A traditional design focuses on deep colours that will work in harmony with a burgundy leather sofa and chairs, according to Home and Garden Television (HGTV). Rich colours--such as the golds, ambers, browns and reds found in Oriental rugs--will match the burgundy and create a rustic look in the room.

Brighten It Up

Light colours complement dark burgundy sofas and chairs, such as pale creams, tans, greens, blues and yellows. The Apartment Therapy website states that dark sofas have a masculine feel, but light colours can brighten the room and soften the atmosphere to make it work for men and women alike. Meanwhile, pale neutrals can make the burgundy leather furniture the focal point of the room.

Bottom Line

Rich, dark colours work well with burgundy leather sofas and chairs. However, designers at HGTV and Apartment Therapy recommend including pale colours to brighten the room and avoid burgundy overkill.
