Ever ask yourself “what color couch should I get?”
Nobody can tell you this directly as it’s a personal choice, but we can set out what sofa colors are the most popular.
Below are three charts setting out the popularity of colors for regular sofas, sectional sofas and leather sofas. Yes, the results differ slightly.
What’s particularly surprising is the actual data. For example, pink is ranked fairly high which I never would have guessed.

How did we gather the data?
This is a very important question. We gathered the data using what’s called “search software” which gleans monthly search volumes for billions of monthly searches including sofa colors.
Please note that the software we use is not 100% accurate, but it’s fairly good, especially in ranking relative to other searches.

Chart 1: Most popular sofa colors
Chart 2: Most popular sectional sofa colors
Chart 3: Most popular colors for leather sofas
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.
