Top tips for matching cushions to a grey sofa

What cushions go with grey sofa?

Grey sofas make a great neutral base for any colour palette, and match very well with certain colour tones, however there's a few rules to creating the perfect set of matching cushions.


Lets talk colours! Matching cushion colours together

Colours like navy, teal, yellow, and pink all look great together and will harmonise really well with most grey sofas, and are a great choice for cushions on a grey sofa. 

Navy and teal create a calming and sophisticated look, while yellow and pink can add a touch of brightness and vibrancy, and a pop of colour to the overall decor.

Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, you can mix and match different cushion colours to create a unique and eye-catching combination. 

Our Silver & Pink Luxe Cushion setis great for adding a pop of pink colour to a room without adding too many other elements, and is great if you have warm hues.




 Rule of three cushion colours

To keep the look from becoming too busy, stick to a colour palette of no more than three hues and choose complementary shades for a polished and pulled-together look. 

Our Silver, Black and Navy Luxe cushion set are perfect for a more subtle paired down look while still adding a luxurious and elegant style to your space.





Choosing the right cushion colour

When it comes to choosing the right cushions for a grey sofa, it is important to choose a colour that will complement the sofa and the overall look of the room. Does your room have blue accents? Perhaps a green lamp or painting? Then try anchoring your cushion colour pallette to existing colours which will harmonise the room and complement the existing decor.


Be bold

If the room is mainly neutral, then a pop of colour can be used to create a contrast and some vibrancy to the room.

For a bolder look, shades of blue, green, and yellow can be used to create a vibrant and colourful aesthetic. 

Our Gold and Emerald Luxe set is perfect for adding a pop of colour to a grey sofa and accentuate other colours in the room.

Less is more

Alternatively, if the room has other colours in it, then a muted colour palette should be used to complement the existing colour scheme. Neutral colours like beige, white, or light grey work well with a grey sofa, creating a calming and tranquil atmosphere. 

Try to avoid too many grey cushions as that will result in a look that can be a little dull and flat. 

Additionally, patterned cushions can be used to add visual interest to the sofa. For a contemporary look, geometric and abstract designs work well. 

Our houndstooth cushion setis a great way to add a sophisticated and timeless look to any space.




Choosing the right cushions for a grey sofa doesn't have to be a daunting task. With a little bit of thought and consideration, selecting the perfect cushions can be fun and really complement the sofa and the overall look of the room.
