Peacock Blue

Let your sofa be the peacock of your living room stealing all the attention with its gorgeous, deep blue-green color. You can customize the size and material, but we're partial to this out-of-the-ordinary pick. BUY IT: Room and Board, $2000 and up

Tapestry Combo

The gorgeous tapestry print on this small-scale sofa is tempered by the solid seat cushion making it less overwhelming than an all-over pattern. If you want to dip your toes into a print, this is a great way to go. BUY IT: Anthropologie, $2400

A Classic in Indian Pink

George Smith sofas may very well be the pinnacle of luxury seating. Fans include everyone from rock stars to movie makers and the reason is clear: they are durable, supremely comfortable and come in colors and patterns as lovely and bold as this Indian Pink. BUY IT: George Smith, inquire for pricing

Icy Velvet

A sure way to distinguish your sitting room from your neighbor's is to opt for a nontraditional form like this sculptural sofa. Its lovely round arms and delicate legs will turn the focus of your living room to your show-stopping sofa. BUY IT: Jonathan Adler, $3950

Grass-Green Sectional

If you're unafraid of making the biggest and boldest of design choices, go for green in a big sectional. This velvety soft, grass-green stunner is the perfect centerpiece of an all-white room. Accent it with simple wood tables, let in the greenery from your windows and call it a day. BUY IT: Article, $2200

'80s-Inspired Classic

No doubt some '80s trends are best left in that glitzy decade. But this sofa, which claims it is "retro-inspired," has the best of that decade written all over it. The slightly shiny velvet in this luxurious-feeling lavender will look chic and up-to-date in a modern living room. BUY IT: Urban Outfitters, $900

Petite Tufted Blue

If you've got a small space and can't drop a ton of money on your seating, this petite option might be the way to go. You can get the look of real velvet and brass at a much lower price point while still making a daring design choice. BUY IT: Target, $580

Fashion Forward

The gorgeous lines on this beauty blend traditional details, like the pleated rolled arms, with the fashion-forward sloping sides of the back. While the color is still a bit subdued, its distinctive shape will ensure you steer clear of boring seating. BUY IT: Dwell Studio, $1300

Sea Blue English Arm

A sea-blue color like the one on this affordable sofa can be jazzed up or muted depending on how you accessorize it. Add exciting prints with accent pillows and throws and your traditional sofa becomes a real show piece. If you tire of the bright look, tone it down with neutrals. BUY IT: Ikea, $700

Suzani Print

If you're not quite ready to use a striking print on a full-sized sofa, dip your toes into vibrant patterns with a settee. The Suzani print is a classic but its pink, red, turquoise and yellow will liven up any room and complement more neutral pieces. BUY IT: Wayfair, $590

Sangria Stunner

The lush color on this tuxedo style sofa elevates it from a standard classic to a truly personalized piece. It's called "Sangria" by the retailer and we think that your house guests will happily raise a glass of fruity red to your brave choice in couches. BUY IT: Anthropologie, $2200 and up

Black Velvet

You may not think of black as a bold color choice, however, when it wraps your sofa in velvet fabric, it definitely is. This couch is available in a wide range of colors, but we think Elvis would approve of this one. BUY IT: All Modern, $3060

Tailored Eucalyptus

Make a non-traditional color choice palatable by choosing a very traditional, tight-backed and tufted style. In addition to this eucalyptus color, it's available in a variety of fabrics, many of which are mid-century inspired like light pink, cayenne red and moss green. BUY IT: West Elm, $1100

Clean-Lined Mauve

Pinks, light purples and their daring sister mauve are making a huge splash in furniture showrooms. If you pick a trendy color like this one — which we 100 percent endorse — using it on a simple two-seater with unembellished details is how you keep it from feeling like a flash-in-the-pan and more like a timeless piece. BUY IT: ABC Home, $1775 and up
