I think the velvet that never wears is a bit wool and usually some silk. it can be made of synthetics but I think it's too soon to talk of superior wear from synthetics, the old blends are intact after 100 years. Alot like rugs, there were master makers whose fabrics last.

Wow.....4 out of 5 (not a fan of curvy sofas), who knew?
Velvet can be super nice (we have some by Robert Allen that I love), esp. if cotton/mohair/silk, or a mix thereof, but beware of the synthetic types, as they tend to feel cheap.

A curvy sofa doesn’t have to mean the extreme rounded shapes here. How about a beautiful rolled arm sofa that is comfy sitting sideways with your feet up and a nice cup of tea? Boxy sofas need a couple of pillows for comfort, but the perfect rounded arm is always ready!
