11 On-Trend Velvet Sofas to Refresh Your Living Room

Velvet is quickly becoming the fabric of the season. Here's how you can bring it home.

Velvet has been popping up everywhere the past few months — from fashion to accessories (hello velvet choker everyone, including me, is rocking on the reg.) to home decor. And while the fabric has been around for years, its newly trendy status has added a freshness that's impossible to ignore, and that makes it the perfect choice for a home refresh.

Sure, you could incorporate velvet into your space in small ways, think throw pillows and curtains, but why not really go for it and bring in a sumptuous velvet sofa? The fabric's softness makes it uniquely qualified to provide extra comfort, and its sheen feels glamorous and inviting at the same time. Read on for 11 on-trend choices that would be a welcome addition to any living room.
