Poppy 3 Seater Sofa in Velvet Touch - Dragon Eye

Soft, sumptuous velvet is the epitome of luxury. A velvet sofa would make a stylish addition to any lounge. Set to be a huge trend for 2017, velvet is an adept choice for a sofa or chair. If you've got the room, why not make a real style statement and choose from our range of velvet corner sofas?

At The Lounge Co. we offer two types of velvet fabric; Velvet Touch and Crushed Velvet:


Velvet Touch is a beautifully soft, cotton fabric. This stylish velvet offers an opulent appearance which would make a statement on any sofa or chair. Even better, Velvet Touch is a Band A fabric, meaning the luxury look is surprisingly affordable. Velvet Touch is available in 10 sumptuous shades:

A velvet sofa is elegant and enduring, and depending on which sofa style you choose, can equally suit a modern or traditional lounge. If you want a timeless look, choose a neutral tone such as Koala Cub (Velvet Touch) or Monkey Tail (Crushed Velvet). Want your sofa to make a statement? Go for a more vibrant shade such as our best-selling Dragon Eye (Velvet Touch) or Burnt Orchid (Crushed Velvet).

Still unsure of how a velvet sofa could fit into your lounge and your life? Here’s some interior inspiration:


Inky Indigo

The deep blue of our Midnight Indigo velvet makes a real statement. Accentuate the inky tone with brass accessories and our gorgeous Abstract Peacock cushion.

We’ve set Violet in Midnight Indigo against a backdrop of cool and contemporary ‘Denim Drift’ by Dulux. Discover more here.


Gorgeous Grey

There’s something intrinsically sophisticated about a grey velvet sofa. Koala Cub (Velvet Touch) is a warm, timeless neutral. We’ve bought traditional Rose up to date with a mirrored chest and modern framed print.

We’ve matched the warm grey of the sofa with the beautifully neutral ‘Shallows’ by Little Greene. Find out more here.


The warmth of Burnt Orchid (Crushed Velvet) brings an unexpected twist to modern Mallory. We’ve taken a cue from the walnut legs and have chosen an oriental-inspired side table and lamp with a splash of pink.

‘Peignoir’ from Farrow & Ball is a beautiful blush pink with a big dose of grey. See it here.

Liking our velvet vibes? Don’t forget, it’s not all about the sofa; you can get a chair, footstool or cushion in one of our gorgeous velvets. Our complementary cushions start at just £40, meaning that introducing velvet into your lounge doesn’t need to break the bank.
