Tap into the velvet interior trend with this divinely plush sofa

Timeless and classic with an unequivocal sense of luxury, it’s easy to see why a touch of velvet is a highly sought-after addition to one’s interior. And what better way to implement it than with a plush velvet sofa. Dripping in old-school glamour, the Ferdinand sofa, currently available from Sarsfield Brooke, serves as the pièce de résistance, the focal point of any room.

The aesthetically pleasing asset, crafted by Opera Contemporary of Italy, goes beyond just looks. Put the beauty to one side and you’ll find that the humble velvet couch is also comfortable beyond measure. In fact, there’s nowhere we’d rather whittle away our evenings, curled up against its comforting fibres with a gripping novel in hand. Decked out in champagne-tinted velvet, it remains attention-grabbing but not garish, while the small features like the polished metal legs (available in either brass, burnished metal or chrome) keep it distinctly contemporary.

At once practical and prepossessing, the velvet centrepiece draws the eye with its opulent visual and lures in unsuspecting passers-by with its unique upholstery — daring them to become enveloped in its comfort. Serving as an on-trend piece not only now but for years to come, it’s unsurprising why the Ferdinand Sofa is firmly on our Christmas wish list.

The Ferdinand sofa is available in a wide range of factory fabrics or leathers.
