Our lounge has quietly gone from the best room in the house to the one most in need of some drastic TLC. And I have a velvet sofa in mind.
But the problem is, I just can’t chose. A trip to Loaf and Sofa.com on the weekend did little to help. I saw too many sofas that I wanted; I could do up six lounges in six different styles with at least six different amazing sofas. Sadly, I can only afford to do one room, and I just don’t know how I want the finished room to look.
Here are some of the rooms with delicious velvet sofas that have been catching my eye.
The pictures I am drawn to all have bright sofas; teal, yellow, purple. But have I got the guts to go for it? Will I go off it in a year and wish I had chosen something safe and neutral? Would a charcoal or beige be better?
Loaf’s Brönte chaise longue in Lagoon clever velvet.
Loaf’s Bagsie in Grape Clever Velvet. This one also looked gaw-gus in leather. Loaf had the most soft, supple, beautifully worn leather I have seen in a while and it is seriously tempting me away from velvet (you can see the Bagsie in leather here).
And Mr B took a particular liking to this descartes in purple velvet (this picture does not do it justice).
What do you think I should go for? Should I be brave and go for a velvet? What colour? Will I regret it?
Ps this post isn’t sponsored by Loaf or Soaf.com, I just really like these companies which offer great customer service, have a focus on British and have beautiful, well made furniture that looks like it is out of a magazine.
