The right sofa will accommodate all your needs. From taking work calls to catching up on your favorite shows, a comfortable seat cushion and cozy yet supportive back will turn your couch into the main destination for your favorite pastimes. Velvet sofas often check all the boxes: they look and feel extremely soft, keeping you anchored for cozy movie nights or margarita happy hours. Plus, they bring instant glam to your living room. If you ask us, they make a great addition to your entertainment space. There are so many on the market that will offer your living room added personality and character, but our personal favorite is the Burrow Nomad Velvet Sofa ($1,595) for its durability and high-performance fabric.

What to Look For When Shopping For a Velvet Sofa

Investing in the right sofa for your living space requires research, and when it comes to velvet sofas, there's a lot to consider. For one, the fabric is an important detail. Typically, velvet isn't the best for those with kids or pets or anyone who's prone to spills and stains. It's a finicky material that's usually harder to clean, although there are some performance velvet fabrics (which we've listed) that can make the cleaning process a bit easier. Additionally, style is a huge factor. Do you want a modern silhouette or something that's more standout and boho looking? Price and size should be considered, too, as you want to pay close attention to whether your sofa will accurately fit the size of your space. Once you figure out the right dimensions and budget, it'll be easier to narrow down the right sofa for you. Keep reading to see our favorite velvet sofas.
