Va va Velvet

Posted on: 28.02.2018

Velvet is definitely back with a bang. Thank goodness we say! Velvet is a little bit like marmite, and here at Cabyn we are definitely in the LOVE it camp. There is just something so soft, luxurious and confident about using velvet. Bold and bright or dark and decadent, velvet is super versatile and works just as well on a slouchy Chesterfield as it does on a cute little tub chair.

There are many reasons to choose velvet. No longer is velvet a risky choice.  Traditional cotton velvet can mark very easily, and this has put people off in the past, but nowadays there are some amazing stain-resistant, hard-wearing fabrics available that will look good and stand the test of time. So if you are worried about the kids, the dog etc., then fear no more!

Some may worry that velvet is too bold a choice. But if you pick a colour you love rather than a hue that is trendy then velvet will sit well in your home (and your heart), and will probably be the envy of your friends, (echos of ‘I wish my husband would let me have velvet’ – we can all hear them!).

Velvet is a fabric that works in any situation, whether your style is cool and industrial or paired-back Scandi, velvet will fit right in, inviting you to cuddle up and snuggle in. If you want a sofa that is more elegant but inviting try our Albi range. Or for a more laid-back style have a look at Herbie.

Choosing velvet for your sofa is like giving it a knighthood, and if you don’t want to go the full monty and have a sofa made then add a touch of velvet with cushions and throws. Get the look below with Cabyn sofas and cushions…
