pieces. x

  2. What a fab colour. Really like this style of sofa. And the exposed seams on the back cushions just soften the look. What i’d like to know though, do the sections wiggle apart when you’re sitting on it? Or do they lock together somehow?

      Hi Karen, they do lock together. I haven’t actually locked mine yet, as I was moving them around to style the room. x

      It’s the perfect shade of pink isn’t it ? Not too sweet but just the right tone. x

  3. Love that this sofa can split up so you can work the space harder – and the pink blush colour too is so fresh and summery. Love your styling 🙂

  4. When we were looking for our new sofa from DFS this is the one I really wanted. Sadly though it’s far too big for our livingroom. I just love how cosy it looks and also how versatile and flexible it is in terms of configuration options. I love the colour you’ve chosen and how you’ve styled it!

      Thank you Stacey. The great thing about this sofa, is that you can split it into smaller units, but I guess it looks best together. x

  5. Now that is one pretty looking sofa. I am so tempted to add a shot of dusty pink, to my grey and white bedroom. It looks perfect in your living room.

  6. Wow, it looks wonderful Geraldine and I love how the sofa works both as a contained unit and split out. How lovely to have the space to be able to do that! I’m also loving that cactus cushion on the sofa, such a cute print 🙂

      Thank you Kate. I was so excited with this sofa. I’ve always wanted a modular sofa and in pink x

  7. The sofa is a triumph G. I like it separated and together. Both work. I have to say though, I have a corner sofa and no one ever sits in the corner. Ever. Quite surprising really. x

      Thank you Carole. That’s so interesting about the corner. 🙂

  8. I am considering getting this sofa so it was really helpful to see it styled and in a real living room. I found your blog searching for the Zania. Great blog! Love the custard cream cushion

      That’s wonderful Georgina. The sofa is super comfortable too.

    Hi Geraldine, this is such a beautiful room! I love it.

    I’m considering buying this sofa (a pink sofa is my dream!) but I can’t find a DFS shop which has this model on the showroom floor, so I have no idea if it is firm or soft or if I would find it comfortable. Did you find it in any shops on display? How does it feel to sit on?

    Thanks, Lucy x

      Hi Lucy, The Zania is super comfortable. It is firm with great support. The cushions at the back gives it a soft comfortable feel. Have you tried the Tottenham Court road branch?

    Hi Geraldine, what a fanastic set-up you’ve created. I’m in the process of styling the living room in our new house and this post really inspired me! I was wondering if the foot stool on this sofa can also be attached/locked? Thank you

    1. littlebigbell Post author

      Hi Nina. I think it can be locked. I haven’t locked mine though.
