We adore velvet. It’s one of those materials that are soft, sophisticated and instantly adds a touch of glamour to any room. It’s perfect for winter because it’s always deep and saturated – even in lighter colours. Designer sofas in velvet immediately draw you in, softening your living space, providing a cosy and pretty centrepiece. Fear not, you don’t need to swap your sofa to get this trend right. Smaller pieces like armchairs, ottomans and home accessories can also do the trick. Read below to get tips from the pros on how to incorporate velvet into your home.

For all the velvety goodness you’ll ever want peruse Portuguese brand Munna. On the left, the divine Fringes Sofa and on the right the Babe Armchair in burnt orange. 

Cosy Cushions
Use velvet cushions to add a subtle sheen and warmth to a reading nook, or even scatter them on the floor for a relaxed vibe. Nitin Goyal’s velvet cushion collection not only feels amazingly soft but also has the added excitement of texture. If you prefer something plain we suggest Bivain’s newest velvet cushion collection.

Tender Teal
Balance out this elegant shade with quirky throw pillows like one from the printed velvet collection by Les Ottomans. Add wall shelves with your personal mementoes and photographs, plus, a well-styled designer coffee table to nail the look.

Metallic Velvet
Brass, rose gold and silver pieces continue to be a strong pairing for velvet-upholstered furniture. They create a soothing moment that’s oh-so chic! Opt for the Silver Coral Pendant Light by The Longest Stay (1) or go for these charming golden insects from Mambo Unlimited Idea for a feminine touch (2). Last but certainly not least, invest in the Special Tree Cabinet by Insideherland (3) for the ultimate luxurious feel.

Earthy Velvet
If you prefer a modern-boho look, choose accessories in earthy tones and materials, like wood, ceramic or marble. Complete the look with a green velvet sofa, foliage print wallpaper and a bouquet of flowers in a jewel tone vase…well, you’ve got yourself quite the jungalow moment.
