Recessed Arm Velvet Two Seater Sofa

Recessed Arm Velvet Two Seater Sofa

Black velvet furniture can add a luxurious, modern touch to any space. This compact, two-seater sofa is ideal for small spaces, with two button-tufted bottom cushions, high recessed arms, two plush throw pillows, and tapered gray legs.  

Designer Advice:

When you have limited space, you can achieve a better aesthetic using a two-seater black velvet couch for the living room. The downside of using a two-seater couch instead of a three-cushion sofa is that you might lose enough space to seat three people. But you can compensate for the loss of seating by using decorative kitchen bar stools, foldable living room seats, or small accent side chairs.

Transitional Tufted Velvet Sleeper Futon

Transitional Tufted Velvet Sleeper Futon

Mercury Row®

A transitional sofa suits any space, like this vintage black velvet sofa set sleeper futon adds style and function to your room. The back has button-tufted, vertical channeling and lowers down to turn the couch into a full-size sleeping mattress. 

Designer Advice:

Sleeper futon sofas are the best way to have the best of both worlds. As a couch, you have room for three people to lounge and sit. But when you lower the back of the sofa to lay flat, you also get a spacious full-size mattress that can sleep one to two people.

Glamorous Hollywood Inspired Sofa

Glamorous Hollywood Inspired Sofa

Rosdorf Park

Consider a vintage black velvet tufted sofa like this Hollywood piece for a more glamorous upgrade. The diamond pleated back and armrests add a touch of luxury, while the metallic nailhead trim enhances the rolled armrests and raised notched legs.

Designer Advice:

Decorative design features like nailhead trim, diamond pleated button tuft upholstery, rolled and curved arms and back, and carved legs are easy ways to add accents that can enhance the look of a sofa. You can choose one element for a subtle upgrade or pick multiple items to get a piece with drama.
