Top 5 Velvet Sofas

Velvet sofas are an incredibly poplar style at the moment, harking back to classic 70s and 80s fashions, suggesting associations with luxury and decadence, and also just being soft, warm and comfortable. It’s no wonder they are so popular, but some sofas work particularly well in velvet, and here are our top picks:

Galloway chaise sofa - Velvet corner sofa

The Galloway chaise sofa is the perfect example of the luxurious, decadent style so closely associated with velvet. With its sumptuous styling, classic features and deep, plump, feather-filled cushions it’s all about sitting, or perhaps lying, back and relaxing. The left- or right-handed chaise end just adds to that sense of comfort and by providing a wide, generous space to put your feet up when reading a book, watching television, or even having a nap.

Malvern - Blue velvet sofa

The utterly distinctive Malvern is a modern take on classic style, with elegant neo-classical fluting and a curvaceous, comfortable seat. It’s not a sofa to blend into the background, and it looks fantastic in blue velvet; the perfect way fabric to highlight its uncompromisingly luxurious proportions and chic design features. Try highlighting with yellow or orange scatter cushions and throws for a look that will stand out in any space.

Helena - Grey velvet sofa

A very different style to the previous two sofas, the Helena is clean and unadorned. Its minimalist styling lends itself to low-key, muted design styles which is why we love it in grey velvet. This, combined with its simple, sophisticated look gives it an air of unpretentious comfort that works perfectly in a modern or Scandinavian-inspired interior.

Alexi - Velvet sofa bed

Another elegant contemporary, the Alexi has simple, clean lines, combined with understated distinctive features like simple buttoning on the seats and the option for subtly curved arms. It’s built for comfort, though, with deep seats and elegant headrests, which is why it’s another perfect choice to upholster in plush velvet. It’s also available as a sofa bed, including with a chaise end that opens up for storage; perfect for keeping bedding for your sofa bed out of the way but close to hand.

Stirling - Velvet Chesterfield sofa

If there’s one sofa that’s perfect for upholstering in rich velvet, it’s the Chesterfield. The most recognisable sofa style in the world, it’s a timeless classic that has graced Victorian drawing rooms and 80s apartments, and works perfectly in velvet. Whether it’s an understated bottle green, reminiscent of gentleman’s clubs and smart bars, or a bold purple, Velvet brings out the best in the Chesterfield, accentuating the curves and shapes created by its deep buttoning.

Of course, almost any sofa can work in velvet, so you are only limited by your imagination, but let these suggestions inspire you to consider this beautiful, comfortable, luxurious fabric.
