With my eyes always on design I have really noticed a touch of felt in even unexpected places. We are used to felt pads under furniture but not the furniture itself! On the weekend I saw a fabulous sofa set upholstered in grey felt and on my recent trip to the Toronto Interior Design Show I saw headboards, pillows, and even lighting. It's a traditional, durable and simple textile that up until recently took a back seat and now it covers the front seat and more!
felt/felt/ Noun: A kind of cloth made by rolling and pressing wool or another suitable textile while applying moisture or heat, causing the fibers to mat...

Here are some fabulous felt examples!.
If you fancy some felt then take a closer look when you are out shopping, I know I will . . . . . . . . .
