What Does Your Sofa Say About You?

With the range of patterns and colours available at Tailor Made Sofas, choosing the right sofa fabric for your home could become a daunting task. Do you choose bold bright colours, neutral subdued shades or the classic monochrome? And then there’s the patterns! With our inspirational selection of fabrics from world-leading designers such as Harlequin, Malabar and Romo, your choices really are endless. There’s stripes, floral, abstract, exotic designs and much more. We can put almost anything you want on your sofa, from animals to aeroplanes!

Your sofa is an integral part of your living space and you’ve probably seen your fair share of ups and downs together; it’s a place of comfort that you gravitate towards whether you’re entertaining friends or just wanting to curl up and get away from it all. So what does your choice of sofa say about your personality? Allow Tailor Made Sofas to explain.


Striped sofas are great for creating a focal point for your living room and adding a nautical feel. If you’ve chosen a striped sofa, it reveals a secretly daring side to your personality as this style of sofa is still quite edgy and contemporary. Romo produce some stunning striped fabrics – check out their Charlbury and Solea collections for inspiration.


On the other side of the scale, floral sofas are a much more classic choice. Choosing a floral sofa suggests a feminine personality and a love for all things pretty. It could also indicate a conformist and reserved side, although plenty of the floral patterns we offer could certainly not be described as reserved!


This is a fairly straightforward choice really – it shows your exotic side! You’re probably quite an adventurous character and enjoy visiting new places, meeting new people, trying different foods and experiences. Chances are that your living room will be filled with trinkets picked up on your travels. If this sounds like you, check out our fabrics available from Malabar, with designs inspired from South West India and around the world.


Bright and bold colours indicate a bright and bold personality. Red and oranges indicate a confident, warm and fun person whereas yellow is the colour most associated with happiness, optimism and energy. Pink is associated a whimsical and playful spirit.


Brown can be seen as quite a practical choice of sofa colour, as it’s know to blend in well. But it could also be selected for other reasons, perhaps you’re a nature lover? Brown is associated with feeling close to nature, so maybe choosing a brown sofa is your way of trying to bring the outdoors in.

Black & White

This classic combination indicates class, style and elegance. You’re probably quite a classic, strong person who knows what they want and aren’t afraid to go out and get it.
