More and more, the color gray is taking over the design world as the all-star neutral — and for good reason. It goes with every color, it's gender neutral and it’s much more interesting than white. Because it’s so flexible and versatile, it really is an ideal color to go in your living room.

To celebrate gray's amazing versality, I’ve rounded up 10 gorgeous gray sofas in a variety of styles. And best of all, they're all under 1000 bucks.

MCM-Inspired Color Pop

This gray midcentury modern-inspired sofa has some delightfully surprising pops of color. The couch’s tufted buttons could definitely bring a splash of boldness, especially in a space that's otherwise lacking in color.

Simple + Modern With a Deep Seat

If you want a budget-friendly sofa with a deep seat, this could be a great option. It also has wide, flat arms, which are nice if you want to (carefully!) balance a drink.

Lounge Sectional Loveseat

The great thing about this piece is that it can grow with you and your space. Because it is actually two pieces of a larger sectional system, you can add to it later on if you choose.

Chunky Bench Seat With a Modern Vibe

If you prefer a simple look with clean lines, this sofa could be a good fit. With a bench seat and straight back, there are no pillows or cushions to worry about. You can easily add some color, however, with your own throw pillows if you want to amp it up.

Square Tufts With MCM Legs

Here’s another MCM-inspired couch with square tufting. Typically a tufted couch uses more of a round pattern, so this sofa is a standout for embracing the symmetry of squares. This sofa also doesn't have any pillows or cushions, so it features more of a streamlined look.

The chesterfield sofa is a classic that never goes out of style. This is a great choice for a more traditional space; however, it also works with a variety of different styles, too. The velvet fabric would definitely be a good balance with the cool, gray tone of the color.

Another entry in the traditional category is this lovely, antique-inspired setee. The curved lines and overstuffed bench cushion have a very French chateau vibe. This would be a lovely choice for a more feminine-style space.

Chaise Sectional

It’s no easy task to find a sofa with chaise seating for under $1000, but this simple sofa manages to check the box. Stretch out and watch your favorite movie or TV show on this simple, gray Ikea sectional.

Modular Sleeper

This modular sofa provides a unique solution for anyone who needs their sofa to double as a sleeper when guests come over. The sofa opens up and folds completely flat, so it essentially turns into a solid mattress. When folded up as a sofa, you have two extra pieces to use as ottomans or a faux coffee table.

Cushy Pillowtop Sofa

This sofa is a great pick if you’re a cushy pillow lover. With overstuffed cushions in a variety of shapes and sizes, this gray sofa looks almost as comfy as an actual bed. The deep seat also allows for extra comfort, and the light gray color would pair perfectly with almost any color paint or decor.

White ceramic tiles with a contrasting black grout set the tone for this modern black and white kitchen. A peninsula helps create space in the small kitchen, and bright yellow stools add a super fun pop of color.

A glam triple pendant illuminates one corner of this transitional California bedroom, while a mirrored wall reflects a view of the Hollywood hills. The silky sheen of the button-tufted headboard adds chic sophistication to the space.

The stone fireplace surround juts out beyond the wall, making an architectural statement in the living room.

Meticulously crafted cabinets, thick slabs of marble, reflective glass and stainless-steel surfaces and create a workspace that functions well for serious cooks — or cocktails only. Smart storage like the floor-to-ceiling cabinets keeps it clutter-free.

This living room's subtle details pull the relaxed yet chic look of the space together. Keeping with the monochromatic color scheme, the curtains, artwork and floral arrangement add elegance to the room without overwhelming it.

Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines created a new laundry room and mudroom for homeowners, complete with plenty of storage cabinets, shelving and coat hooks. Brick floors were installed for a durable yet attractive look.

This Colonial home was built it the early 1940s, so the rooms -- including this living room -- are small. By flooding the space with light and selecting small scale furniture with big details, the space achieves a grand yet uncluttered feel in limited quarters.

Gray and white patterned wallpaper pairs with a patchwork cowhide rug to create a dynamic backdrop for this Upper West Side dining room. A steel drum chandelier with a nickel finish counterbalances the more casual leather klismos chairs.

Streamlined cabinetry and a sleek island ground this open kitchen with modern taste. In contrast, a framed beach print and shiplap ceiling are a nod to the cottage's coastal roots.

Tri-color custom draperies create a seamless flow with the gray walls of this transitional bedroom and frame a sweeping view of the Hollywood hills through French doors. A faux fur throw at the foot of the bed adds interest through texture, and a turquoise chair pops against the overall neutral palette.

Gorgeous traditional columns separate this living space and the family room in this gorgeous modern loft.

StudioHue chose to apply a neutral background color--gray--to this little girl's nursery so that the room could be easily changed as she grows. The designers added highlight colors, shapes and fabrics to add interest, such as the white scalloped mobile over an oval crib, geometric shapes painted on the wall and a soft fur area rug atop the carpet.
