Velvet sofas and occasional chairs are hot right now, particularly in the colours of the moment: blush, emerald, teal and mustard.
The trend for velvet upholstery has been building for some time along with other interior style trends from the ’70s that we’ve reinterpreted for our homes. From traditional chesterfields to mid century styles and contemporary designs, velvet sofas are in and bringing texture and warmth to our living rooms.
I’ve rounded up 15 of the best velvet sofas and statement chairs that you can buy online and in store right now.
Do you have a favourite? It’s hard to choose, right? I really love the pleated detail in the swivel chair from West Elm and the quirky design of the Bastille & Sons chair. As for the sofas, I just can’t decide. With more brands bringing out new season ranges as we speak we’re bound to see more velvet sofas hitting the stores – I don’t think this trend has peaked yet.
