The Year Of The Velvet SofaWednesday, 18 January 2017

Velvet sofas have been on my radar for a while now - I've always admired Erica Davies rich blue one. Well to be honest I admire her whole house, just look at it! I would really like to get myself some new sofas this year, we have some which were given to us when we moved in and I think we might be due a change. My living room currently has a statement red wall but I think I might be drawn to the dark side. I'm thinking to go for a dark statement wall and a rich blue velvet sofa. I'm all about the living room being the epitome of cosiness. I'm thinking about reupholstering a bucket chair I have in our guest room with a velvet fabric too. It's going to be all over my house soon!
Pinterest gives me endless amounts of inspiration when it comes to velvet sofas for my living room, I tend to be drawn to the dark more jewel toned colours. I'm constantly pinning them to my living room board. There are all sorts of different fabric sofas out there but something about velvet feels so luxurious to me. I want to have a range of different textures in my living room when I re-do it and this would create such a warm homely feel.
There are plenty out there to choose from too, so you'll be spoilt for choice. From top to bottom below are Debenhams, Fishpools and Sofa.com. I really like all of the shapes of the sofas below so as long as they come in blue I'd gladly have them. They are quite a statement piece, so it might not be for everyone but if you are looking to add a touch of glamour to your home I'd opt for the velvet trend.
