{crushing on green velvet}

I'm pretty sure I need to own a velvet sofa one day ... they are so classic & stylish, and owners of velvet often say it holds up well to wear and tear. So what color?? I have to say green would be a strong contender, I'm going to argue that emerald and forest shades are honestly a neutral! Paired with leopard and I am in heaven. Check out these spaces:

Yum, it seems that these shades of green would stand the test of time, wouldn't you say? For me, close contenders would be navy blue hues and charcoal greys. Are you crushing on velvet sofas? What color would you choose?

Yes! So classic. I used to have a major crush on navy blue velvet sofas, well..I still do but now I'm cheating on blue with green! I am thinking about painting my next apartment robins egg blue and I think a pear-green velvet sofa would look so good with it!

Oh I am with you on this. Emerald Velvet (especially the tufted) is so classic and stately. Love!

I've always liked velvet sofas and chairs, though I'd prefer a jewel-tone blue over green. Charcoal grey also works for me.

Oooh! They are all so beautiful. Yet you are absolutely right, a deep blue or charcoal grey would be equally stunning! It would be very hard to decide. If I followed my heart, I'd likely fall in love with deep blue velvet.

I love love love green velvet sofas! I wrote about them last month. I'd love to hear your thoughts on my designs that I did using them in a play room.

My post is: St. Patrick and The Green Sofa.

Thanks so much!

I currently have white cotton slip covered sofas but I've been thinking I need to have some green velvet ones made...and possibly blue as well. Think of the seasonal change possibilities!

I have been obsessing over velvet sofas since I saw a navy version in a room by Emily Henderson. I found an affordable option over at Urban Outfitters. It is such a timeless and luxurious element for a living room or study/lounge.
Great post.
