If you want a living space that will remain as on trend in 20 years’ time as it is today, then decorating in shades of grey is the answer. Here are 10 reasons why a grey sofa or sofa bed from Willow & Hall will ensure your entertaining space always stays in style.

Grey goes with everything

Just like with black and white, grey is a neutral colour. Whether you pair it with pastel accents or bright colour pops, grey will never look out of place.

It’s effortlessly stylish

Grey is synonymous with quality materials such as slate, so introducing it into a living space instantly sets a sophisticated tone.

It can be contemporary or traditional

Grey is one of the few colours that can lend itself as equally well in modern surroundings as it does in period and character homes.

Grey enlarges smaller spaces

Faced with furnishing a smaller sized room? Pale grey tones will keep the space feeling light and airy.

It doesn’t overpower

The great thing about grey is it doesn’t dominate. So, even if you opt for a 7 or 8 seater corner sofa upholstering in grey will ensure it doesn’t appear overbearing.
