Faux leather sofa is a large and dramatic piece of furniture, whether you choose one in a darker, more masculine color or in a light, buttery shade. The leather sofa tends to overwhelm the space, the first thing you look at in the room. The trick is to do leather work in the interior of the room as a whole.
Choose furniture colors that complement the faux leather sofa while helping to balance the room. If your sofa is dark skins, picking other furniture in a lighter shade. For example, with a black or dark brown sofa, using furniture in cream, light blue or green. For lighter leather sofas, pick the other bits in the same color but slightly darker. For example, choose shades of yellow and orange to cream or light yellow leather sofa.
Adding a contrasting color to the space takes the focus from the leather sofa and opens up the room. Apartment Therapy website suggests mixing different shades of light blue and gray in a room with bright carpets and dark brown leather sofa. With a lighter leather sofa, mix of bright colors such as orange or red.

Putting two leather pieces side by side, holding a piece from overwhelming the other. Choose different colors to give the room more dimensions.
