Make a Statement... With Velvet

By ercol on 15 August 2019

Forli collection

Whether it’s in homes, on the catwalk or in the shops, we’re seeing much bolder, more exciting design choices in 2019. Sunset colours such as yellow, pink and coral are being used to add more vibrancy and character. That extends to textures too.

Fabrics with a texture, like velvet, presented in a unique colour can bring furniture to life and really make a statement in your home.

A new dimension for your sofa

At ercol, we work with a vast array of colours and textures to update and keep our furniture on trend. This Autumn, we’re delighted to launch our new fabrics in the Edit and Fresco fabric collections.

The contemporary Favara sofa range is available in a choice of 13 stunning Fresco fabrics, including five stunning velvet shades. A rich forest green or sapphire blue can be used to create a moodier luxe appearance, with mustard and coral shades for a warmer look.

Alternatively, our Cosenza sofa collection has been paired with our Edit fabrics, including a choice of three charming velvets. Each complements the retro undertones, such as deep-buttoning back cushions and an oak under frame.

Introducing the Forli collection

Our stylish Edit fabrics are also available on the new Forli collection of sofas. Forli is tailored to modern homes, with slim profiles and available in a range of sizes. That includes three sofa sizes, a chair, footstool and snuggler – and a chaise end sofa, which is perfect for open plan spaces.

Choose from a selection of 31 fabrics, including velvets in deep blue, mustard and grey tones. The plush fabrics combine with stunning turned oak legs to create a statement piece with a softer, calmer look, perfect for any sitting room, bedroom or conservatory.

Finding the right fit for your home

Sofas are at the heart of any room’s appearance and atmosphere. With so many fabrics to choose from, it’s important to get the right fit for your home. Our configurator allows you to pair different fabrics with each style of sofa to get a better idea of how it will look.

Our fabric configurator

Your fabric of choice – for both the body and scatter cushions – will be shown on the sofa, so you can instantly envisage it in your home. That said, it’s always best to see the fabric in situ as computer screens all display colours differently, not to mention the artificial and natural lighting in your home.

Once you have narrowed it down to a few select fabrics, you can order fabric samples free of charge. When they arrive, you’ll be able to see the fabric in your home and how it sits with curtains, carpets and other furniture.

Fabrics for every style

At ercol, we’re always working to create exciting new looks for your home, from furniture styles to the colour palette of fabrics. For more design inspiration, take a look at our full range of fabrics or browse our sofa collections.
