dark velvet sofas

Love them? Or not a favorite of yours?

I am thinking about one for our new living room. Not something that I usually gravitate towards... but I have really been drawn to them lately.

I am LOVING the grey ones! Especially the tuffed one. I have a green velvet sofa at our cabin and we love it.

They're not only beautiful, but they look just incredibly comfy. I could use a nap right about now :)

Love them all!! Our sofa is charcoal velvet (of sorts) and I love it- if I had to do it again though, I'd go for emerald green or indigo blue - adore!

LOVE! In fact, I almost bought one, but it was too dark with other stuff going on in the room. Kind of wish I had, though.

our sofa is brown suede/velvet (which I didn't know existed until we bought it). it has the durability of ultra-suede but looks more like velvet. so far it has held up really well to spills!

Stephanie Sabbe said...

So ours is velvetish. It's from West Elm and it's navy and you can see EVERYTHING on it. We do not even have the cat anymore and I still vacuum it once a week. cute, but be warned:)

Loo said...

Velvet wears REALLY well. Our living room sofa is a gold/camel velvet. I can even let the dog on it!! And I don't let him on our family room sofa (the throw pillows on that sofa are an open weave linen and he would snag them). You will never regret a velvet sofa - go for it!

Timeless, elegant. The focal point in my 1901 English pine library. Mine is a Chesterfield, tufted with bun feet -- a gorgeous forest green velvet - like Scarlett O'Hara's "curtains from Tara" dress!
A pair of white Jack Russell's drape themselves across the back barking at any moving thing! Needless to say, I have a superb lint roller!!

The tufted one is amazing!!

Elizabeth said...

PS - Thanks for your sweet comment today. My daughter feels so encouraged by all the sweet words. :)

Cove and Grey said...

Oooh!! I love them! We had a velvet chair in our living room growing up and it was always my favorite place to sit :)

Emily said...

I think dark velvet is beautiful.... and so functional. We have two velvet sofas- one brown and the other dark gray (the Lee one pictured above from SL!). Plus, they're easy to clean and I don't stress about dirty little fingers touching them!
