velvety goodness

My love of velvet sofas is starting to get out of control… it’s verging on the unhealthy. Although I would be quite happy with one in any colour (in fact this very afternoon I was given some very strange looks in Oliver Bonas for gazing at their velvet tub chair and stroking the colour swatches for longer than is considered normal), I think I’m drawn the most to the grey and navy versions with bright contrasting cushions. And I’m gonna need a buttoned ottoman too. I think I need help.

    I too long for a velvet sofa but don’t think the other half agrees. I reckon I can definitely get away with a velvet chair though so that Oliver Bonas one is going to get stroked by me too soon!

    Do it do it do it!! I love my velvet sofa and these examples are all kinds of fabulously wonderful. I still sit on mine (over a year now that I’ve had it, you would think the novelty would have worn out by now but oh god no) and just stroke it.

    It’s my favouritist thing in my whole house. Except perhaps for W and the cats. Maybe not the cats. Hmm.

    Spotted! Velvet sofa on Eastenders tonight – in Heather’s lounge! Can’t decide if this has made me want one less, or made me outraged that if Heather deserves one, then I definitely do!

    Well, if “Hevs” has one then you know it’s en vogue 😉
