accent blue velvet armchair

10 velvet accent chairs worthy of a boutique hotel


elvet is such a luxurious fabric! I love the feel of it and the fabric has gone a long way from the old days. Remember the the old green velvet chair or sofa? There weren’t so many colours back then! I have been researching about velvet accent chairs for this post and I must admit… there are so many colours!! I personally love a navy blue velvet chair!

When it comes to velvet or any other trend the key is just to add touches of it. If you have a velvet sofa, do not put the cushions and curtains in velvet! Or if you only want to add some velvet touches to a room just go for an accent chair in velvet or some cushions. You don’t need the lot in velvet to make a room feel luxurious and elegant.

I recently bought a blue velvet accent chair for my living room (you can see the chair on the feature image of this post) and I must admit it really completes the room. I still have to add some more details but the chair is so vibrant and comfortable. It took me a while deciding which chair to buy and the style, etc. I want to share with you a selection of accent velvet chairs I have found so you can get inspired by the material, shapes and colours. Some of the chairs are so colourful that they can bright any room. Here are 10 velvet accent armchairs I really like. Which one is your favourite? accent armchair grass cotton velvet
