What is velvet?

Velvet is not a type of fabric (synthetic, silk, etc.) but a weave. The unique manufacturing process creates the dense, short pile it is known for. My Meredith Sofa and Manhattan Dining Chairs are both synthetic. This makes them much easier to maintain than natural fibers.

How to Care For Velvet Furniture

We added four modern velvet dining chairs (the Manhattan Dining Chairs), to our breakfast nook. Then, this fall, we added a beautiful velvet sofa (the Meredith Velvet Sofa), to our living room. I have always loved velvet’s look and feel, but it has been difficult to incorporate into our home due to my 3 young children and my haphazard housekeeping skills.

How to Care For Velvet Furniture

My velvet sofa and velvet chairs are easy to vacuum with the upholstery attachment on my vacuum cleaner. This helps get rid of the hair and dust that can build up in the soft fibers. This is something I do about once every two weeks. It is easy to clean food spillages on my dining room chairs. I just use a soft, damp cloth to wipe them away. I use elbow grease and don’t use any cleaner. My velvet chairs are much easier to clean than the linen-like fabric dining chairs that I used in our breakfast nook.
