I bought a similar looking beast second hand when it was less tired looking. It is very functional for what we need but it is so brown! I wanted to liven it up and change the cushions. They a quite large 64x64cm, machine washable and durable- have taken a beating from the DCs.
I was looking into replacing them with some brighter and more colourful/fashionable colours and or prints. Does anyone know of any websites that tailor for this ?

I have a similar sofa and couldn't find any so made my own in sky blue, cream and pale grey.

Wow thanks for replying Krazi. I have thought about this but I am so unskilled I would have to outsource. Can I ask is yours brown too! Did you keep the base/cushion part the same colour? Or was it enough to change the cushions only?

BTW your colours sound fabulous

I think teal looks good with brown, like this. So does duck egg blue / blue grey like this. Or did you want something really bright?

My sofa is brown and I kept the base then recovered the throw cushions (60x60). I am not very crafty but I googled how to make envelope cushion covers and they were pretty easy grin.
