  • I have a slipcovered one from pottery barn, I love it. It doesn't get imprints at all. I love it. You can just throw the covers in the wash.

  • o boy....i have never had a velvet sofa, but i had a chair and let me tell you it attracted hair (my hair, cat hair, dust bunnies, lint, you name it) like a magnet. it was easy to clean with just a lint brush, but it drove me insane because it looked a mess so often

  • I have a velvet chair and I love it! I haven't had any problems with cleaning it at all. Of course, I don't know about pet hair - I don't have any pets.

  • Real velvet "crushes" and isn't good for everyday furniture. Are you talking about microfiber or velour?

    Answer by twin_mommy at 2:41 PM on Dec. 6, 2010

  • No, I don´t really like microfiber. maybe velour.
