New to Lounge Lovers is our elegant, luxurious and calming velvet range. Velvet has the power to punctuate nearly any aesthetic with very little effort and is far more versatile than you may think. Plus, beyond the beauty of velvet, soft textured fabrics such as silk and velvet are meant to be associated with feelings of comfort and protection.
“A bit of velvet can bring romance and luxury to any space – whether it’s subtle, like a cushion or a throw, or a stand out piece like the Kellie 2 Seat Sofa in Velvet Grass”, says Jeannett Hojer Bessmann of Lounge Lovers.
“Feature pieces work best in bold, vibrant shades like turquoise, green and golden yellows”.
So, how do you work it into your own home?
Less is more
One stand out piece is more than enough to make an impressive impact. From sofas to armchairs, you can pack a punch without going overboard. We love the Maggie 3 Seat Sofa in Velvet Claret.

Mix and match
Velvet is surprisingly universal and works back with almost any other fabric or material. Try it alongside rattan, marble or mixed metal for an eclectic but elevated finish.

Jewel tones make the most impact in this luxurious fabric, perhaps because of its regal heritage. Choose a colour that speaks to you, but we love deep navys, rich reds and grassy greens.

Minimal and monochrome
If you’re fond of a monochromatic colour palette, fear not! The addition of velvet will give you the layers you need to keep things interesting.
Soft and romantic
Lovers of the look of romantic and femininity, meet your new obsession. Velvet adds softness that other materials can’t create, and is easy as adding an armchair into your bedroom or sitting room such as the Maggie Armchair in Velvet Blush.
Any style, any home
Velvet has its place in any home. Industrial enthusiasts might wonder how velvet fits in with raw materials, and modern coastal lovers might not think velvet has a place inside the natural and neutral look. But contrary to what you might think, velvet can bring an unexpected pop of warmth. With a large selection available from bold colours through to cool neutrals, velvet can be as bold or as pared back as you please. One thing’s for sure; it’s a showstopper in any setting.
