The Year Of The Velvet Sofa

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
. 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.
