Haute Couture

Behold! A whimsical bergere chair upholstered in button tufted sea foam green silk and encrusted in seashells with silver leaf front legs. The chair is titled the "Haute Couture" designed by Carlo Rampazzi and handmade in Italy. This beauty retails at over $27,000.00.

If you're looking for something similar (and significantly more affordable...) you might like to check out the 'Best' Tufted Club Chair. It's not quite as flashy but is definitely much more budget friendly.. and who doesn't love that?

Old Hickory Tannery Tufted Velvet Sofa

This elegant sofa comes from Old Hickory Tannery, a family owned American company based out of Hickory, North Carolina. As the name reflects, they originally started out with a focus on fine leather upholstery but have since branched out to a much wider range of fabrics and styles. 
All of their upholstery is cut and sewn entirely by hand, all frames are constructed of solid hardwood and the nailhead trim is all hand-hammered. It's safe to say that they definitely put a lot of focus on fine quality craftsmanship. 

I chose this particular tufted sofa to showcase because it stood out as having the perfect combination of style and comfort - and what an eye-catcher! 
The wine-colored velvet looks lush and welcoming and the sweetheart back with rolled arms, nailhead trim and turned legs give it a wonderfully timeless appeal. The frame is gorgeous maple with a special finish for a dimensional look. 
As a bonus, this sofa actually comes with four accent pillows as shown, however I think it looks beautiful standing alone and could even look great with some contrasting color accents of your own choice as well. Imagine more modern turquoise throw pillows or blanket for a funkier 
and less formal feel!

Wingback Tufted Headboard Bed in Velvet by Skyline Furniture

I really love the look of these tufted wingback headboards and I feel like they create the perfect blend of stately elegance and warm comfort for the bedroom.

If you're looking for a style like this, I found a great option that comes upholstered in a lush tufted velvet from Skyline Furniture (Waveland and Brompton Styles) that comes in all sizes from Twin, to California King and in four beautiful colors (White, Pewter, Chocolate and Honey).

The links I've placed above are actually for the full bed frame, not just the headboard, so you really get the overall look which pulls it all together. The whole bed is hand crafted in the USA in a sturdy, solid pine wood frame and although there is some simple assembly required, I've read good reviews on how easy the assembly actually is for their products, which is always nice to hear.

The color options for this Skyline Bed are pretty basic, but do offer a lot of versatility. The first photos posted above with the white headboard and bright blue walls really show how you can make this piece pop, and gives an idea on how you can make this bed work to fit your own personal style.

PS - Although I couldn't find any specific reviews on this particular bed style, I have read reviews on other Skyline products (and specifically their tufted headboards) and I feel like that is better than nothing so if you're interested - here is a similar tufted headboard with reviews on Amazon.com, the Skyline Surrey Tufted Headboard in Shantung.

Greenwich Sofa & Chair

Both of these pieces are designs by Robin Bruce, and both come in a huge range of color and fabric styles which makes them the perfect option for a custom fit to your own home decor.

I personally love that you can really create your own statement by which fabric and color you choose. With the sofa, for example, the design and shape is incredibly inviting and elegant and has both modern and classic elements within it - either of which could be played up or down with your upholstery choice.
If you're going for a more modern feel, you could go with something like a Blue-Grey Linen or a Khaki Twill. Leaning more towards classic and traditional? Create a more elegant and luxe look with something like a rich Beige Velvet.

The Greenwich Sofa comes in 20 (yes., 20!) different color/fabric combinations which makes it truly customizable! View them all here.

Not to be upstaged, the Greenwich Chair (pictured below) also comes in a variety of color and fabric combinations - a whopping 17 different styles! Although it does come in some solid colors with fabrics like velvet, what's really great about this chair is that it's also available in some really awesome prints.

With this chair model, there are more "traditional" prints available like florals and houndstooth, but my personal favorites are the fun and unique prints like their "Grey Birds" and "Pink Dots" (view more here).
Either way, a solid or print of this model would make an amazing custom accent chair for almost any room.

Customer Review - Sofa & Chair;
"I bought the Greenwich chair and sofa and chose grey velvet as the fabric for both. They look beautiful, very elegant and head-turning. They are both on the firm side, however, comfort-wise, which helps them to hold their lovely shape, but if you were thinking of using these for cozy curling-up places, they would not be the best choice for this."
