Like actress Emma Stone gripping onto her Oscar for La La Land, velvet is holding hard and fast to its reign as the “It” fabric of the year. In fashion, luxe velvet showed up everywhere from the runways to the red carpet. So it’s really no wonder the silky, soft, plush material is all over sofas, as well.
New for the fall and winter markets, many models (arguably the most thrilling) mix buttoned-up Old Hollywood style with rich, saturated color for breakthrough performances that steal the show.
Delano — ModShop
Be still our beating hearts. As if the delicious biscuit tufting weren’t enough to make us swoon, the Delano sofa from ModShop is finished in rich Hunter velvet that is as sophisticated as it is intoxicating.
Pair the bold hued couch with classic black and white-styled room to add some playfulness to an otherwise sophisticated palette.
Sabine — Nathan Anthony Furniture
A modern take on the Chesterfield silhouette, the Sabine sofa from Nathan Anthony Furniture won’t be type cast. While it’s all-over deep tufted design is decidedly Old World, its squared-off shape and Elated Gold velvet upholstery offer a more modern spin on the classic.
Style this stunning sofa with 21st-century silhouettes to add to the sought-after eclectic vibe to any well-appointed living room.
Miller Tufted Velvet — Safavieh Couture Velvet
Designers love a gray sofa for its ability to anchor a room, but when it can both pull a look together and set itself apart, now that’s something really special. The Miller Tufted sofa from Safavieh’s Couture Velvet line gives a powerful, understated performance in Giotto Grey velvet.
We can’t take our eyes of this tuxedo style with pillowy tufts on the back and sides.
Atticus — Roger + Chris
Talk about a refreshing (and colorful) curveball: Roger + Chris’ take on a Mid-Century Modern icon comes with fresh new upgrades like 50/50 down/feather-blend cushions and Leggett & Platt's Elite Series Soft Luxe pocketed coil seat support system.
Thanks to its dashing good looks, solid construction and comfy details, the company’s Atticus sofa is truly a triple threat. Custom options like Como Shrimp velvet upholstery is just icing on the cake.
La Rosa— Jennifer Taylor Home
Making a splash is all about playing it safe … said no one ever.
A little mysterious and determinedly unforgettable, the La Rosa Chesterfield sofa, neatly tailored in navy blue velvet, from home décor’s very own JT (that’s Jennifer Taylor) is a bold choice that will feel right at home in both traditional and modern settings.
