What Houzz contributors are saying:
Take patterns out of the pictureA sofa like this deserves star billing. Patterned wallpaper behind it would be a design crime, as would upholstering it in a fabric with a complex pattern. In the long run, you may be glad you opted for a plain fabric for major furniture pieces. Save patterns for pillows or throws. Speaking of pillows, don’t overdo them — they often get tossed on the floor.
