Our Top 5 Velvet Accent Chairs

You already know that Velvet is in this year from our trends of 2020 post. Popular with our clients we have created several designs last year and several in the pipe line this year which have gorgeous velvet pieces. Including Robyn's Nest with it's beautiful red velvet sofa (Swoon) and chairs (

Chairs always seem to be a hit. We also used velvet chairs to add elegance and softness in the bedrooms and in the kitchen living area (Loaf) in our New England styled blue and white house, Sam's.

Being so popular we thought a round up of a few of our favorites for 2020 might be a nice idea in case you want to add a little luxury to one of your rooms.

The Lola is a curvaceous burnt orange velvet chair which is everything I, or you, could wish for in an occasional chair. It's stylish with it's clean and simple lines but with the twist of a ruched texture on the the back for what they call "added pizzazz" - smashing. The gorgeous and rich burnt orange velvet adds a real warm and with the oranges vibrancy, is great at adding a punch of colour to a rooms design. The pieces are handmade from birch and foam which as you probably know, is always a bonus for me. The gold coating on the legs finishes the items perfectly as makes this fit for a room you want to ooze luxury and style.

The Spoon armchair, from Soho Home, features a deep buttoned back and traditional pleated scroll arms. It can be seen everywhere from The Ned to Soho House Greek Street (London). With a low table for drinks and relaxed dining this chair is perfect for a casual seat. Also handmade in England by George Smith's skilled craftsmen, its streamlined design makes it ideal for smaller spaces as it can double as a dining chair and armchair.

The Luna Velvet Love-seat from Oliver Bonas exudes contemporary elegance. With design in mind, this velvet sofa is made for two which is ideal for guest bedrooms and snugs. It's formed with curved lines and a rounded back which softens a rooms designs and with the its sumptuous dusty pink velvet gives a rooms a elegant and feminine tone. We love that it's topped with a large cushion for added comfort - a style you can really sink into with the soft-touch velvet fabric and slim tapered wooden legs which complement its modern look.

Used in our Robyn's Nest project here, you can see the Cecil Chair (or two) in the Grass Cotton fabric. The Cecil is definitely a sophisticated armchair which is in a gorgeously stylish mid-century shape, designed for a contemporary home. It's solid oak frame gives this armchair a retro touch that we feel in love with. It’s a piece made for lounging in a living room or snug, but equally works well as a bedroom chair in a larger bedroom. With a deep sprung seat and feather-mix cushioning it is comfortable and perfectly balanced. It boasts an angled back which makes a real difference for relaxing and its pipping and buttoning smarten the silhouette to give it the sophisticated feel.

Lastly, something with some flexibility. The Patterdale, which is a product of the collaboration between DFS and Joules. Based on pure comfort this piece really makes an impact with its' boldness. Featuring deep filled seats and statement scatter cushions this comes in a variety of variations from sofa to armchair to Cuddler and chaise. It also comes in a range of colours and feet options to allow you to create something unique to your space and style.
