Sofas may just be the easiest way to make a statement in the living room. From the low profiles of mid-century styles to the rounded curves of modern designs, there are so many sofa trends to adopt that will totally transform the living room.
Serving us a fresh dose of sofa inspiration is Swedish model and former Victoria's Secret Angel Elsa Hosk, who took to Instagram this week to share a series of mirror selfies, depicting a stylish array of seating options in the background.
The sofas and chairs are undeniably chic, with a grown-up and timeless color palette of neutrals and a mix of rich textures, from edgy leather to soft bouclé. We couldn't help but notice that these stylish furniture pieces tap into this year's top sofa and living room trends, encompassing a mix of styles.

The first of these trends is bouclé. Hosk stands in front of a set of chairs that are adorned in an ivory shade of soft bouclé fabric, which look cozy and sophisticated in equal measure. While the tufted material was originally questioned by some as a quick-passing trend, experts agree it's a trend that will stick around thanks to its sumptuous look and feel.
Homes & Gardens editor Jennifer Ebert says: 'To capture ultimate levels of coziness, bouclé is an obvious choice. Not only does it add rich texture and comfort to the living room, it can be styled in a number of decor styles which makes it a trend for the long run.'
Jen is the Deputy Editor (Digital) of Homes & Gardens online. Before starting this position, she had completed various interior design courses at KLC Design School, as well as working across Ideal Home, LivingEtc, 25 Beautiful Homes and Country Homes & Interiors as an interiors writer.
The second trend we noticed is the furniture's sculptural form and soft curves. The tan leather-looking sofa features a minimalist form, with a curved silhouette that makes a subtle statement in the room. Interior designer Anu Kurup agrees, noting that it doesn't take over the space, saying: 'The low profile of the sofa ensures that it doesn't overwhelm the room and maintains an open and airy atmosphere.'
Kurup also notes the two sofas in the room reference a vintage design style, saying that 'they capture the essence of mid-century modern design and add a touch of sophistication to the room,' while the leather-looking upholstery adds a further layer of interest to the space, explaining that it 'not only adds a touch of luxury but also provides a warm and inviting feel to the space.'
