Velvet sofas are the ultimate luxury in my book. Soft, cozy and with so much depth and texture, these plush pieces of furniture make any room feel instantly warm. I’ve never taken the leap and upholstered a piece of our furniture in velvet, but it’s always on my to-do list and next winter I might need give it a try. Cozying up on a velvet sofa with a good book and some hot tea is the most comforting feeling. Until that day, here are some of my favorite velvet sofas from home tours past. xo, grace

This deep pink velvet sofa adds a major dose of energy and color to this Philadelphia loft.
These next two examples are more chairs and settees than sofas, but they’re too lovely not to include. Morgan Satterfield’s BRIGHT orange lounge chair is such a bright and exciting contrast against the rest of her home’s more neutral palette.
This has been in the back of my mind for weeks. It’s my ideal dreamy Creamsicle color.
I’m loving the against these clean modern natural wood pieces.
