20 gorgeous velvet sofas to die for at every budget

Dramatic, eye-catching and buttery-soft, there’s nothing like a velvet sofa when it comes to the “wow factor”.

Whether as a living room anchor or accent piece, the velvet sofa adds depth and personality to a room in a way that no other type of sofa can compare to – all while being comfy to lounge around on.

And to make things even more enticing, anyone can get their hands on one! 

Despite how rich and luxurious these sofas may look, you’ll find that they don’t have to be expensive. Even at modest prices below $500 can the not so modest velvet sofa be found, and they’re always looking like they should cost way more.

Need more convincing? See them in action for yourself and acquaint yourself with all there is to love about velvet in this giant list of gorgeous velvet sofas for every budget. 

Hopefully by the end you’ll have fallen in love and chosen one of them to bring into your own living room.
