But if you prefer to break away from everything and bet heavily on the vividness of colour in all its splendor, it is time to opt for prints.

There are endless varieties of print, flowers, stripes, circles, etc... If we look for prints with beautiful colour combinations we will achieve unique spaces full of personality and vitality.

If you are thinking of reupholstering a sofa or armchair in any colour, whether it is plain or a stamped pattern, you must take into account the type of style that it is. Not all sofa styles accept all types of upholstery. There are certain styles which are better suited towards the use of more colours or patterns and some which suit less. For example, the chill out chairs, which have independent modules that we can place to our liking, are perfect for playing with different varieties of tones. We can, for example, choose three parts in one tone and another in a different tone that highlights the design; or put three parts in plain and one with a colourful pattern. The combinations are endless and the only limit is in your imagination.
