Blue velvet sofa

Time to add a bit of glamour to your interiors?

14th June 2024

The living room is the heart of the home; it’s where we spend all of our time relaxing, talking with friends and family, and hosting on the weekends. So, since we spend so much time in our living rooms, it’s only natural that we want to be in a space that reflects our tastes and comforts. If you’re reading this because you’ve decided that it’s time to refresh your living space and you’re thinking about adding some more glamour, you’re in the right place.

At Cover My Furniture, our family has four generations of experience and a track record of working with some of the furniture industry’s most reputable brands, such as Multiyork, Laura Ashley, and Collins & Hayes. We take great pride in offering high-quality fitted sofa covers and staying in the know about design and interior trends so we can keep our customers stylish and in the loop!

Introduce texture with a luxurious velvet sofa

Giving your living room a refresh doesn’t have to be a massive, time-consuming process. In fact, we can do a lot of the heavy lifting for you by helping you transform your sofa. When it comes to material, nothing screams luxury quite like velvet, and velvet has been a favourite fabric for clothing and interiors for as long back as the 1300s!

Creating a sense of glamour and elegance has never been easier. At Cover My Furniture, we have a variety of velvet sofa cover designs in all shades that’ll add vibrancy and sophistication to your living room. All you need to do is choose your favourite colour from our velvet collection, whether that’s ruby red, emerald green, denim blue, striking black, or something else entirely, and upload three pictures to your account so we can double-check they are suitable for our covers. Then we’ll send you a free postage bag and a measurement form to fill out. Once we receive your sofa covers, we’ll transform them into fresh new sets that fit your cushions perfectly that you can just slide on!

Complement your sofa with a rug

If there’s money in your budget, or you already have it, wooden flooring makes for a beautiful addition to any home that instantly feels expensive and luxurious – even if it’s luxury vinyl tile or another kind of faux wood. Yet, as stylish as it is, it can make the floor feel slightly plain, and that’s where a rug comes in. Rugs may not sound all that glamorous, but they pull a room together and create focal points while adding an extra layer of comfort and warmth to your space. Plus, when it comes to classy interiors, there’s nothing better than a sofa-rug combo. Velvet sofas pair exceptionally well with flat-woven or low-pile rugs.

Choose a striking shade

If you’re willing to go that extra mile and paint your living room, the payoff you’ll get will be outstanding. When curating a specific vibe in your home, most designers base the colour around the atmosphere they’re trying to evoke. For example, if you wanted to create a relaxed and calming vibe, a dark blue wall paired with a denim blue sofa would be ideal. However, if you’re looking for something more timeless/academia-based, dark green is a fantastic choice, and obviously, for the most striking living room of all, black is the bold choice. Colour theory is a great place to start if you’re unsure of what ambience you’re looking to conjure, but as a rule of thumb for glamour, you can’t go wrong with jewel tones!

Adding glamour to your living room is all about striking the perfect balance between luxury and comfort.
