One of the most luxurious fabrics used in design is velvet and I have seen it appear more and more in interiors over the last few months. It has been around for centuries mostly with an association to royalty, used for robes, drapes and bedding. As with everything else it has popped up over time in homes, gaining and waning in popularity. Currently making it's presence known again on chairs, sofas and on pillows and drapery. I have seen soft and subtle colours but most recently bright, saturated colours. Velvet can be woven from many different fibre's but most often from silk. The tufts of fabric are cut, short and dense creating a "velvety" soft feel. What could be more fabulous, luxurious and comforting all at the same time. Check out these velvet delights!
It's the perfect time of year for a little touch of velvet, reach for it.........
