Why velvet?

Why velvet?

Woven since the middle ages, velvet has continued to be a popular choice for furniture upholstery throughout the years. Its appeal is mainly due to the balance it offers between being heavy and durable while also having a soft, plush surface and a beautiful sheen. Traditionally made from silk, modern day velvet is often made using cotton or synthetics, including rayon and acetate. Cotton velvet, also known as velveteen, is the strongest and most durable of them all.

Velvet sofa care

Velvet sofa care

Velvet sofas are perfect for snuggling down with the whole family. It requires a quick vacuum once a week to remove loose dirt and dust and avoid washing with water. Stay away from the washing machine. Our fabrics aren’t designed to be washed and giving covers a spin at even a low temperature could affect how fire retardant they are, as well as cause the colours to seep and the fabric to shrink.

Velvet sofas in colour

Grey sofas have overtaken black in popularity, a shade that suits almost all homes and tastes. From classic French Connection to homes such as Instagram sensation Mrs Hinch. Blue sofas work well as a stand out piece in neutral tones so cream or white walls or be bold and go for a dark blue sofa against a sea blue wall. Whilst green velvet sofas are a design classic, pink velvet and Chesterfield sofas might not be a combination you automatically think of but works.
