Elevate your living space with a luxurious velvet sofa. Here's our guide on how to choose the perfect design for your space as well as some iconic sofas that we think are worth the investment.
If you're wanting to create a formal space, a structured velvet sofa would be the perfect option for you. Velvet fabric immediately evokes luxury and pairing this with a formal, detailed design will no doubt luxe up your living space.

Velvet sofas are definitely a contemporary option and are bang on trend for 2020 however this doesn't mean there aren't options out there to suit a more traditional space. The Kentwell sofa from Sofas & Stuff has a traditional country feel about it with a more relaxed design with castor feet but is still a stylish addition to any living room.

Colourful velvet sofas are the designs we see all over Pinterest and Instagram however you can make the velvet sofa trend work for you and your space even if colour isn't your thing. Add texture to your neutral space with a luxurious grey or black velvet design.
Comfort is key

A more structured design is what you'd expect from a velvet sofa; however, there are many designs on the market that also focus on comfort and functionality. The Epping corner sofa from Darlings of Chelsea is definitely an investment but its corner design and extra plump cushions and armrests means it will be comfortable for all of the family.
If your living room set up consists of two sofas, you can afford to invest in a stylish piece that doesn't necessarily have to be the most comfortable. A statement two seater velvet sofa is a great choice for a second sofa, especially if you want to incorporate velvet but it isn't totally suited to you and your family's lifestyle.
