A room can be completely transformed just by adding a velvet sofa and nothing else. One of the most sensual fabrics, it’s carried an air of exclusivity since it first adorned the robes of royalty in the the medieval era. Using it in a living space adds depth, richness and comfort- it will soften the appearance of hard surfaces such as tiles, wood or stone. Do note, however, that using it sparingly is key- too much velvet in a room will look off. Instead, use just one sofa with one-two armchairs max. Here are the top sublimely chic ones on our radar right now.
