We've found the one fabric that'll make any room look more expensive instantly: velvet. If you want to elevate your space, you really can't go wrong with this luxe material. And because it's equal parts chic and cozy, we're going to be bold and suggest that you opt for a velvet sofa. Sure, you could simply accessorize your space with an accent chair or a set of curtains made with the plush fabric, but why not go all out with a statement-making sofa? As George Costanza would say, "I would drape myself in velvet if it was socially acceptable." And honestly, we couldn't agree with Seinfeld's curmudgeonly character more.

Ranging from a midcentury modern–inspired chaise lounger to a sophisticated settee, we've found a covetable couch in the swanky fabric that would work in any space, no matter its style.
