Get the Look: 10 Velvet Sofas for Any Budget (Photos)

Save or splurge? You decide.

Velvet. A true case of “everything old is new again,” right? After a few decades spent shouldering a reputation for outdated fussiness, this luxe fabric is in the midst of a major comeback. It’s never seemed so glamorously modern—and while you can find velvet on pretty much anything upholster-able, we’re partial to sofas, done in both the simple, clean lines of contemporary design and the vintagey elegance of tufted Chesterfields. The new versions are surprisingly, delightfully versatile, imparting a touch of noir moodiness in dark navy or charcoal; a playful vibrancy in chartreuse or peacock; and quiet sophistication in dove gray and mushroom. Whichever look you choose, the style lends a textural depth and lushness to any design scheme. Here, we’ve tracked down ten velvet stunners to fit any budget, from an under-$700 steal to a nearly $4,000 investment.
