Our blue sofa has made the big time!…


I’ve written before about our lovely Hutton sofa from Room and Board (including our adventures getting it into our apartment). When we picked out a luscious blue velvet fabric for the sofa, the sales people were definitely a bit surprised. We weren’t going to let a few skeptics stand in the way and rightly so when we got it home, it was gorgeous. Blue velvet perfection.

Now, it seems everyone’s gone gaa-gaa for blue velvet. Maybe we’re trendsetters? Or at least early adopters! First, along came Nick Olsen with his great blue velvet sofa in his studio, which was featured in Domino a few months back.


And now, Traditional Home has some big-time blue velvet action in their pages. Here is a sample of their finds.

Ha! Way to go Abbey! I love your blue velvet sofa, it looks so traditional yet not. Oh, you’re a trendsetter alright. 🙂

There is something lush and magical about that shade of blue. I aspire to go to the Academy Awards some day (a girl can dream!), and when I do I plan on wearing a deep shade of sapphire blue.

Could you tell me the name and brand of the fabric. I’m looking to do the same but haven’t been able to see the blue that I like.
Many thanks

Me too! Love this color and am hopeful it may be a match for Dwell Studio fabric/drapes I made.. Looking to make a blue velvet headboard. Do you know what fabric was used? It IS beautiful 🙂

Thank you in advance!
