Currently Obsessed: Navy Velvet Sofas

There is something so luxurious and glamorous about velvet, especially in rich colors like navy. Of course, my obsession with blue still has a firm hold on me, so my obsession du jour is the thought of a sumptuous navy sofa. Luckily, we just ordered a custom pair of English Roll Arm sofas in navy velvet for my client’s family room! I am so excited for them to arrive. The beauty of navy is that it acts as both a pop of color and an anchoring neutral. Do you think you would ever go for a bold-colored sofa, specifically a navy one?

We just ordered a velvet navy sofa from West Elm for our new house. I cannot wait for it to arrive! Going between pairing it with bright orange, green or yellow. Thanks for the inspiration!

I've been loving navy velvet sofas lately as well! But, I'm not sure I'd ever actually get one myself. Great pics!

in love with all of these! i really need a new sofa and think that navy velvet would be a good neutral. my dogs' hair would show up on it but hopefully it would be easy enough to vaccum up :)

I've been lusting over a navy blue velvet sofa since I saw it on the Sex and the City movie! So gorgeous!

I've had a navy velvet sofa for the past 6 years and love it. I have found it goes with most everything. I'll be very sad when it wears out.

Love a navy sofa! Such a great bold anchor piece, without overpowering.

And navy is so durable...we had one when the kids were little. Worked so well.

I am so excited to have seen your post. I ordered a tufted navy sofa a few months back and it is due to arrive mid October! I lusted over it for a while and finally went for it. I was hoping I made the right decision but these pics and your post just confirmed it!!!! Now off to find a marble and glass two tier coffee table!
