First of all, take into account the colour and style of your crushed velvet sofa, as well as the rest of the decor in your room, and select your cushions accordingly. Choosing some crushed velvet cushions that match your sofa is an advisable first step. Alternatively, add some smaller silk or velvet cushions in a contrasting colour to make your sofa pop, whilst maintaining the same amount of grandeur and cosiness.
Furthermore, placing a throw over the arm of your crushed velvet sofa will not only add some texture to your room but will also make it feel more homely. Not to mention it can double as a blanket to snuggle up in during the colder months
