10 ways to style velvet furniture

Velvet Furniture: What, why, how?

Home decor trends come and go, but velvet is here to stay. The luxurious look of this texture adds depth and lustre to any space, giving your home a stylish aesthetic that will make you the #interiorsinspo to all of your guests. From Mid-Century Modern to relaxed Modern Boho, velvet furniture is a stunning addition to any room. And if you’re looking to switch your home interiors completely, swapping a leather sofa for a velvet alternative or adding a smaller feature like a velvet ottoman or velvet armchair can totally transform your space. Brosa has a wide range of velvet furniture, so whether you’re looking to add subtle softness or go all-out, here’s our interior style tips & tricks to getting velvet right.

Velvet Couch  

Striking and timeless, a velvet sofa is the real MVP of velour furniture. Indulge a total texture revamp with the romantic luxury of the Lana Sofa Bed in Dusty Rose, the perfect choice when you’re looking for a glamourous yet functional addition to your living space. Pull and tear proof, Brosa’s superior fabrication combines the elegance of velvet with the durability required for today’s lifestyle. Layer up cushions in different fabrics to soften the look; linen and cotton printed cushions are a great option.

Velvet Ottoman 

There is more to life than a velvet couch (although we really do love them), so if you’re reluctant to indulge a total transformation, we recommend starting small. A velvet ottoman can inject a touch of modern luxury to your space at an affordable price. Be bold with the Lena Square Ottoman or opt for the Odette Footstool in Blush Pink for a bitesize introduction to the world of velour interiors.

Velvet Armchair 

Brighten any room with a coloured velvet armchair. Taking cues from mid-century design, the Frank Armchair provides an eye catching contrast, making your lounge feel stylish and cosy with ease. Be brave and opt for a bold colour to breath life into a tired space. Opt for blush pinks, deep ocean blues and rich greens for easy access to the trend.

Velvet in the Bedroom 

A touch of velvet in the bedroom is ideal if you’re tentatively stepping your toes into the velvet decor trend. Whether you’re upgrading a master suite or designing a fun children’s room, make any bedroom feel like a true sanctuary with the Arc Velvet Bed Head and Arc Bed Base. From bold and bright or light neutral tones, a velvet bed head is a simple and effective way to add style and luxury to any room.

Velvet Dining Chairs

Velvet dining chairs inject personality and interest to any room, as well as giving your interiors an effortlessly-cool feel that will never go out of style. Add polish to a modern boho dining space with the Petite Fleur Rattan Dining Chairs or inject a pop of colour into a traditional setting with the timeless mid-century inspired Frank Dining Chairs. The luxuriously soft, tactile nature of velvet ensures your dining experience is as comfortable as it is stylish.

Velvet Office Chair 

If you’re working from home at a desk, it’s about time you invested in a proper office chair – and we’re yet to find one as luxurious as the Vince Office Chair. The perfect partner in productivity, it has a stylish silhouette and plush seat. Who knew WFH could look this chic.

Velvet On Velvet 

If you’re really feeling the look, don’t be scared of doubling up. A velvet sofa styled next to a velvet accent chair in a contrasting colour is worthy of serious appeal. For a cozy upgrade to a reading nook, place a velvet ottoman in front of a velvet armchair in the same shade to upgrade a plain corner.

Mix and Match

Velvet has the ability to add any excitement to a room. Contrast it with more industrial materials like reclaimed wood, metallic accents like gold and brass or polished concrete for the ultimate luxe look. This interior trend is a match made in heaven, showcasing a play on soft and hard elements to give your decor an effortlessly-chic look. Double up and display a pair of Lisette Armchairs opposite your couch for a lounge room with wow factor.

Get Moody 

Designers are using dark velvety hues to transform rooms into cosy, intimate spaces. Opt for velvet decor in darker colours to instantly add a cool, moody edge to space. Dark green or rich blue tones in velvet textures look chic and cosy. Be bold with the Notting Hill Velvet Chesterfield in Ocean Blue or Ebony Black for easy access to the luxe trend. It’s a daring move but we love the moody effect dark velvet can have.
