I came across this beautiful rich red velvet sofa by Studio Ko in Paris, and couldn’t stop looking at it! I’ve always loved the richness of velvet and the jewel colours it comes in. It adds a gorgeous texture to any room and is always so lovely to the touch – who can restrain from running your fingers over velvet when you see it!!!
In fact, I love everything about this room. That shaggy Moroccan-esque rug, round over-sized coffee table, and the timber slat vertical blinds (never thought those words – that I love vertical blinds – would ever leave my lips!!). But, that red sofa is the hero piece of the room (in my humble opinion).
So I started exploring other velvet sofas to see what’s out there….these are my fave 5 (see gallery below)!
If you’re wanting to add velvet to a room, here are my top tips to nailing it:
- if it’s the hero piece of the room, let it be that. DOn’t place too many other items that can take away from it in the room
- if you’re going jewel colours, be gentle with your accessorising. Don’t overdo it. One or two small pieces echoing its tones will be enough
- one velvet item (or a pair of sofas) is enough. Again don’t overdo the one element (this being velvet).
- add other textures in neutral colours to be the supporting act. Think Mongolian sheepskin cushions, tribal feather necklaces, shells, metallics
- a range of rugs can work back beautifully with velvet sofas. Plains, patterns, coloured, textured. Just make sure you have somehting there that works back with it AND grounds it in the room
