If you like a classic shape, a Chesterfield style or rolled arm sofa is best. For a more modern take, looks for cleaner lines, that will hero the fabric.
Colour-wise, striking blues and peacock green are great for creating a rich, high impact look. For something more muted, champagne, dusty rose pink or black velvet are equally on-trend options.
The right lighting is an important focal point for this look, especially in the evening. Don’t be afraid to add a bit of glitter, metallic gold or highly-reflective crystal to set the mood. This will also add sophistication to dark backgrounds and contrast well against velvet fabrics.
