What color the wooden furniture should have, to match with a grey sofa?


Reader's question:

The sofa is grey. What color the wooden furniture should have (apart from wenge) in order to match with the sofa.

Our answer:

Grey is a neutral color and matches with all type of woods and colors, either painted of natural. 

Consequently, the color of the sofa is not determinant for the color of the furniture. However, there are some things that you should consider before opting for a certain color or type of furniture. 

  • The brightness of the space. For, example, if the space is dark with little natural light, then you should avoid selecting dark wooden furniture. If the space is cold you should consider selecting natural wooden furniture. 
  • The style of your space. If the decoration style is classical, then the furniture could be deep colord, like mahogany, cherry and walnut or antique woods. If the space is more modern then the wooden surface of the furniture could be painted (lacquered) in many colors, treated with decorative varnishes, ech.
