West Elm Hamilton Leather Sofa & Plum Free Carpet & LVP Samples

When you’re updating a space, it’s hard to know where to start. We (not surprisingly) suggest you start with the floors. After all, your flooring is the foundation for the rest of your home.

But let’s say you’ve already gotten started on your space refresh, and you are now the proud owner of the West Elm Hamilton leather sofa. You’ve had your eye on it, pinned it on all your mood boards, dreamed about it, and now it’s yours. Amazing. Now what?

When you make a furniture purchase that costs anywhere from $2,100 to $3,500, as this particular couch does, it stands to reason that you want the rest of your space to complement and build off of your new favorite sofa. Although the West Elm Hamilton is a crowd favorite, it’s similar in color to many other popular sofas on the market, such as the Article Sven Charme Tan sofa or the Poly & Bark Cognac Tan Napa sectional.

So you’ve invested in one of these beautiful leather pieces, and now you’re not sure what color flooring to pair with it. Allow us to highlight a few options that would complement your tan leather trophy perfectly, and then invite us over toooh andaah over your immaculate design choices.

Option 1: Keep it light and bright.

Since you’ve got a medium tan sofa on your hands, leaning toward a light and bright flooring option is going to really highlight your leather beauty as your focal point.  

We suggest a fresh, light option such as Plum’s Porcelain Carpet. This particular carpet color is a blend of tan and white, giving the overall perception of being a light, bright carpet, while the tan blend allows this carpet color to be more forgiving to normal foot traffic and pet hair. After all, you’ve got a comfortable couch, so you want a floor that you can be comfortable traipsing around on. 

With a light-colored carpet and a Hamilton sofa, you have a variety of options for fun design choices that would blend well with both. From modern art pieces to full-bohemian-vibe throws and pillows, there’s not a direction you could go that wouldn’t look great with this pair. 

Option 2: Darken the vibe.

Who’s to say you are only entertaining a carpeting choice to pair with your Hamilton sofa? 

Plum’s LVP boasts the look of hardwood without the hassle of worrying about scratches or spills. If you’re wanting to curate a more serious vibe, the Caicos LVP is going to highlight your tan leather sofa in a different light. This rich, dark brown color will be a breathtaking contrast to your couch. Pair with iron accents or a cowhide rug to really lean into the Western vibe.

Option 3: Go for the in-between.

Maybe you bought a leather sofa because it’s comfortable and you love the look, but you don’t necessarily need it to be the statement piece of your room. You want to keep the vibe cozy, but you’d rather the visual focal point be on something else--such as your breathtaking skylight or your wild-colored curtains. 

If you’re looking for your sofa to blend in but still want to fully inhabit the comfy, cozy vibe, we suggest going for a blended brown carpet, such as Twig. This full, black and brown blend is going to keep you and your feet cozy while holding its own against your leather sofa. 

Once you’ve got this intense look on lock, feel free to add bold, dark colors elsewhere in your space to pull focus.

The Plum Promise.

No matter what you choose, at Plum, we promise you’ll love it. That’s the Plum way. We have carefully curated over 30 nature-inspired neutrals that are sure to match any décor, and that includes your new leather sofa.

When selecting new carpet, the first big step is to determine what color will look best in your home. It’s important to mention that flooring in a home should always be nature-inspired neutral color in order to provide design flexibility. Take all the accent colors (greens, reds, blues, etc.) out of consideration. It might seem like a fun idea to decorate with accent colors, but never for your new flooring.
