Designing Your Home With Velvet Sofas

Luxurious Velvet

Deep-coloured velvet fabrics are the hottest new trend in interiors – and with a naturally cosy and luxurious feel, velvet is the ideal choice for your sofa. How can you style your living room to get the best out of this stylish statement piece? We show you the different looks you can achieve with our new opulent range of velvets.

Bold Colour

Bold shades of violet, navy, ochre, and emerald green velvet create a moody, classic, and luxurious feel on furniture. Pantone colour of the year 2018 is Ultraviolet, inspiring a whole host of purple shades in home-wares. And it looks particularly effective as a single statement piece, like our Emily Chair in Opulence Amethyst Velvet.

Dark Flooring and Walls

Creating a dramatic backdrop with dark walls and flooring are the perfect complement for the luxurious feel of velvet. Rich wooden shades, such as Oak and Walnut pair very well with velvet tones. And deep shades of purple and ochre look striking against the fashionable charcoal and navy walls, like our best-selling Mia Sofa in Saffron.

We’ve selected some of the best deep blue and charcoal paint colours on the market above and below.

Texture

A great way to accentuate the gorgeous velvety texture is to add more texture! Lots of texture helps to give living spaces an extra dimension. For a modern look, accessorize your velvet sofa with cushions and throws that are adorned with folky embellishments, appliqué, and raw edges, complementing the tactility of velvet.

Match the embellishments with the walls or sofa colour like these yellow and charcoal cushions.

Playing with different textures and materials can really lift a room. For a more luxurious look, mix faux fur and velvet in neutral shades.

Go a step further and add some super cool 3-d elements to your fabric itself, like our Opulence Circle fabric available on our Jacob Sofa.

Exotic Ethnic Fusion Prints

Exotic prints are offset beautifully by the glamour of velvet. If travel and faraway climbs are more your bag, opt for sophisticated ethnic and tropical prints. Brighter shades of teals and turquoise – like our Mia sofa in Teal Opulence Velvet – complement the look brilliantly, making us think of the bright colours of India and exotic faraway places.

Sophisticated brushed brasses complement the opulent velvet trend and contrast with dark walls perfectly. They can be introduced in the form of lighting, mirrors, and table legs. Emerald green particularly accentuates the brass tones.
