Luxe it up: 18 Velvet Armchair and Ottoman Options

I am living for velvet armchairs at the moment. And their ottoman counterparts too. As a lover of approachable sophistication when it comes to home style, I feel like velvet ticks all the boxes.

This gorgeous fabric gives your space a sense of luxury if you need to elevate it a bit. But it also brings with it warmth and comfort. And when the fabric is applied to something like an armchair or ottoman, you get just enough elegance without it overwhelming the room.

The best thing about the velvet armchairs and ottomans I’m showing you today? The variety! There’s one in almost every colour imaginable. The jewel tones are probably my favourites, but there are shades to suit neutral tastes, too.

Call a Medic: The dreamboat velvet armchair above is from Adairs. Kensington is its name and I’m bedside myself over it. It’s making my heart skip a beat and I need it immediately. Shop it here if you’re keen.

18 Velvet Armchairs and Ottomans

Before I take you through all the 18 velvet armchair and ottoman options below, let me link you to the ones above. They’re from West Elm and you can shop them here. There are so many colours and sizes available. It makes it kinda hard to choose a fave.

The good thing about a larger ottoman is that you could use them as a coffee table if you wanted to. Pop a decorative tray on top and you’re good to go. You might also want to have one in the corner of your room or walk-in wardrobe. They’d make such a nice place to sit and put your shoes on, don’t you think?

Even a smaller ottoman has use outside of something to rest your feet on. Consider using a few in a living room as additional seating options when people come around. Or try some in your little ones room as chairs they won’t hurt themselves on.

Below are 18 of my fave velvet armchairs and ottomans from some of the best retailers around! Enjoy.
