Black couches make a bold visual statement while remaining pleasantly versatile. They capture attention, yet they also coordinate easily with any secondary color palette that you might want to pair them with. But this deep and dark upholstery color is wonderfully practical too. In family homes, a black sofa can easily stand up to spills without worry. In homes with pets, black couches can help camouflage stray fur in between cleanings – unless your pet has white fur, that is. Are you ready to go dark with your next sofa investment? We’ve collected our favorites from around the web to inspire you.
