The Slouch Sofa has long been one of our most popular couches due to its generous dimensions, removeable covers and modular design, which is great for families of all sizes. With this in mind, the Early Settler product team has expanded the Slouch range to include velvet options and new, on-trend earthy colours.
“The velvet fabric trend is going from strength to strength and is an absolute favourite of our Early Settler customers,” says Monica Porter, furniture buyer with Early Settler. The trend really gained momentum over the last year, she explains, with so many of us spending more time at home due to the pandemic and updating home comforts.
“It’s set to become an even more popular fabric as we move into 2022,” she says. “People love its lustrous appearance, super-soft feel and practicality — it’s surprisingly durable and easy to clean.”

Likewise, world events have also had an impact on the homes we are wanting to create. There’s been a subtle shift away from the sleek minimalism of recent years to the desire to reconnect with nature and embrace a more earthy aesthetic.
“The new velvet fabrics and rich nature-inspired colours perfectly complement the stylish Slouch silhouette and make it cosier than ever, while also being incredibly comfortable for those wanting a generously sized sofa to relax on.”
We have been increasingly looking to nature for colour inspiration. We’ve introduced rich earthy tones like beige, rust, golden yellow and earthy moss green to connect our homes and ourselves more with nature.
