Subtle, calming, and uplifting, light blue has quietly positive connotations that make the color a perfect choice for your new couch. It's also a shade that can work across a variety of fabrics. From velvet to linen, light blue upholstery really shines. As interior design trends come and go, light blue reins supreme as a timeless and classic shade. 

A light blue sofa also holds the ability to slot into any interior design style. This design is from Colombe Studio and works for a playful, primary pop style, but a light blue sofa would look just as at home in a minimalist scheme, or a cozy, more traditional setting. I've scoured the web and found 12 light blue sofas that will look perfect among all types of living room furniture.

If a sofa is to be an investment piece that withstands the test of time, you want to make sure that the color upholstery you pick will still work for your home in years to come. Light blue is a color that works for all interior design schemes, and can adapt to any other edits and changes you make around the room as trends come and go. 

'Light blue is an excellent color for a sofa as it pairs with both neutral and highly decorative, colorful schemes,' says Brooke Aitken (opens in new tab) of New South Wales-based Brooke Aitken Design. 'It straddles a calm and effusive feeling, so if you are not willing to go with a wild color but want something more than a cream color, then a dusty light blue is a great choice.'
