The Best Velvet For Luxury Sofas?

From Crushed to Silk, Cotton to Synthetic - the range of velvet sofa options available and knowing which one to choose can often be overwhelming. One of the reasons we at Shekåbba have carefully chosen the Wind sofa as our top choice for a long-lasting luxury velvet sofa is the quality standard of it’s velvet upholstery.

Danish Velvet Sofa - Broste Wind

A Luxury Classic-Velvet Sofa

The Wind sofa suite is upholstered in classic commercial-grade fire-retardant (FR) polyester velvet. Classic polyester velvet is head and shoulders above it’s competitors, and this is due to it’s unrivalled durability & longevity. In a busy home, office or hotel, cotton velvets and their derivatives will look great initially yet the cotton pile will wear off much more easily leading to balding on seat edges and sofa arms. Added difficulties with cotton velvets include fast colour fading, high dust-absorbency and difficulties removing stains. However, the commercial-grade synthetic velvet used in the Wind sofa holds it’s colour and thread density for decades without wearing down. Classic polyester velvet is also easy to clean and repellant to water and stains as we will discuss later. 

A Commercial-Grade Luxury Velvet Sofa

The luxury velvet used in our Broste sofas meets industry durability standards for commercial use according to it’s exceptional results in the Martindale rub test. This test is an internationally recognised test, where a sofa fabric is subjected to revolutions of abrasion before the fabric wears away. The number of revolutions is recorded in order to gauge the fabric's resistance to wear and thus what use it is fit for. The higher the revolutions in the Martindale test the more durable the velvet is, we are proud to say the the classic velvet used for our luxury velvet suite passes the Martindale test at 45,000 revolutions. To put this in perspective a fabric deemed tough enough for commercial use is required to pass the test at 30,000 revolutions. 

 A perfect choice of stunning velvet sofa for all who want the peace of mind of a future-proof contemporary sofa for their home.

An Easy Clean Luxury Velvet Sofa

The classic polyester velvet used on the whole Wind sofa suite has the added benefit of water-repellant technology. The dense thread count and shorter pile makes this velvet easy to clean and repellant to water spills. All the cushions of the wind sofa can be removed for ease of maintenance. This velvet comes with the added bonus of being made from Fire-Retardant threads that will last the life of the velvet, whereas the Fire-Retardancy of treated FR fabrics dissipate over time when washed or scrubbed. A perfect choice for those wanting a safe luxury velvet sofa that will stay looking great for many years to come.

For those wanting to ensure their home has a positive impact on the environment and their health, the Wind velvet sofa is a perfect choice. Broste Copenhagen are proud to be able to apply the Nordic Ecolabel, which over the past 25 years has made it easier for consumers and businesses to choose the most environmentally sound products. Furthermore, the textiles used within the sofa are fully OKEO-TEX certified to Standard 100.

OKEO-TEX® 100 is an independent testing system and healthcare label to certify the absence of toxic or harmful chemicals in the sofas, benefiting the health of those you love and the environment.

This international label rigorously tests that no toxins are either used in the production of or left within your sofa. OKEO-TEX® certification has become a must for many customers in recent years as many designer sofas are manufactured using toxic-chemicals especially within efforts to meet Fire regulations for the UK market. Broste is proud to certify that they have gone the extra mile to ensure this is not the case. You can now enjoy a cosy read or film in luxury with the peace of mind  that no toxins are escaping into your skin or home environment.
