Points to consider

  • We added “grey” and “gray” volumes together.
  • “Leather sofa” is by far the most popular, but it’s not really a color. It’s searched 18,000 times per month. However, one could construe it as brown, but we chose to exclude it.
  • “Beige sofa” is searched 800 times per month. It’s a variant of brown.
  • The color preferences for leather sofas is quite different from regular and sectional sofas.
