How to Style: The Vintage Velvet Couch


We are all a little velvet obsessed here at Street Scene, and when it comes to home decor there's nothing more fabulous than vintage velvet!  Yesterday we got in this beautiful designer velvet loveseat, and my mind started instantly filling up with design inspiration.  A bright sofa is all you need to add an eclectic and modern feel to any room and it will serve as a focal piece for your space for years to come!  Whether your style is more traditional, clean and modern, or young and eclectic, a velvet sofa can add a luxe and sophisticated touch to any room!  Take a look at some of the photos below to get inspired about how to style a vintage velvet couch in your own home!
