Contrast Trim---Love it?

Part of being someone who tries their hardest to decorate well on a dime, is looking for ways to add "expensive" details for very low cost. 

One of the things I'm super obsessed with right now is contrast piping.

It takes hardly any fabric or time for your upholsterer, yet the impact is very high.

I love the black piped blush sofa in this apartment designed by Erin Gates of Elements of Style.

This is another example, although, let's be honest, the fabulousness of this situation has almost nothing to do with the contrast orange piping. It all lies in the stunning Trina Turk for Schumacher fabric.
It's to die!

I also adore trimmed cushions on sofas. 
It makes the look so much more cohesive.

I love the trimmed moss green velvet sofa in Tory Burch's living room.

What's is your take on contrast trim/piping on a sofa?

I love what the contrast does for the seating, and the room. That red monogram one has my heart!
