Velvet Chairs Under 500 that are as Comfortable as They are Cute

Curated by Claudia Shannon / Research Scientist / ishonest


Velvet, the material synonymous with colder temperatures and winter parties, is not just for our wardrobes. In fact, it’s actually perfect for creating a warmer and more cosy indoor space, too.

Take the humble velvet chair, for example. If you have a spare corner in your home, or a raggedy old chair in dire need of an update, then it may well be that a velvet chair ought to be your next homeware investment.
