Why choose velvet sofas?

An Englishman’s home is his castle, or so they say. And no matter if yours is a cottage in Cumbria or a stately home in Suffolk, a velvet sofa will do just the job of adding grandeur and glamour to your home. There’s no avoiding the fact that velvet sofas are back and our homes are singing with glee at their bright and beautiful new additions.

So why choose velvet sofas? Well for us it’s obvious! From ruby reds and peacock greens, to grey velvet sofas that scream on trend opulence, there is a velvet look to suit all tastes.

Our fabric shelves are full to bursting with little gems, just waiting to be taken home and checked for colour, practicality and softness. Our House fabric collection is home to our favourite Portland, Rockall, Scarborough and Plush velvets. Each one has been hand selected for it’s own unique reason and our Design Consultants will be more than happy to help you find the right one to suit your needs.

Portland Velvet: A velvet sofa in Portland not only has the luxury of Italian styling but also has an oh-so practical stain-resistant finish. Coming in a range of 53 colours, this is a dream come true for fabric aficionados.

Rockall: We dare anyone to put this fabric through its paces. Stain-resistant and super hard wearing, this is the ultimate family friendly fabric as well as winning in the show-stopping sofa stakes.

Scarborough: A truly beautiful velvet for sofas, beds, chairs and, well, just about anything. A cotton velvet is tough but will pick up the odd mark along the way, much like a beloved leather chair. This is a sofa that well tell a story as it is passed from generation to generation.

Plush: Our best value velvet with the softest of finishes. Plush is incredibly tactile and fits perfectly with the hygge trend. We’re sure that a snuggly chair is good for the soul.

Let the velvet love flow throughout your home. Choose little velvet chairs popped perfectly in a corner or for hotel chic at home, cover a luxuriously grand headboard in the velvet of your dreams. A neutral tone will add subtle hollywood style glamour or add pops of colour for a fun and playful feel.

Have a little browse through our velvet fabric samples, free to order online and delivered directly to your door for your perusal at home. Or for a veritable feast of velvets, make a day of it and visit your nearest showroom. Our Design Consultants will be on hand to help you design your own perfectly personal sofa.
