The use of velvet in sofas is often linked to being a super luxurious yet a delicate material to care for. Pair velvet with the right living room accents and instantly the living space feels more luxurious. Read on as we bust the myth of velvet and expose its practicality as a functional furniture material option.


Merits of Velvet

What draws the impression of opulent to velvet is in its unique lustrous sheen. It can make any simple or dull room beam with radiance.

Contrary to common belief, velvet is not as frail as it seems. With the right care and proper maintenance, it is not surprising that velvet can endure decades of wear.

Velvet being the only fabric that does not have any raised weaves or loose threads, is lesser prone to tears. This is great news for pet-owners!

Light dusting every week should do the trick to maintain the hygiene of your velvet sofa. For a thorough cleaning, use a vaccum with a specific upholstery attachment to avoid damaging the sheen of the velvet. 

To prevent the velvet from any spillage, it is recommended to apply a coat of repellent as a protectant. If you have unfortunately spilled on your velvet, immediately apply upholstery spray to prevent any staining. Remember to attend to the spill instantly as the stain is tricky to remove once dried. 


What are the best color options for velvet?

We'd say any color you can possibility imagine! In the past, velvet are mostly seen on deeper shades as a symbolism of poise. Today, velvet is made into shades of light, vibrant and even quirky colors.
