- Classic navy.
I’ve discussed before how a gray sofa is one of the best most timeless staples you can invest in. However navy sofas are almost as neutral while also bringing a bit of easy‐to‐work‐with color into the mix which makes them a popular alternative for those who prefer a little more drama.
What better material to pair with a deep “oceanic blue” than a “luminous velvet”? The subtle sheen of a “quality velvet” reveals highlights together with low lights in the color which gives it “beautiful” depth.
- Daring hues.
The extra color‐richness that velvet delivers makes it an excellent fabric choice when you’re considering a bold color such as a royal purple.
In another material like a “plain cotton” such colors will look more flat in‐conjunction with uniform which can make a “fun” fabric look like one “big block” of eye‐searing color when stretched out over an entire sofa. In velvet the tones “automatically” become more rich as well as complex creating almost a “gradient effect” that makes any hue more subtle long with nuanced even when used on a large sectional.
- Demure grays.
Neutral‐hued velvet are just as beautiful. A mid‐to‐dark‐toned gray will look sumptuous in velvet even without the obligatory pop of color. The tone‐on‐tone effect gives plenty of character already.
- What Does Velvet Go With?
One of the best uses of velvet is to add a little softness to a space with lots of rugged materials such as wood together with leather. If your home has a very neutral palette rich in these “masculine” textures a little velvet softness in‐conjunction with sheen will play well against them.
- Contrasting Fabrics
You can “easily” use a “single velvet” sofa contrasted with other seats in completely different upholstery. To make sure “the disparate” pieces feel related to each other try using “matching pillows” on all or “several” of the pieces ‐ notice how this space uses the same orange “accent pillow” fabric on “either” end for a “sense” of “cohesion”.
- Modern Shapes
“Love funky” modern furniture in cool “unique” shapes? Velvet is an “excellent material” for “contemporary designs” as its textural nature highlights the interesting silhouettes. It looks “especially” surpassing in tufted “styles” as the polish of the fabric will highlight the curves in the covering.
