How do I care for my velvet chairs?

Velvet chairs do benefit from some TLC, and if correctly maintained you will find the lifespan of your chairs increases significantly. Find our top tips below. You can see more in our care guide.

  • Vacuum and brush regularly with a special upholstery attachment, or use a soft hand brush once a week
  • Avoid rubbing any stains as doing so may damage the weave. Instead gently blot the area with a dry cloth.
  • A steamer is perfect for cleaning your velvet upholstery. Remember to use the steamer in the opposite direction to the pile, d use the lowest temperature setting.
