Velvet Couches Are Going Viral on Instagram, Here Are 7 We Love
There's a reason George Costanza said he'd drape himself in velvet if it were socially acceptable. It's soft, it's luxurious, it's nostalgic. Velvet will always be fabulous, but it's having a moment right now in the form of living room furniture. Most specifically in the lush, inviting, modular style of velvet sofas going viral on Instagram.
From artist Hannah Carrick's magnificent bronze Sarah Ellison sofa as seen in our recent Makers home tour to the spectacular green sofa at the home of vintage furniture curator Run Goh, plus the blink-and-you'll-miss-it finds on our favourite vintage furniture sellers' Instagram accounts—here are 7 velvet couches to inspire you on your search.
