Can you tell that we really like velvet furniture? Our latest collection – the Nordic collection – is our third range of velvet sofas and armchairs to launch on our website, and we hope you love the new styles as much as we do. If you’re unsure about velvet furniture, we thought we’d share the reasons why we’re so besotted with the sumptuously soft fabric. The velvet trend is going nowhere, so let us share our velvet secrets with you.
1. It’s timeless
The best thing about a velvet sofa or armchair is that it’s a timeless piece of furniture that isn’t going to go out of fashion any time soon. Yes, you may chose to go for a vibrant trend-led colour, but if you choose a hue that you love, it will stand the test of time.
2. It’s perfect for snuggling up on
Think about a cosy winter’s night; candles lit, wrapped up in a blanket watching one of your favourite films. Now imagine the same scenario but you’re lounging on a velvet sofa; there really is no better fabric for snuggling up on. All of our velvet sofas are large enough to cuddle up on, and our snuggle seats in particular were literally made for getting cosy and enjoying a night in.
3. It’s stylish
As well as being incredibly comfortable, velvet sofas and armchairs are also design-led pieces. Whether you opt for a chesterfield sofa, a more streamlined silhouette or a cosy little armchair, your new piece of furniture is guaranteed to be a talking point in your home.
4. It goes with everything
You don’t have to worry about velvet clashing with any other fabrics or materials in your home – it looks just as great teamed with industrial bare brick walls as when styled against a painted wood paneled wall. When paired with bare bricks, concrete walls and exposed light bulbs, a velvet sofa instantly warms a room and invites you to snuggle up and get comfortable. In fact, any room is instantly given an extra warmth with the addition of velvet furniture, especially when you layer cushions or sheepskins to make it even more inviting. Minimal spaces benefit from well-designed velvet furniture with sleek silhouettes whereas those who love colour can select from a range of vibrant hues with our Classic and Snuggle collections.
5. It works for any style
Whether you prefer a classic style or a more modern look for your home, a velvet sofa will easily fit in. If you’re looking for a sofa to fit in with a more traditional decor, our Hugo or Albert chesterfields are perfect – and you could opt for a vibrant colour if you want to make a statement. Love the streamlined look associated with Danish design? Our new Nordic collection works perfectly with either a Mid-Century aesthetic or with more contemporary styling – we particularly love how they look teamed with brass & glass side tables and sheepskin throws. If you’re looking for something a little more glamorous, the Rosie sofa is super stylish but also incredibly comfortable. If you’re not sure which sofa would work best for your home, give us a call on 0161 926 8763 and we’ll be more than happy to help you decide.
